Organic Wild Fragrant Apricots

A relative of the peach, apricots are a fragrant fruit with soft, velvety skin. When dried, the natural flavour and goodness is preserved, so you get all the taste and nutrition in a convenient format.

Our apricots have a stronger sweet-sour flavour than most. We source them from the mountain ranges along the old Silk Road, where the trees help contribute to natural biodiversity. Our apricots are hand-picked from wild-growing trees, and then gently sun-dried to preserve their natural taste.

Healthy and Delicious

Apricots are known for their high levels of vitamin A, vitamins B1 and B2, iron and potassium. Vitamin B1 and iron are renowned for their support of metabolism, helping the body to yield energy from food. The array of other nutrients in apricots also supports healthy nervous system function.

Apricots are a versatile fruit, perfect for adding a touch of sweetness to a range of dishes, and can easily be added to trail mixes, salads, or simply enjoyed as a snack.

Our modern facilities use a combination of eco-friendly pressure treatment and cutting-edge spectroscopy to check, clean, and select our products, guaranteeing premium quality in every pack. The whole process is done without the use of harmful artificial processing methods, for sustainable snacking that's Right by Nature.

FAQ

Dried apricots offer numerous health benefits as they are rich in dietary fiber, promoting digestive health, and providing essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium, and iron. Vitamin A supports vision and immune function, while vitamin E acts as an antioxidant. Potassium contributes to heart health and fluid balance, and iron is vital for healthy blood cells. Additionally, dried apricots are a convenient and nutrient-dense snack that can aid in weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness. However, due to their natural sugars, they should be consumed in moderation, making them a valuable addition to a balanced diet.

Yes, dried apricots are good for you. They are a nutritious snack that offers several health benefits. Dried apricots are a rich source of dietary fiber, which supports digestive health and helps maintain regular bowel movements. They are also high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium, and iron. Vitamin A is essential for vision and immune function, while vitamin E acts as an antioxidant. Potassium is crucial for heart health and maintaining proper fluid balance, and iron is important for healthy blood cells. Dried apricots are a nutrient-dense snack that can be part of a balanced diet and provide a range of essential nutrients. However, they are calorie-dense due to their natural sugars, so portion control is advisable, especially if you're watching your calorie intake.

The recommended daily intake of dried apricots can vary depending on individual dietary needs and calorie goals. As a general guideline, a serving size of dried apricots is about 1/4 cup (approximately 40 grams), which is equivalent to 4-5 dried apricots. This portion typically provides around 80-100 calories and is a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. However, it's essential to consider your overall calorie intake and dietary objectives. If you're trying to manage your calorie intake or have specific dietary requirements, consult with a healthcare provider or a dietitian for personalized guidance on the appropriate daily amount of dried apricots for your diet.

Dried apricots can last for several months when stored properly. When kept in an airtight container at room temperature, dried apricots can last for up to 6 months. Storing them in the refrigerator can extend their shelf life by several months. Freezing dried apricots can also help preserve them for longer, up to a year or more. It's important to keep dried apricots away from moisture and heat sources, as this can cause them to spoil or become moldy. Additionally, it's a good idea to check the expiration date on the package before consuming dried apricots, and to discard them if they appear discolored, have a strange odor, or taste off.

Dried apricots are not toxic to dogs, but they should be fed in moderation. Apricots, both fresh and dried, contain natural sugars that can be high in calories and may lead to digestive upset if consumed excessively. Moreover, the dried version is more calorie-dense than fresh apricots, so portion control is important to prevent excessive calorie intake. Remove the pit, as apricot pits contain cyanide and should never be given to dogs. Always consult with a veterinarian before introducing new foods into your dog's diet to ensure it's safe for their individual health and dietary needs.
