Dansico now offers a demo kit called "Set the Juices Loose!" that features confectionery products with the added benefits of pure fruit juice, no added colors, no added acids, no preservatives, no high-intensity sweeteners, reduced calories, reduced sugar and a high level of fiber. The products include jellies, gummies, candies, hard candies and chewy beans.
Products containing "super fruit" juices such as acai, goji, pomegranate and yumberry or more familiar fruit juices such as cranberry, blueberry and raspberry offer high levels of antioxidants and other health-promoting properties, according to Danisco. The products in the juice kit also feature such Danisco ingredients as the reduced-calorie sweetener Lactitol, the soluble fiber Litesse polydextrose and the reduced-calorie sweetener xylitol.
