SO, ARE RAISINS GOOD FOR YOU?


When it really comes down to it, raisins can be beneficial to the body. They are a natural source of quick energy while being convenient and oftentimes proportioned already. The dried variation of grapes is further suggested to contain more nutrient concentrations, though with more concentration also comes with more calories. Further importance is not solely based on the raisin themselves, but rather on what they may be put in, including calorically-dense raisin oatmeal cookies or trail mix. However, everything, including raisins are best in moderation.
