Sunsweet introduces new delicious blend of high antioxidant fruits


YUBA CITY, Calif. Sunsweet Growers has introduced Antioxidant Blend, a new snack that combines together four delicious dried fruits (cherries, plums, wild blueberries and cranberries) in a conveniently packaged 5-oz. pouch.

The recent addition to the Sunsweet line is filled with vitamins and minerals. According to the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity chart by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Brunswick Laboratories, the fruits used by Sunsweet are the four highest scoring, oxygen-free radial fighting fruits. Foods naturally high in antioxidants may help with anti-aging, increase immune function and possibly decrease the risk of infection and cancer, according to the American Dietetic Association.

"Functional foods are an important part of a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and physical activity," said Steve Harris, VP marketing at Sunsweet Growers. "Not only is Sunsweet's Antioxidant Blend great for a quick, convenient and healthy snack, these functional fruits can accent a tossed salad, enhance baked goods, or sweeten up any favorite recipe."

Sunsweet’s Antioxidant Blend is now available for $3.99 at all major retailers nationwide.
