How do you know if it is raw?

It is very unlikely that it is but ask the company concerned what the drying temp is.
They will tell you.

Okay thanks! Id prob be better off drying it all myself.
I ask the company/owner of the shop if its not written on the label.
Is sundried always below 40°C (104°F)?that was always my guess that it is raw when its sundried

wow - i just had an "ah ha" moment. I don't own and have never used a dehydrator. I do buy dried fruits a lot (more then i should) like at trader joes (flattened bananas are THE most addicting thing in the world, i am convinced, lol) but its a great question - im sure dehydrators go higher then 115-20^. Yet another reason not to eat dried fruits. thanks!

I try to limit my dried fruit intake unless I dry it myself. And I only eat the dried fruits if I know for sure the brand I use is truly raw - which can be a pain to contact the companies but worth it like mentioned.

How about raisins? Drying them by yourself can take a long time so how do you buy them if i cant find any sundried raisins /:
