About Fruitrients Additive-Free ? Gluten Free ? Vegan Formula ? Organically Grown Fruitrients exotic fruit supplements use the best organically grown ingredients in the purest, most concentrated form possible. Their formulas are 100% Additive-Free for the highest quality fruit supplements available in the highest concentrations of ONLY the active ingredients...without any added sugar. Why pay for "sugar water"? Most of the fruit juice products today are little more than expensive, watered-down sugary drinks. In fact, almost all fruit juices are anywhere from 85-99% water. Furthermore, the taste of some exotic fruit ingredients is unfavorable, so they are only in a relatively low concentration in juice drinks, sometimes with sugar added to mask the flavor. In nature, the active nutritional ingredients in exotic fruits are not found in the "watery" portion of those fruits. The active nutrition is typically found in the pulp of a fruit, what Fruitrients exotic fruit supplements offer. Fruitrients/Ultra Laboratories is committed to creating only clean, additive-free products. Their dietary supplements are guaranteed to be free of corn, milk, soy, salt, sugar, wheat, yeast, artificial flavors or preservatives.
