Freeze dried fruits vs Dried fruits

Freeze dried fruit is a new category in England, we are so used to eating dried fruits for such a long time. What are  the differences? Which one is the healthiest for a snack? Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 12.49.22           Freeze dried  Fruits                                      VS                                                                    Dried fruits   In one hand the freeze drying is the process of removing almost all of a fruit’s water content. The benefits? Freeze dried fruit is surprisingly nutritious. Antioxidants found in fresh fruit are maintained through the freeze drying process and freeze dried fruits are  packed without added sugar. Freeze dried fruit is a convenient way to get your necessary amount of fruit on a day-to-day basis and it is often very cost effective. Freeze dried fruits do not take up a lot of space and they tend to be the fruit of choice for people who enjoy outdoor activities. On the other hand dried fruits are fruits that have had almost all of the water content removed through drying methods. The fruit shrinks during this process, leaving a small, energy-dense dried fruit. They are delicious and nutritious but fruit tends to contain significant amounts of natural sugars. The reason is because the water has been removed from dried fruit, this concentrates all the sugar and calories in a much smaller package.It’s often hard to find dried fruit that hasn’t been processed with added sugar.   GivingTree Comp 1 photo 2

Why should we eat raw?

Everybody wants to eat raw, but why is there such excitement about raw food? Heating food which is heating to high temperatures destroys its nutrients and natural enzymes, which is bad because enzymes boost digestion, and fight chronic disease. In short when you cook it, you kill it! Raw fruit, fish, vegetables, nuts and seeds are all brimming with vitamins and minerals which can help boost our immune system, give our gums a great workout, keep us slim and leave our skin looking young and silky. So let's eat Raw! Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 14.53.18 See below all the health benefits from raw food:

  • You will have more energy
  • Your skin will have a much better appearance
  • Your digestion will improve
  • You will lose weight
  • Your risk of developing heart and cardiovascular diseases will significantly drop
    Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 15.02.09   However, a diet made up of raw food and nothing else is unhealthy because we are not getting all the protein and carbohydrates found in other groups of food such as meat and grains.   An ideal diet is composed with your daily quota of five portions of fruit & vegetables and the right amount of protein & fats.

Our Giving Tree fruits are 100% raw and perfect to help you to maintain a healthy diet.
