Based on product type, the sultana segment led the North America raisins market in 2019.Sultana raisins are made from large yellow-green sultana grapes and are particularly tart and soft.

These raisins are usually coated in an oil-based solution before drying to speed up the process.Therefore, they are often lighter in color than other raisins and currants.

These grapes are dark brown and take a longer time for drying—usually up to three weeks.They are also referred to as “natural” sultanas.

In the US, sultanas are referred to as sultana raisins or golden raisins. These grapes are treated with sulfur dioxide to retain the lighter color of the grape. Sultanas are considered healthy alternatives to candy as they have a sweet taste and provide a wide range of health benefits. The phenols present in sultana raisins have exhibited high levels of antioxidant activity. These antioxidants protect the body from free radicals, which may lead to cell damage and clogged arteries, or even some forms of cancers. Thus, sultana raisins are gaining immense momentum among health-conscious consumers.
