Description

Organic Sultanas are a great natural sweetener.

Our organic sultanas are lightly dressed in organic sunflower oil to prevent clumping. Organic sultanas are a really delicious addition to baking recipes and are great for a simple snack.  Organic Sultanas can be used in so many ways and are a popular ingredient in sweet and savoury dishes to add natural sweetness.  They are particularly good in fruit cake and scones.

They start off as grapes and are dried naturally to produce these tasty little treats.  There is not a huge difference between raisins, currants and sultanas – they simply come from slightly different grape varieties.  Sultanas are larger and lighter in colour – go with what you like best or try our mixed vine fruits so you don’t have to choose!

If you want to start using your sultanas but don’t know where to begin then why not try using them in this vegan granola bar recipe?

Nutritional Information

The Nutritional Benefits of Organic Sultanas.

Organic sultanas are a source of potassium, iron, copper and manganese.

Manganese: This vital nutrient contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, formation of connective tissue and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Iron: It is vital to get enough iron and many whole foods contain high levels of it.  Iron contributes to normal cognitive function, immune system function, reduction of tiredness, energy-yielding metabolism, formation of red blood cells, transportation of oxygen and cell division.

Potassium: This essential nutrient contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, muscle function and the normal maintenance of blood pressure.

Copper: This trace mineral is needed to protect cells from oxidative stress and for normal function of the immune system.  It also contributes to normal connective tissue and functioning of the nervous system.
