Raisins are obtained by drying grapes, either in the sun or in driers. This turns the grapes into golden, green or black dried fruit gems. They can vary in size. They have a wrinkled skin with chewy flesh. In the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and Canada, the raisins are mostly the dark colored raisin. The golden colored raisin are called sultana and the smaller black ones are called currant.
Squeeze and shake the package to see if the raisins are soft. If they rattle inside, it means that they are dried out. When buying raisins in bulk, select moist looking, clean fruit. Avoid buying raisins in bulk from uncovered bins.
Consuming Raisins may cause vomiting, diarrhoea and fever.(2)
