What is a Best By Date?

A Best By Date is NOT an expiration date. A Best By Date serves as a "suggestion" for when a product will be of best flavor or quality.  It is not a purchase or safety date. We sell products past their Best By date for a minimal discount. This offers you savings on a product which is still safe and useable for a long time. 

Best By Dates on USDA.gov

Use the Food Keeper App on FoodSafety.gov to determine approximately how soon you should consume something after Best By Date.

A raisin is a raisin, is a raisin, right? Maybe not so fast!

In the United States the term “raisin” refers to any dried grape other than a currant. A raisin can be either the common dark purple variety or the less common, but equally known golden raisin. Hop on a plane to travel the world and a different story emerges.

The majority of raisins in the US come from commercially grown (non-organic) Thompson green seedless grapes. When naturally dried or sun-dried, they automatically darken, taking on their familiar dark color. The vast majority of golden raisins in the US come from the same green Thompson grapes that are dried in industrial-size dehydrators and typically treated with sulfur dioxide to (unnaturally) preserve their color, texture and shelf-life - not exactly a healthy alternative, especially for those people who are allergic to sulfites.

Outside of the US, most countries differentiate between dark-colored raisins and golden raisins which are known as sultanas. Raisins are classified by the variety of grape being cultivated and how it is processed. Golden raisins, like their darker counterpart come from various types of grapes, some seedless, some not, including Thompson, Sultana and Monukka grapes. Hunza raisins are a wonderful example of gorgeous golden raisins that come from more than one variety of grape.

At Pure Indian Foods, we’ve selected Hunza raisins that come from sundried organic Sultana grapes. The grapes are naturally dried in the hot sun which deepens their flavor and concentrates their natural sugars and good nutrition. The result is a naturally amber-gold raisin with a beautiful, pale green hue.

Our Hunza Raisins are incredibly versatile! They are certified-organically grown, non-GMO, raw and gluten free with NO added sulfites, ever! They add sweet, rich, delicate, fruity flavor to a variety of favorite treats, both sweet and savory, and can be used in place of regular raisins, currants and other dried fruits in just about every recipe. Eat them alone as a delicious snack or try some of these ideas:

  • Add to favorite hot or cold cereals like oatmeal or overnight oats
  • Add to trail mix
  • Toss into leafy green salads – they’re delicious paired with bitter greens
  • Add to cooked grains like rice, couscous or quinoa, or cooked grain salads
  • Use them to sweeten muffins, cookies, cakes, scones, homemade raisin bread and bars
  • Add them to a spectacular cheese platter – delicious with creamy brie, roasted mixed nuts and a variety of crunchy crackers
  • Pair with vegetable or meat curries
  • Add them to pancakes and waffles
  • Stir into yogurt
  • Sprinkle over ice cream
  • Enjoy a snack with dark chocolate and peanut or almond butter
  • Turn them into delicately-delicious chutney
  • Bake them into your favorite granola recipe

Hi! I'm Sandeep.

I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.

My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.

We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
