Date:2/17/2009

Loaded with Fiber, Vitamins and Anti-Oxidants, 'The Fruit That Crunches!(R)' Celebrates American Heart Month as the Delicious, Wholesome Snack Alternative

FISHERS, Ind., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- February is American Heart Month -- the time to draw attention to new and better ways to reduce the nation's leading cause of death. And with Americans continually on the go, finding convenient solutions for heart-healthy nutrition is more important than ever before.

Funky Monkey(TM) Snacks celebrates American Heart Month as a truly different snack alternative -- one that combines the taste and nutrition of fresh fruit with the crunch of your favorite snacks. Using an exclusive freeze-drying process, Funky Monkey Snacks turns 100% real fruit into crispy, bite-sized pieces that are nutritionally equivalent to their fresh counterpart. The result is a delicious choice that satisfies expert guidelines for heart-healthy eating.

Many medical and public health organizations tout fruit as critical for maintaining a strong, disease-free heart:

  • The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends 4 fruit servings per day (4 to 5 for men) of a variety of colors and types.
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration notes that "a heart-healthy diet is one that is high in fruits..."
  • The British Heart Foundation, Great Britain's counterpart to the AHA, notes that fruit "can help you keep your weight, cholesterol and blood pressure under control and prevent blood clots and fatty deposits building up in your arteries."
  • The Mayo Clinic states that "fruits are good sources of vitamins and minerals; they are low in calories and rich in dietary fiber...vegetables and fruits also contain substances found in plants that may help prevent cardiovascular disease."

"Funky Monkey Snacks are a hit with people looking for delicious snacks that are also crunchy and nutritious," said Matt Herzog, president of Funky Monkey Snacks. "Each of our one-ounce bags contains three servings of real fruit, with no added sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives. Best of all, unlike chips or other fatty snacks, Funky Monkey Snacks contribute to good heart and cardiovascular health."

Funky Monkey Snacks can be enjoyed guilt-free at home, work or school, or any time the munchies hit. The 110 calorie bags come in four varieties: Bananamon(R) (freeze-dried organic banana and organic cinnamon), Carnaval Mix(TM) (freeze-dried organic banana, organic pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins), Jivealime(R) (freeze-dried organic pineapple and organic lime juice), and Purple Funk(R) (freeze-dried organic banana and organic acai).

Acai, in addition to being one of the world's top "superfoods", contains heart-healthy plant sterols B-sitosterol and campesterol, and has been shown in health studies to assist heart health by lowering "bad" cholesterol and raising "good" cholesterol.
