Organic Superfruit Chews - Strawberry
About this Product: We've been told this is the health foodie's version of the old school "Gushers". Packed with real fruit puree, the flavor almost explodes in your mouth. There is no sugar or sweeteners added to this one, and since it's packed with nutrients and fiber, it's hard to even call these "candies". Raw baobab pulp is taken directly from the baobab trees and crushed and mixed with fruit pulp, creating nature's true candy! Naturally sweet, tangy, and chewy, these Superfruit chews are addictive...just be aware they have a lot of fiber, so if you eat to many you might end up skipping dinner!
Nutritional Bonus: The newest superfruit from Africa, baobab has double the antioxidants of acai and goji berries, and 6x that of blueberries and pomegranates. 6x more Vitamin C than oranges, 2x more calcium than milk and plenty of B vitamins, iron, phosphorous, antioxidants, and more magnesium and potassium than bananas.
Interesting Fact: The baobab used in these chews comes from rural communities in Southern Africa, who harvest the fruit by hand, using sustainable best-practice forestry techniques. The growing demand for baobab has created new income sources for the communities, and in addition has led to the protection of the local environment, as a high value is placed on these wild trees, to keep them growing plentifully. The importers of the baobab ensure fair wages for the farmers, and work to raise awareness in the local communities themselves of the nutritional benefits of this superfruit, and always reserve 30% of the harvest to remain for the locals.
