Consuming fruits and vegetables every day is growing in importance. However, not everyone realizes exactly how much we need to consume. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, we need one to two cups of fruit per day. When it comes to veggies, they recommend between one and three cups. This number can vary based on age, weight, and physical activity.
It can be hard to get the right amount of fruits and vegetables by just eating them plain. So, Balchem has formulated multiple products that include portions of the daily recommended serving amount of fruits and veggies. This helps consumers indulge while still making progress on their daily fruit and veggie goal. Being able to accomplish your daily healthy habit while still eating sorbet, enjoying a smoothie or cooling down with a popsicle makes healthy living a breeze!
Some of the products we have featured showcase our fruit and veggie capabilities.
