Bösch Boden Spies to present a worldwide first from cranberries

At the international food fair SIAL in Paris (21 to 25 October), the Hamburg ingredient specialist Bösch Boden Spies will present a worldwide first: Crunchy Cranberries Sweetened Dried Cranberries by the world’s leading cranberry producer Ocean Spray. Its distinctive feature: Thanks to a special process, Crunchy Cranberries stay crunchy for a particularly long time. This offers food manufacturers completely new application and innovation opportunities. The new fruit snack has been nominated for the “SIAL Innovation Award 2018.”

Crunchy fruit snacks are a trending product – they are highly popular with consumers worldwide, and their popularity continues to grow. At the same time, the “texture” trend continues unbroken. Practically every product innovation features the crunch factor. Now the cranberry specialist Ocean Spray has combined these two food trends and created a new product: Crunchy Cranberries. The new fruit ingredient combines the classic aroma and bright red of sweetened dried cranberries – and their functional advantages – with a lastingly crunchy texture. Crunchy Cranberries can be used in a wide range of applications, for example in chocolate coatings, toppings for yoghurt and salads, in cereals, or eaten as a crunchy ingredient in conventional rail-mixes, as well as an alternative to classic snacks such as potato chips.
