Dried apricots are obtained by drying the fresh apricots with a special drying technique. In this drying process, the self contained in the apricot evaporates and thus the apricot becomes dry without the loss of any vitamins. So there are calcium, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin C and iron in dried apricots. A bowl of dried apricots contains 158 mg of vitamin A. These valuable vitamins and minerals in dried apricots allow our body to stay healthy and fight with many diseases.
