Get Your Fruit?
Tropicana makes the claim on their web site that their Fruit Wise Strips and Bars will help you "get your daily servings of fruit" if you just eat their products.
According to Tropicana, their fruit strips deliver one serving of fruit, the bars two (they weigh twice as much).
But, the truth is, both are mostly apple puree concentrate and apple juice concentrate, with other purees and concentrates, depending on the flavor (Cherry, Raspberry, Strawberry, etc.).
Apple Puree Concentrate, Apple Juice Concentrate, Cherry Juice Concentrate, Apple Pomace, Citrus Pectin, Raspberry Puree Concentrate, Strawberry Puree Concentrate, Natural Flavor, Elderberry Juice Concentrate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Lemon Juice Concentrate.
Puree is less processed than juice, therefore Fruit Wise probably does deliver more of what is in real fruit than fruit juice does; however, it still doesn't come close to qualifying as fruit.
Real fruits and vegetables will fill you up without loading you down.
The Fruit Wise Strips and Bars squeeze their calories (70 in each 2/3 ounce strip and 140 in each 1-1/2 ounce bar) into very little food.
