The natural ingredients supplier’s Taste of the East range takes its inspiration from Japan, matching flavours like Mandarin with Yuzu, Lychee with Raspberry, Apple with Green Tea, Lime with Matcha Tea and Ginger with Plum.
The range comes in a number of formats, including Paradise Fruits’ irregular cut and standard granulates, fruit pastes and juice drops, ready for incorporation in baked goods, snacks and cereals.
The company – which specialises in the design and delivery of high fruit, low water activity fruit ingredients – also produces bespoke flavour combinations and shapes tailored to suit customer requirements.
“There is a trend towards Eastern flavours for their widely renowned health benefits and this has been enhanced with the increasing popularity of Japan with tourists, especially in the run up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics,” said Kurt Jahncke, CEO of Paradise Fruits.
Paradise Fruit Solutions will also showcase its new high fibre recipe at FIE, which takes place in Paris, France, from December 3-5.
The formulation – designed to help manufactures capitalise on the demand for functional high fibre snacks, cereals and baked goods – provides almost 40g of fibre per 100g of product and less than 40% naturally occurring sugar than standard fruit ingredients.
The range is available as fruit granulates, pastes, drops and shapes.
The company’s Freeze-Dried division will also demonstrate its versatile Crunchy range, which is 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 yoghurt or other carriers.
As per its name, the range delivers unique textures and flavours for applications such as cereal, snacking, baked goods and chocolate.
Finally, Paradise Fruits Frozen will be creating chocolate-coated frozen fruits in a specially adapted kitchen onsite, and Paradise Garden will showcase a variety of natural freeze-dried herbs, spices and vegetables.
