Dried fruit
 
Is dried fruit a good choice as a snack? Does any of the nutritional value lost during the drying process?

I feel like this may be a good snack along with some nuts to keep in my car or backpack for something throughout the day?

Good question. I have a dehydrator that I never use. Let me see if I can get a Twitter response...

From what I'm reading, nutritionally it's about the same or slightly less.

Not sure if that helps. All I got of Facebook was one non-answer...

You own a dehydrator?

i do not have one at school but my mom was thinking of purchasing one so she asked me to try to get some information and i could not find it through searching. I still think it is a pretty good idea.

Thanks for your help

If she doesn't get you one, let me know. I have an extra one that is virtually brand new I could give to you.

if you're worried about losing nutrients, don't. It won't be enough to matter. What is beneficial is the water that is present in most fruits and veggies. Again, not a big loss if you(like most of us here) are drinking plenty of fluids. dry it up and eat
