Apple is the major ingredient in Puria® Fruit pouches, and they are made with apples grown right here in New Zealand.  We think this is important because we can be sure that the apples are grown in soil and an environment that is free from any nasties unlike some other products on the market.

We add in a little Calcium, Zinc and Fibre to enhance the natural fruit and they are all available in a convenient, and portable ready to go pouch.

 

Puria® Fruit pouches can be added to school bags, or lunch boxes for a quick and easy fruit serve.

Yes, Puria® Fruit pouches are made with natural fruit ingredients, and it is completely normal that you may see some small fibres in the product. Rest assured that these are the fruit fibres from the Apple, Kiwifruit, Strawberry or Blueberries and is another indication that these come from real fruit that have undergone minimal processing.

Calcium is a mineral that is essential for the growth and development of children and adolescents as it promotes strong bones and teeth while also assisting in muscle activity, nerve functions and regulating blood pressure.

Typically, when parents think about their children’s health, they don’t think about their bones. Building healthy bones by adopting healthy nutritional and lifestyle habits in childhood is important.  Puria® Fruit pouches are enhanced with added calcium in a soluble form, and are a great alternative source of calcium in place of dairy products.

In an 80mL serve of Puria® Fruit, there is 150mg of Calcium or 19% Recommended Daily Intake (RDI)

In an 100mL serve of Milk – there is 120mg of Calcium or 15% RDI¹
