PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

 

California Raisins. This all-natural nutritional powerhouse provides fiber, antioxidants, potassium and more. Raisins are convenient, versatile, fat free and naturally low in sodium. Additionally, traditional, no-sugar added dried fruit – like California Raisins – is an ideal way to achieve the new USDA’s MyPlate guidelines that recommend filling half of your plate with fruits & vegetables.

We will share new California Raisins nutrition research (including positive impacts on cardiovascular health) and bring in Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD, author of “MyPlate for Moms, How to Feed Yourself & Your Family Better,” to discuss the nutritional benefits of this all-natural, no sugar-added dried fruit.
