* Dark Raisins
Our deliciously sweet dark raisins are excellent for snacking or baking. These nutrient-dense dried grapes are an excellent source of fiber and iron.

Health Benefits of Raisins
1) Support the Heart – Raisins are a heart-healthy food that can lower harmful cholesterol levels. Naturally low in calories and high in soluble fiber, raisins stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce the uptake of cholesterol into the bloodstream. A 2012 study led by the University of Connecticut found that people who consumed one cup of raisins per day and walked regularly reduced their LDL cholesterol levels.

2) Build Strong Bones – Bones are the support system of the entire body, so it’s important to keep them healthy and strong. Raisins are an excellent source of a trace element known as boron, which plays a critical role in bone health. Research suggests that boron supplementation can reduce the risk for osteoporosis, a disease in which the bones become fragile and weak.

3) Protect the Eyes – The antioxidants present in raisins can help keep your eyes healthy well into your golden years. Vitamin A and carotenoids protect the eye’s retina by preventing oxidation caused by UV rays. They also reduce the risk for age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness among older adults.

4) Lower Blood Sugar – Blood sugar spikes can put a major strain on your metabolism and are especially harmful for diabetics, but enjoying raisins on a daily basis can help. A 2012 study presented at the American Diabetes Association’s 72nd Annual Scientific Session found that people who snacked on raisins three times a day for 12 weeks reduced their average post-meal glucose levels by 16 percent.

5) Promote Healthy Teeth & Gums – The next time you’re looking for a sweet treat your dentist will approve of, snack on a handful of dark raisins. Research presented at the American Society for Microbiology pinpointed five compounds in raisins that fight oral bacteria associated with cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. Now that should keep your pearly whites smiling!

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Quiches, especially those made with onions and mushrooms should not be allowed to cool. Both of these vegetables have a high water

Quiches

content, which will be released into the quiche as it cools. The result: a soggy crust and runny filling. If buying pre-made quiche, look for ones that don’t have onions or mushrooms, and when making your own, make sure to serve after letting it sit for 10 minutes ( which will prevent oozing ).
