The specialty of Bare Fruit is in its name: fruit with no preservatives, chemicals, or added sugar. These bake-dried organic mango slices are naturally sweet and tasty, but also cholesterol-free, low-sodium, and certified USDA organic.
Unlike many other preserved fruit snacks, these dried mangoes include no additives, allowing their natural flavor to shine. Vacuum-sealed, they have a shelf life of around a year, and thus make excellent travel food for health-conscious, on-the-go snackers. If health is a primary consideration, then this may be the ideal treat for you. The product is fat and cholesterol free, and mangoes, which have been called the “king of fruits”, have shown potential in decreasing the risk of colon cancer, preventing macular degeneration (thanks to the antioxidant zeaxanthin, which filters out harmful blue light rays), improving bone health, digestion, skin and hair.
Generally, a cup of diced mangoes delivers 100% of the daily requirement for vitamin C, 20% of folate, 35% of vitamin A, 10% of vitamin B-6, 8% of vitamin K and 8% of potassium. To boot, mangoes also contain calcium, iron, copper and beta-carotene, the last of which is also an antioxidant that has been shown to lower the risk of developing asthma or prostate cancer. The delicious dried fruit is vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and produced in a nut-free facility with no risk of cross-contamination.
