Abstract

Abstract Commercial imported Turkish dried apricots have about half the titratable acidity of the U.S. Blenheim apricots, are lower in total sugars, and contain twice as much calcium. They also have less than half the β-carotene than the U.S. fruit. The Turkish apricots have a light yellow appearance in contrast to the deep orange of the U.S. dried halves. The two fruits have similar amino acid profiles.
