Fruit roll ups are every child’s (and adult’s) favorite fruit flavored snack. No wonder you love them so much: fruit rolls ups are super sweet and serve as an easy snack on the go.
You may even think that fruit rolls ups and fruit leather rolls are healthy snacks. It couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Did you know that the first ingredient of many popular fruit roll-ups is CORN SYRUP?
Yup, the evil corn syrup that is super processed, spikes your blood sugar, causes inflammation and leads to disease. Just think about it, do you really want corn syrup in your body? I bet not.
Aside from corn syrup, fruit roll-ups tend to contains fruit concentrate (instead of real fruits), artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, additives and preservatives. These are all things that lead to chronic inflammation, pain and illness.
If you think about it, there is nothing healthy about these fruit snacks.
Thankfully there are more and more natural alternatives out there that are just as delicious (if not more!), but are made only with fruits and perhaps some vegetables as well.
These organic, natural and healthy fruit leather rolls tend to be a bit pricey though. You may have to think twice before having them every day.
But what if you could make your own fruit leather rolls?
