Nutritional Benefits of Dried Papaya
Dried papaya spears are made from fresh papaya fruit, which is grown in many tropical areas. The spears are thin strips of fresh papaya that have been heated to remove moisture. This process reduces the weight of the snack and increases its shelf life exponentially. The nutrition in dried papaya spears varies between brands. Added ingredients, and the intensity of heat applied, affect nutrient density but happily, dried papaya retains its natural orange color.
Dried Papaya Slices are great in Summer
Dried papaya slices are a chewy snack that gives you high energy because they are rich in carbohydrates. In hot weather, just one slice can revive you. A serving of minced papaya spears goes well in yogurt, over ice cream, in cookie or bread dough, with trail mix or in smoothies.
On average, a healthy adult woman should consume between 22 and 28 grams of dietary fiber per day, and a healthy adult man between 28 and 34. Regular consumption of dietary fiber regulates bowel movements, lowers cholesterol, helps control blood sugar levels and aids in weight loss. One serving of unsweetened dried papaya spears provides around 3 grams of dietary fiber; sweetened dried papaya spears contain the same amount. One serving provides women with 11 percent of their DRI of fiber and men with 9 percent.

STORAGE OF GERBS
We strongly recommend storing in an airtight container in a cool, dark environment like a pantry or kitchen cabinet, away from direct exposure to sunlight or excessive heat like an oven. The amount of times you open the container and let in the harmful effects of oxygen will only increase the likelihood of rancidity; thus we encourage you to not empty more than 1 pound of product at a time. Gerbs can be frozen too, but we do not recommend it, because the cell structures will change as the product thaws out!
Great product. Used product before.

Just what I was looking for First, Whole Foods stopped carrying this in bulk (because of Amazon I'm sure). Then I found them at Sprouts. Then Sprouts switched to a terrible brand and product so here I am. These are just the same and just right: great taste, not a mucky consistency, not too sweet. These are very good, and I will be ordering again. Also I compared dried papaya products and prices on many websites. These are a good value and good price.
