Our Process

 

We are going to let you in on a secret… the secret of the delicious juiciness of Fruit Bliss is simply water! When we say "Made from the fruit, the whole fruit and nothing but the fruit", that’s exactly what we mean. Just along the way, the fruit gets a little steam bath to infuse some water. How simple is that?! Here’s how it works:

The fruit is picked at peak ripeness.

Fruit Bliss is very different from typical dried fruits. One thing you will notice is that all of our fruits are a natural dark color. This is what happens as the fruit oxidizes naturally drying in the sun. Most dried apricots are a bright orange color because they have added sulfur dioxide, a chemical color preserver.

Why you don’t want Sulfur Dioxide:

Sulfur Dioxide is often used in dried fruit as a preservative and to preserve its appealing bright color. Even though the FDA considers it safe to consume in small amounts, why would you want to? Sulfur dioxide is a toxic gas and can cause reactions such as breathing problems, skin rashes, upset stomach and an asthma attack in those that have even slight sensitivity.
