Raisins are a form of food product that belongs to the category of dry fruits and they have been around for centuries. Sometimes, as items of trade in barter exchanges and mostly, as food consumption goods. However, raisins too have different types and forms and today, we will be discussing about the black variety of raisins.  

Black raisins are borne from black grapes. These grapes once ripe are removed from the vines and are washed for further processing. The processing of black raisins involves intense drying for a longer period of time. The black grapes are procured and spread out on a long tray and are left to dry out, under the sun’s natural light. In some cases, dehydrators are also used to dry the grape fruits to turn them into raisins.  

The common components of black raisins include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, polyphenols and fibers. This variety in the raisin farming sector has been found to be really healthy for the human body. These raisins help in cleansing the body from toxins and aid hair growth as well as provide a natural skin glow. Additionally, black raisin consumption helps in keeping chronic illnesses like high blood pressure and high cholesterol at bay. In fact, these snack pops are extremely easy to store and maintain for extended durations, and this quality has made them a consumer-favourite item in the dry fruit market in India and elsewhere.  

Black raisins are made from the seedless variety of Thompson Grapes, but they differ from the other raisin types. These are sugary to taste and are dried to retain their natural colour. However, other raisins like the golden ones are coated with sulphur dioxide in order to get a shiny smooth appearance. In India, these black raisins are produced in different regions, but the Western part of the country accounts for most of the production. States like Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have consistently ranked high on the list of black raisin manufacturers in India. The produce from these regions is said to be amongst the best in the world.
