Dried apricots are fat-free and packed with nutrients that are good for blood pressure and help to control cholesterol.

They contain lycopene, potassium, beta-carotene and pectin – plus they are a rich source of iron too. The drying process may rob them of some vitamin C but it more than makes up for it with these extra nutritional benefits. Apricots are also low in sodium which makes them perfect for including as part of a blood-pressure busting diet.

When it comes to selecting dried apricots make sure you go for the organic variety since these won’t have been exposed to sulfur dioxide – a process that makes them retain their orange color. Organic apricots are a brown color, and as well as being healthier – they are tastier.
