What is Dried Fruit?
Dried fruit is fresh fruit that has been dried naturally in the sun or in dehydration machines. Moisture is removed from the fresh fruit, which makes it more portable and convenient than fresh fruit. However, it does not remove the natural vitamins and antioxidants, making dried fruit as healthy and good for you as fresh fruit!

What is the proper way to store my dried fruit?
Mariani product should be resealed when not being used, and ideally stored at room temperature. Mariani products can also be refrigerated, but it’s not necessary to do so. The beauty of dried fruit is that it can withstand varying degrees of temperature and still taste great. Keep a bag in your car, backpack, locker or anywhere you need to grab a quick snack.
