Fresh fruit vs dried fruit.

Quote  |  Reply
I was wondering if fresh fruit and dried fruit have the same health benifets or if one is better for you than the other.

Dried fruit is more calorie-dense because it's missing the water that fresh fruit has.  Just remember that calories can add up quickly while eating dried fruit!  The water in fresh fruit also helps fill you up as well.

Fresh!   Way too many calories in dried.

I don't think it makes a huge difference. Dried fruit is easy to overeat and usually contains preservatives and added sugar, but it's more convenient sometimes. I like the taste of dried apricots better than fresh.
