Raisins

Nutritional Benefits

Rich in iron and high in energy, raisins are the perfect naturally sweet treat. Did you know – grapes are in fact berries? They are a little more humble when compared to their cousin, blueberries, but do contain those magic berry ingredients called flavonoids or proanthocyanidins which assist our bodies to neutralise inflammation and balance our guts. 

Instead of refined sugar, why not stir in some berry magic into oats porridge, your favourite biscuit or rusk recipe?
