Not the Same as 100% Pure Pumpkin from Libby’s
I don’t know what they did, but the nutrient count is different. The regular pumpkin has 300% of daily requirements for Vitamin A, and 2% of Vitamin C and Calcium. The Pie Mix has only 90% of Vitamin A; and no measurable Vitamin C. Calcium remains the same.
Other differences are that there are over twice as many Carbs in the Pie Mix, and 2 grams less Fiber and 1 gram less Protein. Iron is the same in both products. There is also no Vitamin E in the Pie Mix.
In my opinion the Pie Mix is not a bad product, it’s just an inferior one. And while it’s not a big deal that I accidentally chose the wrong Libby’s product, I don’t intend to buy the Pie Mix again, and here’s why. I have a boy who is not a veggie and fruit fan. He will however eat pie and he likes Pumpkin Pie which is awesome because it can be chock-a-block full of Vitamin A, with a good dose of E and C and Calcium thrown in. And if I just have one opportunity to fill the Vitamin void, I want to stuff in as much nutrients as possible.
