Golden Raisins, Hunza, Organic, 5oz
Enjoy these Himalayan raisins right out of the bag as a high-energy snack! Sometimes golden raisins are called "sultanas." Perfect for snacking, baking, and mixing into yogurt. Raw Hunza Fruits and Nuts are grown 6,000 to 9,000 feet above sea level using ancient organic farming methods. Mountain side terraced orchards are irrigated with mineral-rich glacial melt waters from the highest elevations. Over the millennium of time this natural process has produced two-foot thick topsoil, saturated with life giving nutrients containing calcium, copper, gold and iron. Unsulphured, no preservatives and no chemical fertilizers are ever used. Hunza Fruits and Nuts are allowed to attain full ripeness and bold flavor "naturally" before being hand picked and dried under the sun and crisp, clean mountainous air.
Nutritionists have long touted the health benefits of raw foods. The "Raw" logo indicates that the food was not heated above 118 F, which is the temperature at which many beneficial enzymes are believed to be destroyed. Raw foods contain more usable nutrients than their "cooked" counterparts, along with being easily absorbed by the body.
