A summer stone fruit that stars in many desserts, peaches taste as bright and sunny as they look. Dried peaches come in handy when fresh peaches are out of season. You can conveniently pack the dried fruits for lunches and picnics.
Dried peaches have nutrients that make them a healthy addition to most diets. The fruit contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber helps prevent constipation. Soluble fiber feeds beneficial bacteria in the gut. Peaches may lower cholesterol by binding to bile acids, which contain cholesterol. After binding to bile acids, the peach flesh moves through the excretory system, taking the attached cholesterol with it.
Peaches are rich in carotenoids and caffeic acid. Both antioxidants are believed to have anti-cancer properties. The fruit also contains polyphenols, which kill and reduce the spread of cancer cells in lab studies. Allergy suffers may especially experience advantages to including peaches in their diet. The tangy stone fruits may prevent the release of histamines, which trigger allergy symptoms. Peaches may also contain compounds that help prevent insulin resistance.
