Ingredient Selection Tips
- Mangoes though are considered to be one of the dirty dozen fruits, meaning its skin is capable of storing the pesticide residue. Same goes for the apricots. We suggest you stick to organic ones.
- You can choose dried apricots in the grocery store but if you can buy fresh ones from your local farmer, even better. It is also best if you can select the fruit that is fully ripen one as it keeps its sweet taste. Do not use the frozen or bottled ones as it probably contain sulfur dioxide commonly used as food preservative. This is reported to cause a lot of allergic reactions for babies. It is believed to contain phytochemicals against cancer. Choose the one with darker color yet balanced color over its skin.
- The more deep orange the carrot is, the better. Also, choose the one that has firm body and with not many “hairs” to ensure freshness.
