An Innovative Way to Enjoy Fruit with a Smaller Carbon Footprint
While everyone knows that it is important to eat fruit on a daily basis, many people do not enjoy eating fresh fruit or simply get tired of eating the same thing. Yogavive Chips intend to make fruit eating more enjoyable without losing any of the health benefits found in fresh fruit.
Yogavive chips are made from organic Fuji apples that are oven baked and then popped to give them the best possible texture. Unlike many competing brands, Yogavive chips are not cooked in oil, keeping them 100% fat free. The added flavors are also completely natural, organic, gluten free, vegan, kosher and halal. In addition, the chips use no added sugar.
The company name Yogavive is derived from yoga meaning union of mind and body through a natural balance and vive meaning life. Together this signifies leading a balanced and healthy life.
