The wrinklier it looks, the sweeter it tastes. Raisins (Kismish) are rich in vitamins and minerals, these are fat-free and cholesterol-free. Bangalore-based Nutritionist Dr. Anju Sood states, “Soaking the raisins and consuming them every day is a healthier alternative as opposed to eating them raw. Raisins are naturally sweet and high in sugar and calories, but they’re beneficial to our health when eaten in moderation. In fact, raisins can aid digestion, boost iron levels, and keep your bones strong.
