Because ClearGuard packaging has exceptionally low oxygen and water vapor transmission rates to protect the food inside and preserve its shelf-life, it provides a transparent alternative to aluminum foil or metalized films - an important differentiator at a time when nearly fifty percent of consumers would choose one product over another simply because they can see the product inside its packaging. The ClearGuard liquid pouch has been proven to meet or exceed barrier and shelf-life requirements for a variety of growing product categories, and it can stand up to the demands of the retort process, which involves high pressure and high temperatures.Tree Top's new, clear pouches come in six flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Strawberry, Mango, Tropical and Mixed Berry. Consumers can now find the clear apple sauce pouches in either 12- or four-count boxes in retail stores throughout the western United States. The variety is also available in the popular 3.2 oz. pouch at several restaurant chains including Arby's, Shari's, Sonic Drive-In and even in the air when traveling on Alaska Airlines.
