Nutritional Benefits – Gerbs Organic Dried Apple Slices
Eating dehydrated fruit is one convenient way to reach your recommended fruit intake, which is 2 cups daily for men and 1.5 cups for women, recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Since dehydrated fruit loses volume during the dehydration process, you should consider a half cup of dehydrated apples the equivalent of a 1-cup serving of fruit.
One of the main benefits of dehydrated apples is their dietary fiber content. A half-cup serving of the dried fruit contains 3.7 grams of dietary fiber. If you follow a 2,000-calorie diet, the snack provides 13 percent of your daily fiber intake, according to the Colorado State University Extension, or 18 percent of your daily fiber requirements if you follow a 1,500-calorie diet. Fiber helps keep you regular — it bulks up and softens your stools to prevent constipation. It also slows digestion, preventing blood sugar spikes that leave you tired and hungry shortly after your meal. Since fiber helps keep you satisfied after a meal, dehydrated apples make for a filling snack.
Dehydrated apples also provide a source of vitamins that benefit your health. The apples contain very small amounts of other vitamins C and A, two nutrients that keep your skin and bones strong and healthy. They contain several B vitamins, which collectively support your metabolism and nourish your liver and skin. A half-cup serving contains approximately 6 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin B-6 and 3 percent of your daily intake of vitamin B-5, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Both vitamins help you make neurotransmitters, chemicals required for brain function.
Dehydrated apples also benefit your health due to their mineral content. Each half-cup serving contains 4 percent of your daily recommended intake of potassium, a mineral essential to nerve and brain function, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Dehydrated apples also contain a small amount of iron — 8 percent of the recommended daily intake for men or 3 percent for women, according to the Institute. You use this iron to make new red blood cells, so your tissues can get a fresh supply of oxygen from your bloodstream. Eating dehydrated apples provides small amounts of other minerals, including copper, manganese and selenium.
Dehydrated apples prove useful in the kitchen, lending flavor to a range of dishes. Try warming chopped dehydrated apples on a stovetop along with dried cranberries, apple cider and cinnamon to make a sweet condiment that pairs well with lean pork loin or chicken breasts. Add a handful of dehydrated apples to your oatmeal in the morning, then top with sliced almonds and cinnamon for a healthy alternative to pre-packaged apple-cinnamon oatmeal. Finally, try pairing dehydrated apple with mixed nuts and seeds for a homemade trail mix to keep you full when you’re on the go.
