Sweet & Nutritious Fruits

It’s summertime!

The weather is warmer, days are longer and processed sweets are everywhere! Don’t be fooled by the cluster of refined fair foods and high-fructose sugar bombs. Keep some of Mother Nature’s sweetest treats by your side this season for a guilt free, delicious snacking experience!



Sunfood Turkish FigsNaturally sweet and sun-dried, Figs are a perfect addition to any palate this summer! These delicious little treats are a staff favorite at Sunfood headquarters; they disappear faster than candy! Turkish figs are exceptionally sweet, just two of them contain a whopping 10% of your daily RDA of calcium, a vital mineral which may assist in supporting strong bones. They also have an astounding 300 mg of potassium, which may help maintain healthy blood pressure in combination with a low sodium diet. Mission Figs are a rich, chewy dried fruit with tons of nutritional benefits! Besides their sweetness, Mission Figs also offer 12% of your daily RDA of fiber, which may help maintain digestive regularity.

Sunfood Red Flame Raisins

The Truth About Raisins

Do you hold the common belief that sugar causes cavities? This is only partially true! Processed foods with added sugars tend to be the problem. Our Red Flame Raisins, on the other hand, which are sticky and sweet, actually “contain antimicrobial phytochemicals capable of suppressing oral pathogens associated with caries [cavities] or periodontal diseases and thus benefit oral health.”1 Our plump raisins are organic and raw to ensure that these phytochemicals are not destroyed by heat. Verified by the Non-GMO Project, they are 100% pure with no added sugars or preservatives!

What a delight! I don't remember the last time my family has eaten raisins with seeds. After researching how the seedless ones are made, we had to say no to all things seedless, including raisins. Now we are finally able to reap all the benefits of a good old raisin - in its natural form.” – Kristya
