Dried Cherry Data Inaccuracies

The Nutrition Facts for a sweetened, dried cherry product shows 0 mg potassium and 10 g fiber. 


Both amounts are way off. All fruits and vegetables contain a fair amount of potassium (there’s about 400 mg in a portion of raw cherries with the same calories as the ¼ cup serving of dried, sweetened sour cherries, and drying doesn’t reduce potassium), so potassium should be at least 300 mg. As for fiber, it should be half the amount stated or less. A similar-calorie portion of raw sour cherries has only about 4.5 g of fiber, and that’s without all the added sugar in the dried cherries taking up space and calories.
