Fresh Fruit vs. Dried Fruit

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
If your goal is to lose weight, a serving of fresh fruit offers more volume and contains more water than dried fruit, which will help you to feel full sooner and longer.

The main difference between fresh fruit and dried fruit is the calorie and sugar content. Since dried fruit loses water [and therefore volume] during the drying process, its nutrient, calorie and sugar content becomes more concentrated when dried.

When you eat a handful of dried fruit you are consuming more calories than you would if you ate that same amount of fresh fruit. Therefore, when it comes to dried fruit, it may be worth being mindful about portion sizes in order to help make progress towards you goals.
