Real dried fruit strips, sometimes called fruit leathers are made from real dried fruits and have little added sugar. Many mainstream dried fruit strips or roll-ups are often made from sugar or fruit juice concentrates and have little health benefits.

Fruit is the first listed ingredient in the fruit strip
There is little added sugar - aside from the natural sugars contained in the dried fruit.
The strips contain no fillers like complex carbohydrates and starches.
Contains no artificial flavours, preservatives or colouring
