CHILEAN FLAME RAISINS

£2.68£10.13

Pack Size: 300g / 2kg

Flame Raisins (also known as Chilean Flame Raisins or Red Raisins) come from the mountainous vineyards in Chile and are made from sun-drying red-skinned seedless grapes. They are typically rounder than standard Thompson Raisins and have a profoundly sweet taste, making them great for baking products such as cookies and bread.

Red Flame Grapes are the first to ripen giving them a much sweeter taste. We recommend utilising this sweet flavour in baked goods such as muffins, cookies and bread. These sweet treats can also be added to your early morning Muesli and match perfectly with Cinnamon!

Health Benefits
As well as being a delicious sweet treat, raisins are packed full of iron and antioxidants, adding positive nutrients to your diet. Research shows that raisins can reduce blood pressure and blood sugar which can lower the risk of heart disease. Grapes naturally have high levels of antioxidants which when dried preserve these qualities. These antioxidants can prevent cell damage as well can reduce conditions such as diabetes and cancer.

 

History / Origins

It is reported that grape vines originate from the Caucasus region as well as Western Asia where the cultivation of these sweet treats began around 6000-8000 years ago. It wasn't until 2000BCE before we saw the first mention of raisins in history, where it is suggested raisins were discovered by Ancient Persia or Egypt after grapes were accidentally left to dry in the sun.

Raisins were actually mentioned in the bible during the time of Moses (Numbers 6:3) when David was presented with "a hundred clusters of raisins' (Samuel 25:18). During Roman times raisins were given as prizes for sporting events. These days grapes are primarily used for creating wine and dried fruit. Its cultivation these days are spread throughout the globe, with the dominant producer's China, Europe and the United States.
