Frequently asked questions
Dried cranberries typically need some added sugar to counterbalance the fruit’s natural bitterness and tartness – but we wanted to do things differently. The final product took a significant amount of innovation, since we did not want to replace sugar with aspartame, and when we began drying cranberries with no additional ingredients involved, the texture just wasn’t right.
Following a ton of experimentation, we landed on a product with just 2g of sugar per 40g serving thanks to two plant-based ingredients: tapioca dextrin fiber and dietary glycerin.
Tapioca dextrin fiber is a soluble vegetable fiber that helps preserve the cranberry’s natural round shape while giving it a soft, chewy texture. As a bonus, this fiber is considered to be a prebiotic.
Dietary glycerin is also plant-based: the one we use is derived from linseed oil (we use a specialized process to separate the fatty acids from the glycerol). Glycerine is a clear liquid that is odourless, colourless, and tastes slightly sweet. It is used to prevent our sugar-free cranberries from drying out over time and helps them maintain a soft texture.
We only use natural sweeteners in our products, namely apple juice and cane sugar.
Polyphenols are molecules that are synthesized by plants. They are found in many fruits and vegetables, including cranberries, and are a fantastic source of dietary antioxidants for us humans! Scientific studies have shown that consuming plant polyphenols over a long period of time may help protect against the development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, and neurodegenerative diseases.
These products are safe (and delicious) to consume for up to 12 to 24 months, depending on the fruit. To extend their shelf life as much as possible, we recommend storing them in a temperate, dry place (15℃ to 18℃).
