As much as possible, raw and natural fruits are the best way to load up on your vitamins and minerals. But there will be times when your tongue is craving for a different texture and once in awhile, you eat dried fruits.
Here’s the deal – dried fruits are with added sugars and salts. And the calories it contains are 300 to 400 percent more compared to raw fruits. Like dried apples, one cup is 209 calories whereas the raw ones are 57 calories only.
