What are golden raisins? About the ingredient golden raisins. Including 292 recipes with golden raisins, nutrition data, and where to find it.
Raisins are dried grapes. They are produced in many regions of the world. Raisins may be eaten raw or used in cooking, baking and brewing.
Raisins are typically sun-dried, but may also be "water-dipped," or dehydrated**.
"Golden raisins" are made from Sultanas, treated with Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), and flame-dried to give them their characteristic color.
Raisins range from about 67% to 72% sugars by weight, most of which is fructose.
Raisins, like prunes and apricots, are also high in certain antioxidants. As with all dried fruits, raisins have a very low vitamin C content.
Raisins are sweet due to their high concentration of sugars. The sugar inside the fruit crystallizes if they are stored for a long period. This makes the dry raisins gritty, but does not affect their usability. The sugar grains dissolve when the raisins are swelled in (hot) water.
Golden raisins are usually found in the baking supplies section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
Golden raisins are a member of the Fruits and Fruit Juices USDA nutritional food group.
