Are there peanuts or tree nuts in your products?
SunRype juices and fruit snacks do not contain peanuts or tree nuts. If you, or someone you’re caring for has known allergies, we recommend always reading the list of ingredients before consuming any product. The ingredient statement on the package provides the most accurate and up to date information about the product.
Do your products contain any animal-sourced ingredients?
Our products do not contain any animal-sourced ingredients.
Do your products contain artificial flavors or colors?
We're proud to say that we add no artificial colors and no artificial flavors to the great taste of SunRype. We don't use these additives in any of our products so that you can always feel good about serving SunRype to your family.
Do your products contain preservatives?
No! We don't use preservatives in SunRype products.
Does SunRype add nutrients to products? If you do, why?
Yes, we do. Why? Because many nutrients, like the Vitamin C we add to our juices, are good for your body. A lot of the goodness in our products comes naturally from fruits and vegetables, but we also add extra nutrients that are key to the growth and maintenance of healthy bodies.
How can I better understand nutrition labels?
Reading labels shouldn't require a science degree. The nutrition labeling on all packaging makes it easier to understand the nutrient content of foods we eat. You can visit the FDA for more information. Please contact us with any questions.
Is there gluten in your juices or fruit snacks?
SunRype 100% juices and 100% fruit snacks do not contain gluten ingredients. If you, or someone you’re caring for has known allergies, we recommend always reading the list of ingredients before consuming any product. The ingredient statement on the package provides the most accurate and up to date information about the product.
My kids love SunRype juices. Can they actually drink too much juice in a day?
Juice should be consumed in moderation as part of a healthy, balanced diet, along with an active lifestyle. Juice should not replace milk especially for small children.
Everyone should eat a variety of fruits and vegetables every day, as recommended in USDA ChooseMyPlate.gov. For more information on foods and nutrition for your family, we always recommend you talk to your local dietician or healthcare professional
What about allergens in your products?
We’re committed to making sure you have access to information you need to make informed decisions about our food & beverage products. That’s why we ensure that any of the top nine allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, sulphites, fish and shellfish) would be clearly listed on our product labels. If you, or someone you’re caring for has known allergies, we recommend always reading the list of ingredients before consuming any product. The ingredient statement on the package provides the most accurate and up to date information about that product. You can also find complete ingredient information on the product section of our site.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants help protect our body's cells from damage, which ultimately helps us live healthier, more active lives. Naturally occurring processes like digestion and physical activity, as well as exposure to such things as pollution, chemicals, smoke and radiation from the sun, cause the formation of 'free radicals' within our bodies. These free radicals damage body tissue through a process known as oxidation. When we consume foods high in antioxidants, they work to prevent free radicals from damaging cells in our body. Apples and apple-based products contain vitamin C and several flavonoids, which act as antioxidants.
What is the difference between concentrate and not from concentrate?
Our 100% Not From Concentrate Apple Juice is a "not from concentrate product". It’s our signature fresh pressed apple juice made with apples that are grown in North America. These apples are sourced from the Pacific Northwest including the Okanagan Valley region of Kelowna, BC and the Yakima Valley region of Washington State.
We also manufacture juices that contain juices from concentrate. The concentration process involves heating the juice to evaporate some of the water contained in the juice, while still maintaining the taste. Removing the water makes the concentrate easier and more cost efficient to transport. Then, in the juice manufacturing process, water is added back to create a premium quality product.
What is the source of sugar in your 100% juices and 100% fruit snacks?
All of our premium 100% juices and 100% fruit snacks have no added sugar. All fruits and vegetables contain naturally occurring sugars. So when you enjoy the sweet, refreshing taste of our SunRype 100% fruit snacks and juices, the only sugars you get are the ones that were already there.
Packaging & Storage Questions
Can I freeze your juice containers?
We don’t recommend freezing and thawing of any SunRype juice containers. The cartons are not designed to be frozen and could leak.
How long can I store an opened container of juice in the refrigerator?
SunRype products do not contain preservatives and require refrigeration after opening. To ensure the best possible taste and freshness, the juice should be consumed within a 7-10 day period.
Is it safe to consume out-dated products?
To ensure you enjoy optimum taste and freshness, we recommend that products be consumed before the best before date on the package.
Is SunRype packaging recyclable?
SunRype packaging is recyclable where facilities are available. Keep in mind that each province may have slightly differing guidelines and we would encourage you to check with your municipality for details.
Is there BPA in your plastic containers?
Our products are safe for you and your family. The controversial chemical Bisphenol-A (BPA) is not used as either a raw material source or an additive in the production of any of our plastic containers. A plastic bottle marked with the #7 does not mean it contains BPA. The number simply helps consumers and the recycling industry in the container sorting process.

Our products are distributed through grocery retail chains throughout the USA. For a list of retailers near you try out our product locator. If you cannot locate a retailer near you or if you would prefer to order online we do sell through Amazon.com.
