HAVE WE GONE BANANAS AT ADVENTURE FOODS? YOU BET YOUR BERRIES! OCALA, Fla., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Adventure Foods, a division of Action Products International (NASDAQ: APII), a publicly owned company, has three exciting new products, freeze-dried whole strawberries, sliced bananas and all natural ice cream are now available to the public. All of the products can be eaten anywhere, anytime. All were designed for space travel with a long term shelf life and are 100 percent natural, not one drop of sodium or fat added. The newest product, bananas, which Dole calls, "nature's most perfect food," has sold more than any other fruit in the United States. Nutritionally, bananas are high in potassium, manganese, carotene, vitamin C and folate. A package of Adventure Foods bananas contains only 14 calories and no cholesterol. According to Robert Zumbahlen, Adventure Foods product developer, "The bananas taste 'out of this world' great! They don't go bad or mush." Adventure Foods is the only source for freeze-dried sliced bananas. The freeze-dried whole strawberries are high in vitamin C, potassium, fiber and contain no starch or cholesterol. According to the Florida Strawberry Association's recent release, cancer researchers praised strawberries for ellagic acid, which they claim reduces the risk of cancer. And you want to talk about calories? How does less than four calories per Adventure Foods package sound? Adventure Foods believes in keeping products simple, but the best. Besides being all natural, all of the food products are Kosher, and have no artificial additives or preservatives. The foods are currently found in museums, military bases, NASA space centers, Young Astronaut Program Chapters, visitor centers, nature centers, airport gift shops and the employee stores of many Fortune 500 companies. "Everywhere we put it, it sells," remarked Zumbahlen. By going back to basics, we have found the perfect snack. Adventure Foods is helping America eat right. Coming at the end of March, for the first time ever in history, will be brand new freeze-dried yogurt in two healthy flavors; strawberry/banana and mixed berries. In April, we will have freeze- dried apples and french fries. -0- 3/17/92 /NOTE TO EDITOR: For free food samples, fax request, along with media name, address and phone number to 904-687-4961/ /CONTACT: Elissa Kaplan of Action Products International, Inc., 904-687-2202/ (APII) CO: Adventure Foods ST: Florida IN: FOD SU:
