Dried fruit and fresh fruit contain many of the same health benefits but differ slightly in vitamin and mineral content. Both dried and fresh fruits will supply you with antioxidants and fiber, which are beneficial for your health, however dried fruit has lost a small percentage of its vitamins during the dehydration process. When comparing dried and fresh fruit, it's best to use standard serving sizes, which are a 1/4 cup of dried fruit and 1 cup of fresh fruit.
