Sultanas are a dried white, seedless, sultana grape. They are cultivated in many parts of the world with South Africa being a significant producer. They are high in fiber and natural sugars and, although not as sweet raisins, they can be eaten raw as a snack, added to salads, meals or baking.
Nutritional Benefits Of Sultanas
Sultanas, like most dried grapes, contain more than 70% sugar, mainly fructose and glucose, with the remaining nutrients consisting of mostly fiber and protein. Dried grapes are a great unprocessed sweetener to add to a dish, dessert or baking but are high GI and therefore should be avoided by diabetics or those with insulin resistance.
