KitoZymes Chitosan in nufruit by Incredible Food

Press Release

KitoZyme, a provider of animal-free chitosan, collaborated with the Boston-based company Incredible Foods to create a nufruit™, a low-calorie, fresh and natural real fruit bite without any of the big eight most common food allergens. Its size and shape make it fun to eat for everyone. Each nufruit™ serving has the vitamin C of an orange and the fiber of an apple, no artificial flavorings, colorings, or preservatives. Each nufruit™ snack tray has only 45 calories or less.

KitoZyme’s chitosan has the following features:

  • Film-forming
  • Safe and natural: 100% animal-free, allergen-friendly and gluten-free
  • Appropriate for use in Kosher, Halal and vegetarian products/diets.

nufruit™ is available in four flavors, including tropical orange, strawberry banana, mixed berry and sour apple. Ideal for lunch boxes and on-the-go snacking, each nufruit™ package contains five trays with seven nufruit™ bites per tray. A package of nufruit™ is priced at $3.99.

This innovation is currently in a commercialization test in 20 food stores in Boston, USA.
