Frequently Asked Questions

  • What types of dried fruit does Baker's Authority offer?

    • Baker's Authority offers a wide range of dried fruits including, but not limited to, dried apricots, dates, figs, raisins, cranberries, and prunes.
  • How is the dried fruit at Baker's Authority processed?

    • Our dried fruits are processed using traditional dehydration methods. They are thoroughly washed, and then the moisture is slowly extracted, either by sun-drying or using commercial dehydrators. This maintains the flavor while extending shelf life.
  • Are any sweeteners or preservatives added to Baker's Authority's dried fruit?

    • At Baker's Authority, we prioritize the health and satisfaction of our customers. The majority of our dried fruits are 100% natural with no added sweeteners or preservatives. However, some items may contain a minimal amount of added cane sugar or sulfur dioxide for color retention. Please check the product description for specific details.
  • How should I store my dried fruit?

    • To keep your dried fruit in the best possible condition, store it in a cool, dry place in an airtight container. This will prevent moisture and air from degrading the quality and flavor of the fruit. The fridge or a dark pantry is an excellent storage location.
  • Can I use dried fruit in baking?

    • Absolutely! Dried fruit is an excellent addition to many baking recipes. It can add texture, flavor, and natural sweetness to breads, muffins, cookies, granola bars, and more. Remember, as dried fruit is more concentrated in flavor and sugar than fresh, you may need to adjust your recipe accordingly.
  • What are the nutritional benefits of dried fruit?

    • Dried fruit retains many of the same nutritional benefits as fresh fruit, including a high content of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. However, it's important to note that dried fruit is more calorie-dense due to its reduced water content, so portion control is key.
  • Can I purchase Baker's Authority's dried fruit in bulk?

    • Yes, Baker's Authority offers bulk purchasing options for many of our dried fruit products. This is a great option for commercial bakers, restaurants, or anyone needing large quantities.
