There are many benefits when you have raisins as a snack. You might not think they are good for your oral health because they are so sticky and sweet tasting but the opposite is true. Research has found that oleanolic acid- a phytochemical in raisins- prevents cavity causing bacteria from sticking to surfaces. This ability enables it to fight bacteria in your mouth that can cause cavities and gum disease. This makes raisins a guilt-free snacking option.
