Fit Find | Fiordifrutta™ Organic Strawberries & Wild Strawberries Fruit Spread

Fiordifrutta Organic-Fruit-Spread-StrawberryHere’s the perfect companion to Nuttzo™ Seven Nut & Seed Butter! It’s Fiordifrutta™ Strawberries & Wild Strawberries Organic Fruit Spread made by Rigoni di Asiago®I have been on the lookout for a high quality strawberry fruit spread for over 25 years and finally found a winner!

Fruit spreads (a.k.a. lightly sweetened puréed fruits), are a healthier alternative to sugary sweet jams and jellies. Fiordifrutta™ makes a fruit spread that is truly “all natural”, simple and delicious. This one contains:

  • No high-fructose corn syrup
  • No sugar
  • No artificial sugar
  • No artificial flavors or colors
  • No preservatives

Ingredients: Strawberries*, apple juice*, wild strawberries*, pectin. *From organic farming. (Pectin is a soluble fiber found in plants and is used as a thickening agent in most jams and jellies.)

Compare some of the following ingredients in other brands. Notice the first and foremost ingredient:  

  • Welch’s Natural Strawberry Spread: Sugar, strawberries, fruit pectin, citric acid, red grape juice concentrate, natural flavor.
  • Whole Foods 365 Strawberry Fruit Spread: White grape juice concentrate, strawberries, fruit pectin.
  • Smucker’s Simply Fruit: Fruit syrup, strawberries, lemon juice concentrate, fruit pectin, red grape juice concentrate added for color, natural flavors.

Why Organic Is Important

  • It’s USDA certified organic.

NOTE: If you’re diabetic and watching your carbohydrate intake, this fruit spread contains only 7 g per 1 tablespoon compared to 13 g in most strawberry jams.
