    Aren't bananas a better source of potassium? You will also benefit from getting more magnesium

    Raisins are great. Perfect time to eat them is post workout for a nice insulin spike and glycogen replenishment. I love raisins!

    Yeah, I had read the interesting facts bananas in this forum, but I prefer raisins.

    I found a website that raisins are supposed to contain quite a bit of anti-oxidants:
