Description

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.
