Health Benefits of Dried Cantaloupe
1) Antioxidant Powerhouse: Dried cantaloupe is a healthy snack that is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The antioxidants in a serving of dried cantaloupe helps the body neutralize free radicals that can damage healthy cells. Antioxidants are associated with the prevention of chronic conditions like heart disease and stroke. Dried cantaloupe is also rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid that does much more than just give the fruit its vibrant orange color.
2) Healthy Eyes and Skin: Beta-carotene converts to vitamin A in the body and is an important nutrient for skin and eye health. Consuming adequate levels of beta-carotene improves skin tone and texture, to help maintain a youthful glow. Research indicates that this carotenoid also protects the skin from sun damage by reducing the harmful effects of UV rays. Beta-carotene also helps prevent cataracts and reduces the risk for macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults.
3) Heart Health: Bananas aren’t the only good source of potassium! Dried cantaloupe is an excellent way to increase your intake of this essential mineral. Potassium regulates heartbeat, reduces high blood pressure, and may lower the risk for cardiovascular disease. It is especially important for keeping sodium levels in check. Dried cantaloupe is also high in B-complex vitamins, particularly folate. Also referred to as folic acid or vitamin B-12, folate reduces hardening of the arteries, a precursor to heart disease.
Ratings & Reviews
This is one of my favorite snacks of all time! So sweet and tasty! I used to get dried cantaloupe at Trader Joe's, but they stopped carrying it years ago, and I've not seen it anywhere since. So glad to find it at Nuts.com!Guinevere, Portland, OR
These are great, I buy them for my girlfriend who loves them so much that she sneaks an extra order of them into mine... I hope she doesn't mind if a few of them disappear before she receives them... Like the dried mango, they're basically like candy. These are packed with a ton of melony flavor, and taste more like fruit than any other dried fruit I've tasted.Daniel, Pittsburgh, PA
