Nutritional value of dried apricots

Nutritional composition of dried apricots

dried apricotsIn short, as mentioned, “orejones” are dried apricots or dehydrated peaches. They contain many sugars, a moderate amount of protein and are very rich in minerals:

Dried apricots contain mainly many sugars, which provide energy. But apricots do not contain fats and, therefore, they do not constitute an energy contribution as important as artificial snacks with added fat (chocolates, pastries, …). This is because fat is the nutrient with the highest amount of calories per gram.

The protein content of dried apricots is moderate (5g per 100g), however, although it is a considerable contribution taking into account that of other fruits, it can not be considered a food rich in this nutrient and should be complemented with other foods rich in proteins
