Campaign Story

Naughty Fruit is The Dehydrated (SUPER) Spiced RAW fruit snack made for the active life style. Full of vitamins, nutrients and natural enzymes; Naughty Fruit is a snack we are proud of and want to share “Eating Naughty” across the US. We use only the highest quality, ripest fruit and unique spice blends to bring an unforgettable experience to your mouth and body.

INTRODUCING SUPER SPICES/HERBS TO NAUGHTY FRUIT: Turmeric, Rosemary, Sage to name a few. Increasing health benefits tremendously. More to come...

In 2013 my father had undergone his 3rd back operation, replacing protruding and worn down lower back disks. 3 months prior, my mother left her job because of unfair wages. With the reality of medical bills and only having my mother’s limited income to rely on, the road ahead was looking pretty tough. I decided to come home and try to find a way to lessen their load and seek out my own peace of mind in the process. Giving back to my parents who had sacrificed and given me so much is one of the things that continues to motivate me.

We had begun to create a local following, selling Tamales in the farmers market in Jackson Wyoming and shaved ice at the Jackson Hole High School soccer fields. We had created our own opportunities and found hope once again. I began to play with the notion of dehydrating my own snacks since we had agreed on keeping a tight budget.

After doing a lot of online research and playing around with fruit and a bunch of different SPICES & HERBS, Naughty Fruit was born. With all of its health benefits, Naughty Fruit will assist in the battle over the high obesity rate which plagues the US by providing a healthy snack alternative.

Health Benefits:

Health Benefits of Dried Fruit Dried fruits offers some advantages over fresh fruits: a longer shelf life and portability. Dried Fruit is also highly nutritious. One piece of dried fruit contains about the same amount of nutrients as the fresh fruit, but condensed in a much smaller package. By weight, dried fruit contains up to 3.5 times the fiber, vitamins and minerals of fresh fruit. Therefore, one serving can provide a large percentage of the daily recommended intake of many vitamins and minerals, such as folate.

1. Dried fruits also contains more fiber than the same-sized serving of their fresh counterparts. Fiber helps keep your digestive system running smoothly. Dried apricots, for example, contain 6.5 grams per cup, while fresh apricots contain just 3.1 grams. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, it helps prevent obesity, heart disease and some forms of cancer.

2. Some dried fruits are a good source of certain antioxidants, according to a 2005 study in the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition.” Phenols, a type of antioxidant, are more abundant in dried fruits than in some fresh fruits, leading researchers to advise that more dried fruits be included in the American diet. Plant polyphenols have been found to fight heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer and degenerative diseases of the brain, according to the November-December 2009 issue of “Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity.” They also are associated with health benefits such as improved blood flow, better digestive health, decreased oxidative damage and reduced risk of many diseases.

3. Because most of the water is extracted from dried fruits, their nutrients are condensed into a small package. Dried fruits like apricots, raisins, prunes and figs contain high amounts of beta carotene, vitamin E, niacin, iron, magnesium, potassium and calcium, reports the European Food Information Council.

4. Several studies have shown that people who eat dried fruit tend to weigh less and ingest more nutrients compared to individuals not eating dried fruit. Not all dried fruit is created equally though. Added sugars, and problematic preservatives & processing practices can quickly offset any nutritional benefits dried fruits provide. It is important to avoid dried fruits with added sugars and preservatives. In conclusion, dried fruit have many health benefits. They are delicious and sweet and can be a substitute for candy for both children and adults.
