Fresh v. Dried Fruits

Knoxville (WVLT) - This time of year, produce departments are piled high with fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and cherries.

But given the choice, nutritionists say some people often go for the dried variety. The question is—which is better for you?

Fresh fruits are rich in vitamins A and C, Folate, Potassium and Fiber.

Dried fruits often lack nutrients, due to the drying process.

And although dried fruit is portable and non-perishable, it can also pack a lot more calories than its fresh fruit counterparts.
