We take pride in our dried peaches—if you ask us, they’re the
best-tasting dried peaches our green Earth has to offer.
Domestically grown in California, you’ll fall in love with these
peaches after just one bite. Dried peaches are moist, delicious and
full of potassium.
Health Benefits of Dried Peaches
Red-pigmented beta-carotene is a powerful member of the antioxidant
family. Visible in the vibrant orange color of California peaches,
beta-carotene is transformed to vitamin A in the body.
Vitamin A plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin, internally
and externally, as well as in protecting the eyes, building strong
teeth and bones and healthy hair. Additionally, research indicates
that vitamin A has been linked to reduced rates of cancer and heart
disease. Just one serving of California peaches contains six
percent of the U.S. RDA for vitamins.
Vitamin C boosts the immune system, promotes healing and helps
prevent cancer, heart disease and stroke. This aggressive
antioxidant is essential to optimum health and California peaches
can help. One half-cup serving of canned peaches contains eight
percent of the U.S. RDA.
Research indicates that vitamin E is particularly effective in
preventing heart disease and breast cancer. While vitamin E is
primarily found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and wheat germ,
California peaches contain a significant amount. In a study
conducted by Ohio State University, one half-cup serving of canned
peaches contributes up to 24% of the U.S. RDA for vitamin E.
Peaches offer a source of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber,
vitamin C and vitamin A. This nutritious fruit also contains boron,
known to boost estrogen levels in postmenopausal women, stimulate
the brain, and aid in prevention of osteoporosis.
