Raisin contains very little water, so it has a very high concentration of the nutrients which are found in fresh grapes. Raisin is also very good for people doing sport, being an excellent energy source which helps physical activity. It has depurative, detox, tonic and invigorating properties as well. Raisin is also very rich in mineral nutrients, which are found especially in the peel (potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, fluorine), rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, C and in sugars (glucose and fructose).
Moreover, raisin is highly recommended for older people, since it combats hypertension, arteriosclerosis, arthritis and gout. It is also a very good laxative and stimulates diuresis.
