“My wife, Nalini, swears there is no raisin that can compare to the Hunza raisin. She compares them to candy, they are so sweet and delicious. This is her favorite raisin from India, and our family is also excited to share it with you.”
~ Sandeep, Co-Owner and Co-Founder 

These golden raisins can be refrigerated or frozen to maintain freshness.

All Raisins Are NOT Created Equal.

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. 

The majority of raisins in the US come from commercially grown 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.

Hop on a plane to travel the world and a different story emerges.

Outside of the US, most countries differentiate between dark-colored raisins, simply called "raisins," and golden raisins which are called "sultanas." Raisins are classified by the variety of grape being cultivated and how it is processed. Sultanas, like their darker counterpart, come from various types of grapes, some seedless, some not, including Thompson, Sultana and Monukka grapes.

It can get a little confusing!

What Are Hunza Raisins?

Hunza raisins are a wonderful example of gorgeous, naturally golden raisins that come from more than one variety of grape. They are called "Hunza" because they were originally grown exclusively in the Hunza Valley of Pakistan before their production spread.

At Pure Indian Foods, we’ve selected Hunza raisins that come from sundried 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 golden raisin with a beautiful, pale green hue.

Our Hunza Raisins are incredibly versatile! They are non-GMO, raw, gluten free with NO added sulfites, sugars, or oil. These naturally golden raisins 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.
