LOS ANGELES —Â Natierra, the natural foods company best known for pioneering Himalayan Pink Salt and Goji Berries under its Himalania line, is excited to announce the introduction of a new line of organic, dark chocolate covered freeze-dried fruit slices. This indulgent, snackable treat uses 55% cacao dark chocolate sustainably sourced from the rainforests of the Amazon and organic fruit.
We begin with USDA certified organic fruit, grown and harvested by hand to ensure the highest quality raw fruits and to respect the environment. Rather than processing the fruit into a concentrate or candy to cover in chocolate, whole slices of fruit are freeze-dried, a process inspired by an ancient Incan technique for preserving food.
The freeze-drying process removes 99% of the water from the fruit, extending the life of the fruit while adding a crunch that makes this snack absolutely irresistible. Freeze-drying also retains the color, shape, flavor and nutrients of the fruit better than any other method of drying. This means that our freeze-dried fruit has much of the same fiber, vitamins and antioxidants that you would find in fresh fruit without any preservatives.
While our chocolate covered fruit slices make a delightful snack on their own, they are also a great topping for yogurt, oatmeal, smoothie bowls and ice cream as well as a sweet addition to trail mixes and cereals. Adults and kids alike will love receiving this treat in their lunches.
Each bag comes with a resealable top and has a suggested retail price of $4.99.
