After being tested at NASA’s food lab, That’s it. bars
were cleared for launch on a cargo mission to the ISS
that took off in December.
According to company officials, That’s it. uses only
two ingredients—both of which are pure fruit—has
an 18-month, lab-verified shelf life, and is resistant
to temperature changes. Aboard the station are two
flavors, Apple + Apricot and Apple + Banana, providing a convenient way for the astronauts to intake daily
servings of real fruit.
According to NASA officials, astronauts get a certain
amount of discretionary cargo allocated for their
flight, where they can include non-standard food
items. NASA food lab scientists then perform a routine
check to see if any preservation steps need to be
taken or if the food is suitable for zero-g flight.
After being cleared, That’s it. bars were launched
into space accompanied by more than 7,000 pounds
of cargo, research equipment and other crew supplies.
“It’s exhilarating to think our product will actu-
Out of This World Fruit Bars
ally be in orbit, providing a daily serving of fruit to
an astronaut,” says Dr. Lior Lewensztain, founder of
That’s It., based in Los Angeles. “This is a tremendous
application of our vision to improve the quality of life
worldwide by making fruit and its benefits accessible
everywhere—now even in space.”
According to Lewensztain, That’s it. bars are gluten-
free, vegan, kosher, GMO-free and made without any
additives, preservatives, concentrates, purees, juices,
added sugars, corn syrup, artificial coloring or flavor-
ings. They also offer two servings of fruit in every bar.
In addition to being able to float in zero grav-
ity and seeing distant views of the Earth and
up-close views of the stars, the astronauts
aboard the International Space Station are
enjoying another real treat—they are able to
snack on That’s it. fruit bars.
