Our delicious Well-Being Range is made with natural, wholesome ingredients for the health conscious. The ingredients are mostly the type of foods you might find in your home pantry. They have been selected for their wholesome fit within the Well-Being category and also of course for their delicious flavours. There is no added refined cane sugar aside from a little from cranberries and the dark chocolate. Instead the sweetening comes from the dried fruits and a small amount of brown rice syrup, sometimes known as rice malt syrup. There is plenty of fibre in these slices. This mostly comes from the dried fruits and seeds as well as a natural chicory root ingredient.
The Health Stars algorithm provides an overall assessment of the key components of a packaged food (both positive and negative) and gives an “at a glance” rating. The energy, saturated fat, sugar and sodium content of food has much greater impact on the Health Star Rating than the positive nutrients. All foods contribute energy to the diet. Eating too much of any food (even a five star-rated food) will contribute excess energy. Health Star Ratings are a voluntary front-of-pack labelling system for packaged foods. They provide a quick easy way for shoppers to compare similar packaged foods and choose the healthier option. The more stars, the healthier the packaged food.
