Fruit is a popular choice when it comes to canned food. Not only is it really versatile, and can be used within cooking and in puddings, but it makes a healthy, quick and easy snack, too.
Canned fruit, such as strawberries, apples and peaches, are usually found canned in their own juices and count towards your 5-A-DAY. They also give us some Vitamin C and an alternative to sugar-rich snacks and drinks, which only boost glucose levels temporarily.
Canned fruit is one of the most popular canned foods, with the amount sold since 2007 stretching almost four times around the world!
Amanda says: “Consumer’s tastes are changing, and whilst canned fruit has always been a popular choice, it is now being recognised for its health benefits.”
