Taking place in Frankfurt, Germany between from 30 November- 2 December, the trade fair is Europe’s leading annual event for stakeholders in the food ingredients industry, which welcomes more than 17,000 visitors and 700 exhibitors from across the sector.
During the show, Paradise Fruits’ new Health division will showcase its range of vitamin- infused Shapes described as being functional confectionery.
The recipes for such gelatine-free series contain a higher fruit content than many other similar products available on the market and can be fortified with vitamins and minerals, as well as other ingredients, such as caffeine, creatine, or extracts. The range is available in three categories, Vitamins/Minerals, Probiotics and Botanicals, as well as a variety of bespoke fruit and vegetable flavouring combinations.
Paradise Fruits Solutions will also take part in the event by demonstrating its new range of allergen-free, nut flavoured granulates and pastes alongside its popular selection of High Fibre Low Sugar products.
The new allergen-free nut flavoured granulates and high brix pastes are available in a variety of standard flavours including, Peanut, Peanut Caramel, Walnut, Hazelnut, Pecan, Pistachio, Almond and Peanut-Chocolate. The range has major advantages in that it offers a natural, authentic nut taste and aroma, but without the associated allergens.
Its Fruit First, High Fibre Low Sugar recipe is available as single or mixed fruit granulates, pastes, drops and shapes and provides less than 40% sugar (naturally occurring) than standard fruit ingredients and more than 40g of fibre per 100g.
Bodo Mittmann, Chief Sales Officer at Paradise Fruits Health and Solutions, said: “Products that provide nutritional benefits, without having to compromise on taste and texture and where possible that cater to special dietary requirements are proving popular with consumers. With our range of vitamin-infused Shapes and inclusions alongside our High Fibre and allergen-free granulates and pastes, we are well equipped to support manufacturers in developing new products that appeal to these health-conscious shoppers and we are looking forward to demonstrating this at FIE.”
