1310It is believed that raisins were discovered as long ago as 1490 B.C. when farmers happened upon grapes drying on a vine, and many years later the first vineyards were developed with the purpose of growing what are today known as raisins.
Our raisins are grown in Australian Vineyards and sun dried on the vine to retain their natural goodness and sweet flavour.
Raisins pack a lot of nutrients into their small size. They are high in potassium, which is an alkaline mineral important for the nervous system, muscular contractions and for healthy blood pressure. They are a good source of iron and B6 and are rich in beneficial digestive fibre and good carbohydrates.
