Date:6/8/2009

YUBA CITY, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Taste and nutrition have long been topics of discussion when making choices for your diet. With so much uncertainty about what products are healthy in the marketplace, Sunsweet Growers is proud to lead the way by delivering delicious, convenient and nutritious foods to help people lead healthier lives. The latest addition is the release of Sunsweet Antioxidant Blend, a delicious combination of dried cherries, plums, wild blueberries and cranberries in a convenient 5-ounce package - now making it easier to get the maximum health benefits out of a satisfying snacking choice or nutrient-packed ingredient.

Packed with vitamins and minerals, Sunsweet's Antioxidant Blend contains four of the highest scoring, oxygen-free radical fighting fruits on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) chart, as measured by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Brunswick Laboratories. The chart measures the antioxidant units in foods that work to prevent or slow the oxidative damage done by free radicals in the body.

According to the American Dietetic Association, oxidation, like rust on a car, can cause damage to cells and may contribute to aging. Eating foods naturally high in antioxidants may provide anti-aging properties, increase immune function and possibly decrease the risk of infection and cancer(1).

Consumer research shows more than 70 percent of us are aware of antioxidants and their health benefits. But what we may not know is how to easily incorporate these functional nutrients into our daily, fast-paced lives. Sunsweet's offering of delicious and nutritious products, like Antioxidant Blend, makes eating dried fruit a smart choice - anytime, anywhere. Some tasty serving suggestions include:

  • Combine Antioxidant Blend with raw almonds for powerful and satiating snack
  • Give bran muffins a powerful and flavorful punch by adding Antioxidant Blend
  • Add Antioxidant Blend in a mixed green or spinach salad for added flavor and nutrition
  • Start off the day by stirring Antioxidant Blend into hot oatmeal and benefit from the whole grains and fruit

"Functional foods are an important part of a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and physical activity," said Steve Harris, vice president of marketing at Sunsweet Growers. "Not only is Sunsweet's Antioxidant Blend great for a quick, convenient and healthy snack, these functional fruits can accent a tossed salad, enhance baked goods, or sweeten up any favorite recipe."

Sunsweet's Antioxidant Blend is now available in Dried Fruit or Produce sections at major retailers nationwide. Suggested retail price for Sunsweet Antioxidant Blend in a 5-ounce resealable bag is $3.99.
