Additional Information:
Organic Dried (White) Mulberries. Mulberries are packed with vitamins and minerals, including the antioxidant Resveratrol which has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. This nutritional profile means that Mulberries have been used in medicines for millennia. They’re delicious on their own or added to cereals etc…

The health benefits of mulberries include their ability to improve digestive health, lower cholesterol, aid in weight loss efforts, increase circulation, build bone tissue, boost the immune system, prevent certain cancers, slow down the aging process, lower blood pressure, protect eye health, and improve the overall metabolism of the body.

Mulberries are the sweet, hanging fruit from a genus of deciduous trees that grow in a variety of temperate areas around the world. Thought to possibly have originated in China, they have spread throughout the world and are highly praised for their unique flavour, as well as a truly impressive and unusual composition of nutrients for a berry. In fact, most varieties found in different parts of the world are considered to be “native” from those areas, as they are so widespread. The scientific name of mulberries varies depending on which species you are looking at, but the most common types are Morus australis and Morus nigra, but there are dozens of other delicious varieties as well. In terms of appearance, the berries grow very fast when they are young but gradually slow as their colour changes from white or green through to pink or red, and eventually settling on dark purple or even black.

Storage Advice:
Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

Dried fruits are simply fruits with the water removed. This makes your fruit last much, much longer than if they were fresh. Since most of the water is removed from the fruit the flavour is intensified, the storage is simplified and the shelf life is greatly lengthened. The drying process can be done naturally by the sun or in a dehydrator (or less often in a slow oven). Because of its vibrant taste and proven health benefits, like no fat and high fibre, dried fruit is one of the easiest and most popular ways to eat fruit. It is especially popular with hikers and cyclists.

How long does dried fruit last?
When properly stored, the shelf life of dried fruits such as raisins (dried grapes), craisins (dried cranberries), dried apricots and many other dried fruits will last well beyond their best by date. Remember that dried fruit, like some other fruits, usually has a best by date and not a use by date or expiration date. Because of this distinction, you may safely consume dried fruit even after the best before date has lapsed.

You can help dried fruit stay fresh longer by storing it in your refrigerator or in your pantry in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants. Some fruits, like prunes which are moister than many of the others, enjoy the moisture of the fridge and taste better cold.

For a long-term option, you can also store your dried fruit in a freezer. Freezing is supposed to be an indefinite form of storage, but after varying amounts of time, most foods start to break down or develop freezer burn. Properly dried fruit seems to be an exception – it really does freeze well for extended amounts of time if properly sealed with an airtight sealer.
