Summary Feedback
Fruit Forest Real Fruit Snack Strawberry is available at some Starbucks in India. It contains 48% apple juice concentrate,  41.5% apple puree concentrate, 4% strawberry pure, 2% cherry juice concentrate, 1.5% strawberry juice concentrate, gelling agent: pectin, natural flavoring, 1% citrus fiber, purple carrot juice concentrate.
Both these products claim to contain no sugar, gelatin, added colors or preservatives.  
We consider eating fresh whole fruit more healthy than having products like these processed fruit snacks made from fruit concentrates.
The amount of natural sugar in the strawberry variant is 71.6 gm per 100 gm pack and in the peach one it is 68.8 gm per 100 gm. This amount is too high and unsuitable for even the healthy to consume as most of the fiber in it stripped away, and has only 7.7 gm fiber in it.

The product is a high sugar product. We do not consider this wholesome.
Ingredients present in Fruit Forest Real Fruit Snack Peach/Strawberry which are a concern:
Sugar
Sugar
Sugar is a carbohydrate found naturally in a host of different foods from lactose in milk to the fructose in fruit and honey. In fact, we need some sugar in our diets to supply ready energy to fuel our muscles and keep our brains active. A high intake of sugar causes our blood sugar levels to shoot up, giving us that feel-good ‘high’ followed by a crashing slump which leaves us tired, irritable and craving more sugary foods. It’s a vicious cycle that may be contributing to our weight problems as well as health concerns like diabetes and heart disease.
