USA: Ives Health Bears Fruit With Vegi Bears
Vegi Bears®, a product offered by Ives Health Company (OTCBB:IVEH), demonstrates the potential benefits of nutritional snack food products for a new generation. "My kids and I will finally eat our fruits and vegetables," said Perry Ives, VP of Marketing. "Five ounces of Vegi Bears® packs the powerful equivalents of: 10 apples, 2 cups of broccoli, 116 cups of cabbage, 73 cups of brussels sprouts, 0.5 cups of carrots, 56 cloves of garlic, 0.5 cups of kale, 0.5 cups of green onion, 2 papayas, 22 cups of pineapple, 2 tomatoes, 1 cup of turnips and 55 cups of spinach."

Dr. Jack Watkins, Vice President of Ives Formulation Co., developed the first phytonutrient product for children in the form of the Vegi Bear®. "Through a revolutionary process, we flash dry whole fruits and vegetables, then extract the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are so useful for good nutrition," said Dr. Watkins.
