Product Description

Fruit cocktail is a delicious and healthy alternative to candy and other sweets. It is a combination of fruits, fresh or preserved, that are sliced into small, bite-size pieces. While the term cocktail usually refers to an alcoholic mixed drink, in this case, the term refers to a food served as a first-course appetizer, like a salad.
Canned fruit cocktail is the surprise ingredient in our moist and melt-in-your mouth Fruit Cocktail.

As the definition, a fruit cocktail may consist of any mixture of fruits one desires. Some government agencies, however, require manufactured canned fruit cocktail to contain specific fruits. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) stipulates that the dish must contain 25 to 45 percent pears and 30 to 50 percent peaches, making up the largest portions of the fruit cup. Six to 16 percent should be diced pineapple, six to 20 percent of the cocktail must be any type of seedless grape, and very few halved cherries round out the mixture. Many canned varieties throughout the world contain similar fruits in like amounts.

If you're on a diet plan and are counting fat calories, consider adding fruit cups with water or juice. The natural juices of the fruit add essential nutrients instead of unhealthy fat and carbs. Fruit cocktail is great for diet plans and makes an excellent snack choice.

The calories in a can of fruit cocktail varies with the size. A small can typically ranges between 40 to 60 calories per serving. Water and juice are healthier and better for you. Syrup may be light or heavy and changes the calorie content drastically. If it's a light brand, then the calories are a lot lower. It has a great deal of sugar, corn starches and preservatives that change the dietary content. Larger range between 76 to 260 calories. The difference in calories depends on whether or not the fruit is canned in water, syrup or juice. It's suggested to eat this brand in moderation or not at all.

Fresh fruit cocktail can be made fairly simply at home by cutting up any type of fruit and serving it with or without syrup. If one wishes to preserve the dish and store it in cans or jars, however, care must be taken in the way the fruit is prepared. An ice bath may be prepared first by readying a bowl of crushed ice; water and ascorbic acid may also be used.
