Schools in Oregon are getting turned on to our Water Packed Fruit! We’re proud to be one of the few canning companies around who offer their fruit canned in just water. No additives, no sugar, nothing but fruit and water. Why are people so concerned about sugar intake? This article excerpt might help clear that up:
Where that article is primarily examining Fructose, sugar seems to fall into that same category these days. So, with all the products out there at the supermarkets, what’s a concerned parent (and school districts!) to do? Finding sources of high nutritional value fruits without added sugar is certainly one part of that solution.
Our fruit comes straight off the tree, with all the natural sweetness of the season, gets prepared for going into cans (by cleaning with water, slicing, and/or halving the fruit), then we add only pure clean water to the cans from there and process as we’d normally do.
The end result?
Fruit that’s still as sweet as when it was picked without all the added sugar. The health benefits of fruit canned this way are comparable to fresh fruit, in fact!
