At SunOpta Healthy Snacks, we manufacture 100% natural and organic fruit snacks, nutrition bars, grain and fruit based bars and granola bars. Our Private Label, Contract Manufacturing and Kettle Valley Dried Fruit Snacks are all-natural. They do not contain preservatives, added sugar, artificial colors or flavors.
We provide products that are healthy solutions to consuming the required daily fruit intake, while monitoring sugar intake. Our Healthy Snacks contain a half a cup of real fruit in every bar. They are allergy free, gluten free and Kosher certified. They taste great and appeal to people of all ages.
Kids love the real fruit flavor. Adults love the nutrition! That's the value of our products. Starting with a base of whole apples, we use natural purees and juices as well as natural extracts for flavor. Apple based fruit snacks have a nutrient/calorie ratio superior to many of the alternative snacks children consume. Fruit sugars like those found in apple products, serve as an immediate source of energy, and because apple products are delicious, they easily appeal to infants and children.
Suitable for Diabetics
None of our SunOpta Healthy Snacks are made with genetically modified fruit. A combination of simple and complex carbohydrates provides an excellent source of sustainable energy versus a quick sugar fix, making SunOpta Healthy Snacks perfect for all diabetics.
According to the meal planning guidelines published jointly by the American Dietetic Association and American Diabetes Association, one serving of a Kettle Valley Fruit Snacks 20 gram bar is equivalent to a half a cup of fruit.
Research studies from around the world are uncovering the wide array of phytonutrients contained in fruits and vegetables that make them an important part of a nutritious diet. These nutrients offer many benefits, not unlike the antioxidants we hear so much about. Our Kettle Valley Fruit Snacks may contain the same important phytonutrients as whole apples, such as quercetin and numerous other flavonoids.
In keeping with recent recommendations by health professionals to increase servings of fruits and vegetables and reduce dietary fat, apple products can make an important contribution to a well balanced diet.
