At ProSweets 2020 in Cologne (2 to 5 February 2020, hall 10.1, booth D28/E29), Paradise Fruits by Jahncke will debut its latest range of freeze-dried Crunchy granulates. Developed by the company’s Freeze Dried division, Crunchy granulates are manufactured through a specially adapted freeze-drying process that allows customers the option of a one-component recipe made of 100 % fruit, or a combination with yogurt or additional carriers, the company notes.
The launch comes as specialty for chocolate and confectionery, functional or “better-for-you” snacks and baked goods that include natural ingredients, such as whole or cut fruits. The granulates are available in bespoke shapes and cut into sizes making them ideal for use in these applications. They are the natural choice for manufacturers looking for a lightweight, nutritious and delicious ingredient to add flavour, colour and texture. The pure fruit recipe retains many of the natural flavour and colour characteristics offered by fresh fruit, but in a format more suitable for snack and confectionery applications.
Flavour combinations in the Paradise Fruits Crunchy range include Strawberry & Basil, Raspberry & Thyme, Mango & Rosemary, Orange & Chilli, Mango & Matcha Tea and Strawberry & Tomato. Exotic blends with apricot, mango, banana and passionfruit and non-fruit flavours, including cappuccino and salted caramel, are also available.
