Discover the Natural Goodness of YallaYum’s Freeze-Dried Fruits

Dried fruits are an excellent choice for those seeking a healthy and delicious alternative to sugary, processed snacks. At YallaYum, we pride ourselves on offering high-quality, 100% natural berries and whole fruits that are freeze-dried immediately after harvest to preserve their freshness and nutritional value—without any added sugars or preservatives. In this article, learn about the variety of dried fruits without added sugar and discover what makes YallaYum’s freeze-dried fruits so healthy and versatile.

Why Are YallaYum’s Dried Fruits So Healthy?

With YallaYum, you benefit from all the positive attributes of fruit as part of a balanced diet. Our freeze-dried strawberries, mangoes, black mulberries and more retain their intense, fruity aroma along with essential vitamins and minerals. These dried fruits are the ideal companion for those seeking a healthy, tasty, and completely natural energy boost without added sugar. Simply put, with YallaYum, you get long-lasting fruit that encapsulates all the benefits of fresh produce in a concentrated form.

Sweet & Healthy: Preserving Vitamins & Minerals

Freeze-dried fruit is made by removing all water content from berries and fruits post-harvest. This gentle freeze-drying process retains all the other essential ingredients, ensuring that the dried fruits are rich in vitamins and minerals. YallaYum’s freeze-dried fruits are a healthy snack that satisfies your sweet cravings purely with natural fructose!

Our freeze-dried strawberries and black mulberries can help meet your daily vitamin C and B intake. Meanwhile, dried coconut chips are a great source of magnesium and calcium. The tropical taste of freeze-dried mango supports balanced iron and iodine intake, while the biotin in sweet-tart mango aids in metabolism.

Understanding Natural vs. Added Sugar

It’s crucial to differentiate between artificial sugars, substitutes, and natural fructose found in fresh fruits. YallaYum’s freeze-dried fruits contain only the natural fructose found in fresh fruit, making our products not “sugar-free” but entirely natural and delicious.

At YallaYum, we are committed to providing healthy and versatile products that support a balanced diet. We ensure that our dried fruits and fruit mixtures are free from artificial added sugars. The delightful natural sweetness in our products comes solely from the ripe fruits themselves.

100% Natural Ingredients: No Artificial Additives

Our dedication to pure, natural dried fruits extends beyond avoiding industrial sugars. The gentle freeze-drying process preserves berries and fruits naturally, allowing you to enjoy them for at least 2-3 months without artificial preservatives or additives. The natural fructose ensures year-round enjoyment, maintaining the fruit’s original shape and color, often intensifying them in the process.

Freeze-Drying: Preserving Taste, Sweetness, and Nutrients

To preserve the full taste, sweetness, vitamins, and vibrant colors of whole fruits and berries, we use a freeze-drying process. This involves freezing ripe, freshly harvested fruits, which helps retain most of their minerals and vitamins. During drying, a vacuum removes all water, preserving the fruits’ nutritional benefits.

Sugar Content in Fresh vs. Freeze-Dried Fruits

Fresh fruits lose significant weight during water removal, meaning a portion of YallaYum’s freeze-dried fruits comes from 5 to 10 times the original weight of fresh fruit. Consequently, 100 grams of dried fruit has more sugar than 100 grams of fresh fruit, essential information for diabetics and those monitoring sugar intake.

While some dried fruits have higher fructose content, they also contain concentrated vitamins and valuable nutrients. The higher fructose content is why some products have a medium Nutri-Score, but the nutrient concentration is much higher than in the same weight of fresh fruit.

Fructose Content in Fruits & Berries

Dried fruits naturally contain more fructose than fresh fruits due to water loss during drying. Below is a comparison of the fructose content in fresh and freeze-dried fruits:

Type of FruitFructose Content per 100g (Fresh Fruit)Fructose Content per 100g (Freeze-Dried Fruit)
Strawberry5.5g47g
Pineapple13g51g
Mango13g79g

The variation in fructose content between dried and fresh fruits depends on the fruit type, variety, and ripeness.

Proper Portioning of Freeze-Dried Fruits

Like any food, dried fruits should be consumed in moderation. Since dried fruits naturally contain a high amount of fructose, they should complement your diet rather than be the main component. Remember that 100 grams of dried fruit is equivalent to 500-1,000 grams of fresh fruit in terms of vitamins, minerals, and natural sugar. Use YallaYum dried fruits in recipes by considering the number of berries and fruits, not the weight.

Versatile Uses of Dried Fruits

Dried fruits can be enjoyed just like fresh fruits. They are particularly popular in homemade muesli, mixed with oats or whole grains, nuts, and your choice of freeze-dried fruits for a nutritious breakfast. Due to their natural sweetness, YallaYum dried fruits are excellent substitutes for sugar-laden muesli, yoghurts, and desserts.

Besides being a breakfast staple, YallaYum dried fruits are perfect snacks throughout the day, offering a healthier alternative to chocolates or sugary candies. All our products are certified organic, free from artificial additives, making them ideal healthy treats for kids.
