More fruit per serving
than a regular
"100% fruit juice" juice
A juice might be labeled as 100% apple juice and only
contain 11.5grams of apple per 100 grams of water
(according to FDA regulations) with our Capuli infused
water packs you can enjoy a fruit drink that has on average
32% more of what would be fresh fruit than regular “100% juices”!
With our infused water packs we commit to No Sulfites. Many of the commercially produced dry fruits include the FDA approved ingredient Sulfur Dioxide to increase shelf-lives. Some people, especially those with asthma can be affected by sulfide hypersensitivity. We are committed to NO artificial preservatives and believe that organic and natural is best.
and retained Vitamins
While fruits loose about 95% of their mass through dehydration according to the USDA there is only about a 5% nutrient loss incurred after dehydration affecting mostly Vitamin C and Vitamin A. At Capuli Club we use natural/ organic processes that can help retain higher levels of vitamin C.
This nutrient loss is minimal compared to the 40%-60% loss incurred by the process of freezing for food preservation.

Many argue that added sweeteners pose dangers to health which justify controlling them like alcohol. In fact many countries have chosen to move ahead in this direction and are begging to impose tariffs on sugars. The city of Seattle has been one of the leaders in this respect. But why impose a tax on a food item? In addition to causing unnecessary weight gain and increased risk of diabetes and heart disease sugar dampens the suppression of the hormone ghrelin, which signals hunger to the brain. It also interferes with the normal transport and signalling of the hormone leptin, which helps to produce the feeling of satiety. And it reduces dopamine signalling in the brain’s reward center, thereby decreasing the pleasure derived from food and compelling the individual to consume more.

Because fructose (The sugar coming from fruits) does not increase blood glucose and does not require insulin, individuals with diabetes can often tolerate it better than other sugars. In fact, studies show that small amounts of oral fructose may actually improve glycemic control in people with diabetes.
