I found a source of dried organic berry powder from North of 49 Naturals in Vancouver BC I'd like to use in smoothies and more. These are low thermally dried and claim to have much nutrients. It is much more economical than fresh. Two spoons are... (more)

I remember about a study that demonstrated chewing an apple brought a benefit, while consuming it without chewing did not bring that benefit. Obviously fresh is better than dried powder and organic is better than conventional but if you'll use... (more)

I was wondering, a lot of recipes that call for dates do not specify if they are dried or not. Should I presume they are not even when a step is to soak the dates? I have some kind of Dried Korean Dates in my and I am not sure if these will work... (more)

If you are trying to watch your waste, I would agree with Owen and suggest avoiding them. They are extremely high in sugar, although its natural sugar. For me, personally, it sends me over the edge. I love websites with great desserts like paleomg... (more)

I understand dried fruits can be moldy. but when you cook mold, does it die? i'm on SCD with hopes of eliminating candida, and like to eat cooked raisins in my almond flour cookies. anyone have thoughts on if this is ok? thanks!

In general it's not the mold itself that could be a problem, it's the toxins it produces, and cooking does little to remove these.

Ideally I will eat fruit in its natural state. However, I need something easy, potable and for car travel. I have measured out 1 oz nuts and wanted to put some dried fruit ( other than raisins) so how much is appropriate and are some dried fruits... (more)

There's nothing wrong with dried fruit as long as you're conscious of the quantity and get fruit without added sugar. Nutrition in one raisin vs one grape, for instance, is identical except for water content. That said, my preference is for... (more)

I've only been on Paleo for about a week and a half. So far I'm living it as I swear I feel better already. Better except for one little thing. I seem to be always hungry. After a big fattening meal I'm okay for about half an hour and then I'm... (more)

Hi, Paul! It sounds like you're off to a great start. Your body has "noticed" that you've shifted away from some of the foods it was used to and what you're experiencing as "hunger" may be brain cravings for processed food-like products. An easy... (more)

I had a sweet attack and decided to be bad and ate a few sliced of dried mango. I had just landed in a new city and immediately hunted for a grocery store. I guess my craving got the better of me because I didn't check to see if the fruit was... (more)

If you have a problem with sulfur you may be able to take some molybdenum to help with this. There is a genetic polymorphism in the methylation cycle called CBS which may be at fault. Not pleasant! I don't know my CBS status (yet) but I react to... (more)

Ditto to the above. I used to have dried apricots (the LURIDLY ORANGE ONES!) in my lunch-box at school back in the day and always felt wretched afterwards: this turned out to be a prevailing theme as I grew up; treated dried-fruits = murderous... (more)

I understand that too much sugar is bad and that dried fruit/berries contain high concentrations of sugar. I also understand that dried fruit/berries are easy to overconsume. However, I'd love to have a carb filled snack that doesn't spoil within... (more)

Another possibility to consider is dried unsweetened sour cherries. I mention them because they are so flavourful, I find it doesn't take to many to hit the spot (I'm not tempted to go on and on eating them). Why not portion out your fruit... (more)

I don't think pet food gets held to the same standards of quality as people food, so you'd be putting yourself at risk for bacteria and other contaminants. I wouldn't eat it.
