Fresh flavour ingredients releases from Paradise Fruits at Food Matters Live
Natural ingredients specialist Paradise Fruits is to unveil a variety of new indulgent flavours to its Crunchy range at this year’s Food Matter Live virtual event.
The food sector showcase has been adapted from its former physical event to become a virtual experience taking place between 13-14 October, which was decided as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
For its part, Paradise Fruits’ Freeze Dried division’s latest product series builds on its existing fruit-based range, including salted caramel, cappuccino, caramel, toffee, honey, maple syrup and vanilla.
Crunchy inclusions, manufactured through a special process of freeze drying, are available in bespoke shapes and can be cut into sizes from 1mm to 10mm. The range can be tailored to suit the specific customer tastes and requirements including bespoke flavour combinations, strengths and 100% pure fruit mixes, as well as ‘out-of-the-box’ possibilities. All of which are ideal for use in chocolate, snacks, confectionery and baked goods, as well as other applications.
Richard Horsley, UK Sales Director for Paradise Fruits by Jahncke, comments: “Our R&D teams are continually focused on developing fruit ingredients that meet the latest trends and extend the appeal of food products for retailers and shoppers. Our new indulgent range of Crunchy inclusions are perfect for use in sweets and snacks, as they are natural, lower in sugar than traditional ingredients, functional, full of flavour and give consumers the opportunity to enjoy a luxury treat, but without feeling guilty afterwards.”
During the event, Paradise Fruits Freeze Dried will also showcase its innovative Smoothee Drops, a range of naturally healthy fruit-based snacks. The Drops are made using a gentle, low temperature production process which preserves the fruits’ natural goodness and can be supplied as single fruits or in combination with yoghurt, vegetables or added sugar. Increasing the products functionality and health benefits, the Drops can also be fortified with Vitamins, Omega-3 and Proteins.
In addition, Paradise Fruits Solutions will be demonstrating its high fibre recipe, which provides less than 40% sugar (naturally occurring) than standard fruit ingredients and almost 40g of fibre per 100g. The recipe is said to be suitable for manufacturers looking to create products that respond to an increasing demand for functional high fibre snacks, cereals and baked goods.
Attendees will also be given an exclusive, sneak peek at an innovative new range from Paradise Fruits Solutions, which has huge potential and can help manufacturers develop exciting new products suitable for consumers with specific allergies.
Richard Horsley adds: “Catering for special dietary needs and allergen intolerances is more important than ever. Our latest developments offer something completely new to meet this requirement and we’re looking forward to sharing exclusive details of this during Food Matters Live.”
