Also known as Armenian plums, apricots have a sweet, tangy taste that is a combination of a peach and a plum. Dried apricots are as common as their fresh components. They have a sweeter, more concentrated taste and a chewy texture.
The health benefits associated with consuming dried apricots are numerous. The small stone fruits' bright yellow-orange color is a reflection of their high beta carotene content. They also have high levels of antioxidants, including Vitamins A, C, and E.
Vitamins A and E reduce night blindness and protect the eye from free radical damage. Vitamins C and E protect the skin against oxidative stress and UV damage. Apricots have flavinoids, which protect against illnesses, including heart disease and diabetes by reducing oxidative stress. They have high levels of soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps maintain healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
