Raisin’ energy levels for your next run with South African Raisins!
Looking for a deliciously light running snack? Searching for that mid-marathon boost? South African raisins are 100% naturally sundried, making them a ‘natural powerhouse’ and a concentrated source of energy to give you that much needed pick-me-up when you are running low on fuel. Powering your runs with natural sources is easier than ever with just a handful of raisins, counting as one of your 5 a day! With our competition, you could WIN a Fitbit Sense Advanced Smartwatch, worth £250, you can keep running and stay healthy for even longer!
South African raisins are an ideal food during longer runs because they’re low to medium GI, like a banana, meaning that as a carbohydrate they break down and release their energy slowly whilst running. They also make a sweet, satisfying, and healthy snack as opposed to sports gels, with no added sugars or colours.
Raisins are also incredibly versatile and can be added to a variety of different energy-boosting snacks. Why not try them in traybakes, granola bars, energy balls or even pasta, or mix them with nuts to keep your body supplied with energy, vitamin E and potassium?

South African raisins aren’t just packed with energy: they’re full of nutrients and antioxidants such as calcium, iron and are a source of fibre, aiding digestion, boosting iron levels, and keeping bones strong.
Being naturally sundried in the Western and Northern Cape regions, where there are exceptionally high levels of sunshine and water from the Orange and Olifants rivers, this area of South Africa produces the world’s highest quality raisins.
The Fitbit Sense, worth £250, is the advanced health smartwatch that helps you to tune in to your body with tools for stress management, heart health, SpO2, skin temperature and more. Stay well and keep running with this helpful gadget alongside a healthy, balanced diet.
