These organic apricots are soft and subtly sweet - perfect for snaking. Not only are dried apricots delicious, but they are also packed with nutrition. When apricots are dried, the relative concentration of nutrients is increased resulting in a vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium, and iron content of above 25% daily value for a 100-gram serving. They also have a lower glycemic index and high fiber content. Because they aren't treated with sulfur dioxide commonly used as a preservative for dried apricots, they are brown in color rather than bright orange.
