Dried apricots retain their vitamin C and vitamin A contents, though they lose nutrients like potassium.
A 1 ounce serving of dried apricots (28 grams) contains 1009 international units (IU) of vitamin A, 0.3 mg of vitamin C and 325 mg of potassium, whereas a single apricot (35 grams) contains 674 IU vitamin A, 3.5 mg of vitamin C and 90.6 mg of potassium.
Apricots contain phytonutrients, including antioxidants such as polyphenols, flavonoids, and beta-carotene. These may protect your cells from damage.
