Raisins are made by drying grapes in the sun. Although some of the sugar in the grapes is caramelized in the process, nothing is added. Moreover, the only thing removed from the grapes is the water that evaporates during the drying and water contains no calories or nutrients. The fact that raisins contain more iron par calorie than grapes do is thus puzzling. Which one of the following if true most helps to explain why Raisins contain more iron per calorie than do grapes?
a. Since Grapes are bigger than Raisins, it takes several bunch of Grapes to provide same amount of iron as a handful of Raisins.
b. Caramelized sugar cannot be digested, so its calorie do not count towards the calorie contents of Raisins.
c. The body can absorb iron and other nutrients more quickly from Grapes because of relatively high water contents of Grapes.
d. Raisins, but not Grapes are available year round, so many people get a greater share of their yearly iron from Raisins than from Grapes.
e. Raisins are often eaten in combination with other iron containing foods, while Grapes are usually eaten themselves.
