Dried Fruit Vs Fresh
A great example for calorie comparison is looking at dried fruit vs. fresh fruit. The reason dried fruit is higher in calories than fresh fruit is because it’s lost a large amount of water. Fresh fruit usually contains 70% of its weight from water, whereas dried fruit can lose up to 95% of its water. This means, per weight, dried fruit is a much more concentrated calorie source, meaning you are eating a lot more fruit in total. Understanding calories in this way can help you make small tweaks to your diet and help your health goals in a sustainable way.
