This type of raisin, similar to Sultanas, undergoes various stages of preparation. The only difference between Malayeri raisin and Sultana raisin is that Malayeri is lighter in color (hence the name Light Sultana).  It was originally produced in Malayer, and it takes its name from there. It should be noted that although Malayeri type is lighter in color, it contains less sugar and is not as sweet as Sultana.
