A Fruit Snack consists of processed fruit which is then extruded, and formed into snacks. It can be deposited, freeze dried, or air dried. The typical fruit snacks, available to consumers all over the globe, are produced by combining fruit juices and fruit purees with colors and flavors. Additionally, they may contain other ingredients including starches, gelatin, sugar, and corn syrups. Typically they contain between 15-20% moisture to give the product the desirable soft, chewy texture.
