Thrive has been all the rave the past few years, and I’ve tried Thrive, yes it tastes good, but that price tag? yikes! To be honest, I am trying to wright this is the most NON-BIASED was possible… that being said there are 3 things to consider when purchasing from Thrive. BUT, the biggest take a way I want you to know about thrive is to think of it like this…
Thrive Life is the “name brand” version of freeze dried food.
3 things to look at consider when purchasing from Thrive
1. Look at the ingredients
A lot of times Thrive boasts of “no added” ingredients. Which is fantastic right! Well, take a look at some of the other companies and they don’t have any added ingredients either. They also like to advertise as G-free or vegan. Well, being mainly fresh fruits and vegetables, that applies to most freeze dried products out there.
So, double check the ingredients when comparing freeze dried food to make sure there isn’t anything added. That’s one way you can tell the quality of freeze dried food.
2. Look at the serving size
This is one of the BIGGEST mistakes people make. They look at the number of servings and go with the best price for number of servings. And this works if every company used the same serving… which they don’t. And different products have different serving sizes. Purchasing a can which has 25 1/4 c servings is only 6.25 cups of product. VS a can which has 25 1/3 c servings has 8 1/3 c of product.
The weight when comparing prices. The weight of the can is one of the easiest ways to see how much food is in there. So when comparing costs, see what the best price is per once of food in the can. (They are really sneaky out there and I’ve wasted a couple hundred being fooled on this one).
There are a few things you’ll want to spend your time on to make sure you get the most bang for your buck, and Thrive typically isn’t one of them (sorry to say). If you are interested in more ways the freeze dried companies try to trick you read my post
