So I’ve been puttering along with my Fruitivia Friday’s feeling like everyone knew what a Fruitivia was. Much to my embarrassment I’ve missed the boat somewhere. So today we’ll define what Fruitivia is and set up our week long give away (inspired by the lovely Cooking Underwriter who is also hosting a Fruitivia contest and some awesome recipes!)! Then this weekend I’ll do an extra recipe blog to make up for missing a day. 🙂
Sooo…here’s the Fruitivia low down (if you just want the contest scroll on down to the bottom):
Fruitivia is an all-natural squeezable fruit pouch that combines the delicious goodness of fresh berries with a touch of stevia for sweetness and natural prebiotic fiber for digestive health and wellness. This is a fruit pouch which everyone in the family will enjoy, with strong enough flavors to appeal to kids and adults.
Berries, nature’s “Super Fruits”, contain amazing phytonutrients, including antioxidants, bioflavinoids, anthocyanins, vitamin C, elagitannins, ketones and fiber. Fruitivia packs all of that nutrition and flavor into a little pouch without adding sugar or artificial ingredients. Fruitivia has a low glycemic response and only 30 calories per pouch. It is also fortified with a unique prebiotic fiber that regulates digestive processes and helps with weight loss.
Flavors: Raspberry Lemonade, Triple Berry Fusion and Strawberry Daiquiri
Slimming Qualities: Eating two to three pouches of Fruitivia per day can help with weight loss because it reduces spikes in blood sugar and increases satiety.
Digestive Qualities: Fruitivia contains both soluble and insoluble fiber that stimulates healthy flora in the colon and aids in regularity, improves digestion including enhanced mineral absorption and increases the intrinsic strength of the immune system.
Convenience Qualities: Fruitivia comes in a convenient 1.5 oz single serving pouch that doesn’t have to be refrigerated, so it can be tossed into a purse, briefcase, back pack or sack lunch. It provides consumers with 100 percent of the RDA of vitamin C and 2/3 of a serving of fruit for only 30 calories. We like to say there are four fun ways to eat Fruitivia:
Mix into yogurt, smoothies or protein drinks
Spread on cheese, crackers or bagels
Squeeze and eat for a refreshing snack
Freeze for a slushy snack
Nutritional Facts and Ingredients:
Reb A – The hottest all-natural sweetener on the market. It is extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant and has a glycemic index of zero.

Fruitivia is a non GMO product and gluten free.
Fruitivia is just making its way onto store shelves but can be purchased online while we work on getting into a retailer in your area.
So there’s the marketing bit on it. From my personal experience Fruitivia is a great healthy snack and one which is helping me in my weight loss goals. It’s easy to reach for when I have the munchies, and I’m getting the flavors that it’s fun to eat, and fiber that keeps me full until it’s time for another meal. It’s not a silver bullet which will magically drain all the fat from you, but it certainly supports healthy weight loss and goals for a healthier body.
