These apricots are for cooking.
Apricots are an excellent source of vitamin A, a very good source of vitamin C, and a good source of dietary fibre and potassium.
Apricots contain phytochemicals called carotenoids, compounds that give red, orange and yellow colours to fruits and vegetables. The powerful antioxidant Lycopene is one of the carotenoids found in apricots. These apricots have added sulphur dioxide to give them their distinctive orangey colour. Other unsulphured apricots are available in our dried fruits range.
