Dried fruit makes an excellent snack on the go, however, you will want to avoid brands that process theirs with sulfur dioxide. They do this to keep the vibrant color of the fruit at the expense of depleting nutrients. Many people experience allergies associated with sulfur dioxide consumption (including headaches, stuffy nose, etc.) and a lot of conventional brands have to declare their products have sulfur dioxide as an ingredient because it isn't below the legal limit. Sounds bad to us. That is why we choose dried fruit snacks like these mango bites from NowFoods. Their dried fruit is really all-natural and is made using no preservatives and no added sugar.
