Raisins are grapes that have been either sun-dried or mechanically dried in ovens. Sun-dried, seeded raisins retain more of the fruit's natural health benefits.

It is particularly important to buy organic raisins, as non-organic grapes tend to contain especially high levels of pesticides. Raisins should be stored in air-tight containers in the refrigerator to preserve moisture and freshness.
