The Froose Difference

Your child’s favorite flavor of Froose fruit snacks might be peach, but have you ever wondered how Froose compares to an actual peach? Our formula is unique within the food industry — so unique that mom-inventor Denise Devine filed 19 patents over the decades-long process of perfecting Froose products. Froose Nutritional Brands uses the natural sugar-to-fiber ratios found in fresh fruit as a model for our whole food-derived products. Froose® fruit snacks are healthy for kids because we balance carefully selected natural sugar sources with essential dietary fiber from gluten-free whole grains. In fact, Froose fruit snacks contain more dietary fiber than equivalent serving sizes of most fruits!

Percent Daily Value

In the table above, you can see that Froose fruit snacks boast sugar and dietary fiber content percentages similar to those found in fresh fruit — and a roughly equivalent percentage of the total daily recommended value of dietary fiber — but in a much smaller serving size. Froose  products contain the same nutritional elements as whole foods but in a higher concentration because they are designed to complement a healthy diet. Froose is not designed to replace fresh whole foods; instead, the supplemental nutrients in Froose products bridge nutritional gaps during the day whenever whole foods are not available.

Sugar-to-Fiber Ratio

Froose Nutritional Brands chooses our sugar sources very carefully in order to create our fun and nutritionally beneficially version of the popular fruit snacks kids love. The essential whole grain fiber enriching each serving of Froose fruit snacks tempers its sugar content during the digestive process, resulting in a lower overall glycemic index. By incorporating gluten-free whole grains, fruits, and vegetables to achieve a balance between ingredients, Froose reduces the body‘s glycemic response and eases healthy digestion of the fruit snacks’ natural sugar sources. Complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber extracted from these whole foods energize children while slowing the uptake of sugar into the blood stream, helping kids avoid an unhealthy sugar spike.

The Science of Snacking

To the left are nutrition facts for Froose fruit snacks and some of the whole fruits that inspire our fruit snack flavors. For the sake of comparative simplicity, the amounts listed are for 1 ounce, or 28 grams, so that each fruit can be compared more directly with a single 26-gram serving of Froose fruit snacks. A standard serving of fruit is 1 cup (approximately 130-160 grams depending on the fruit), so the amounts listed for fruits should be multiplied by 5 or 6 to represent a full serving of fruit. Because Froose ® products are designed as supplements to whole foods, not as replacements, the concentration of nutrients in our products is higher than in fresh fruits.

Notice that Froose fruit snacks are a great source of dietary fiber and a fantastic source of Vitamin C!
