FRESH fruit giant Dole has launched its first range of snacks, called Live Right. Based on dried fruit, nuts, seeds and rice, it comes in on-the-go and store cupboard pack sizes.
The products have been analysed by charity Heart UK. Linda Main, dietetic adviser said: “We are confident in our decision to support Dole Live Right snacks which are packed full of nuts and rich in heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Replacing foods with large amounts of saturated fats with foods that are high in unsaturated fats has been shown to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.”
Nutritionist Amanda Hamilton added: “Most quick and convenient snacks lack nutrients, are too high in sugar and offer only a quick fix. These are as healthy as they are delicious.”
