There is definitely truth to the old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away!” Apples are a great source of dietary fiber, contain antioxidants, essential vitamins and nutrients, are fat–free and are low in calories.

Our apple chips have a shelf life of 12 months. However, when opened, the chips will begin to take on moisture (especially in humid conditions). We recommend consuming the chips within a few days of opening to maintain the maximum crunch. As they are so delicious, consuming our chips quickly should not be a problem for most of us.

Our apple chips are made in our facility in Elmira, Ontario, ten minutes north of our home farm and orchards in Waterloo.
