A Delaware County company has introduced dried low-sodium vegetable and fruit snacks, replacing guilty pleasures with “healthy pleasures.” These new Phyto Active Foods products, including crunchy dehydrated broccoli, red bell pepper strips, grape tomatoes, beets, Brussels sprouts and blueberries, are sourced straight from American farms, with no additives.
Research shows that low-sodium diets may help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Developed at Phyto Active Foods’ Walton, New York facility, these vegetable and fruit snacks utilize a vacuum-assisted microwave drying process that removes the water and retains the food’s powerful nutrients, rich flavor and delightful crunch. A company spokesperson says the snacks were developed as a response to U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommends that everyone over the age of two limit salt intake to less than 2,300 mg/day.
