Fruit Bar with Flax and Chia Seeds

August 25, 2014 in What's New

Some foods are just good. Like ice cream. But, ice cream isn’t considered ‘good for you.’ Other foods may be good for your body, but they are not necessarily something you’d enjoy putting in your mouth. Trader Joe’s Fruit Bar with Flax and Chia Seeds possesses that rare combination of tastiness and healthfulness.

Our 100% Fruit Bar is made from fruit purees and juice concentrates, including apple, pear, elderberry, lemon, and strawberry. It has the flavor and aroma of strawberries, with just the right amount of tart. The texture is that of soft, dried fruit, with the light and delightful crunch of Flax and Chia seeds.

So, it tastes good. But, what makes this bar good for your body? The answer’s in the acid—Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA). Each bar contains 1000mg of ALA, which is an Omega-3 Fatty Acid. This compound is considered essential because our bodies require it for growth and development, and since we can’t produce it internally, we have to get it from our diet. Among other sources, Flax and Chia seeds deliver the goods!

The 1.3-ounce bar is the perfect size to stockpile for those moments when an unexpected snack attack hits. And, at $0.99 each, you can really stock a pile. Stop by your local Trader Joe’s for some Fruit Bars with Flax and Chia, and know that you’re doing something good for both your (taste) buds and your body.
