FAQs

What is dried fruit?

Fresh fruit that is washed, peeled, sliced, and put into dehydrating ovens that remove all water and make it irresistibly crunchy.

Frubis uses what types of fruit?

Quality fruit fit for human consumption. We often use fruit that has low market value due to physical damage or exterior look that does not meet the requirements of commercial areas, the so-called “ugly fruit”. Poorly homogeneous pigmentation or dark spots at surface are examples of these damages. Please note that these features do not compromise the organoleptic features of our fruit in any way.

Does Frubis have sugar?

Only the following varieties have sugar: Frubis Strawberry, Frubis Strawberry with Chocolate (milk chocolate and dark chocolate) and Frubis Apple with Chocolate (milk chocolate and dark chocolate). Other products have sugar that is naturally present in fruit, i.e., fructose.

Does Frubis have dyes and preservatives?

The 100% dried fruit Frubis range has no food dyes or preservatives. The semi-dried range, named Soft Frubis, has preservatives due to its texture.

Is Frubis fried?

No, Frubis is not fried.

Expiration dates before and after opening

The Frubis range can last 8 months, except for the chocolate range that can last 12 months. Because of the loss of crunchiness, this product should be consumed within 5 days after opening. We recommend that you keep this product in a fresh, dry place, protected from sunlight.

Quantity per package Vs. Empty package

Depends on product volume. Packages are slightly larger than they could be, because they need to get some air incorporated to protect products from mechanical damages during packaging and prevent pieces of fruit to get stuck when packages are welded. This air that is incorporate also protects package contents from daily handling, as these are fragile products. In short, using a slightly larger package with incorporated air keeps product integrity. Nonetheless, we are working in the sense of matching package size to their contents to mitigate that sense of empty package, without compromising product integrity. The new formats of our chocolate range products are a good example of our efforts.

Are nutrients kept?

Some vitamins, like B and E, remain almost intact. Minerals, like iron and magnesium, usually increase in their concentrations. Vitamin C is sensitive to heat which results in greater losses.

Our products are high in fibre and provide a sense of satiety.

Can pregnant women, diabetics and children eat Frubis?

Yes. They are safe, even for risk groups like pregnant women, provided there are no clinical contraindications stating otherwise. In case of doubt, you should always talk to your physician before you eat any food.
