Q Can you have dried fruit on the raw diet?

A Yes, but in moderation, fresh fruit should be your mainstay. Things to remember concerning dried fruit are as follows:

1) Rehydrate the fruit for a few hours or overnight before eating. Otherwise dried fruit will rehydrate itself with water from your body which can lead to your dehydration. If it’s not possible to rehydrate because you’re hiking or something then try to consume it with water rich foods like celery or cucumbers.

2) Make sure the fruit is not treated with sulfates or other preservatives.

3) Dried fruit should be dried at or below approx. 108 degrees Fahrenheit to be considered a raw food.

4) Make sure to brush your teeth after eating dried fruit as it can stick to your teeth and cause problems.
