With their expanded organic and non-GMO selections and competitive prices, Aldi now offers health-minded shoppers one more option. Aldi is the grocery store that keeps prices down by trimming the frills. Now they are appealing to more health-conscious shoppers by offering more organic products.
Their Simply Nature foods are made without artificial colors, flavors or unnecessary enhancers. Examples from the Simply Nature line include organic wildflower honey and organic fat-free milk. A special brand, liveGfree, features gluten-free foods ranging from cereal to lasagna to cake mixes. Aldi’s Never Any! meats never contain any antibiotics, added hormones, or animal by-products. Although the website assures shoppers that Never Any! chickens are raised cage-free, it is strangely silent about the bacon.
Aldi’s produce includes organic, locally grown, seasonal products from which to choose. Buying produce in season ensures freshness resulting in better taste and nutrition. Each month Aldi offers seasonal picks. May’s seasonal pick is strawberries which provide plenty of antioxidants and fiber and can even help regulate blood sugar levels.
Health-conscious shoppers will also find a variety of healthy choices in beverages, dairy, cooler items, frozen foods, pantry items, and snacks and sweets in the Fit & Active line. The website features a weekly ad for the store nearest you so that customers can keep up with the best prices.
Shoppers who like Whole Foods may be pleasantly surprised by the changes at Aldi.
