Our proprietary technology transforms natural fruit into high nutrient content, low-moisture fruit chews suited to a wide range of food product applications. Moisture content and water activity can pose significant challenges for food manufacturers seeking to add dried fruit pieces to food products. These include:
- In dry and powdery products such as breakfast cereals, the higher water activity of dried fruits can result in moisture migration.
- Dried fruit is susceptible to mold and microbial growth. The pH and water activity levels in Baobab Superfruit Snacks make them intrinsically safe with naturally low microbial activity.
- In chocolate panned products, variable fruit moisture levels can cause blooming.
Our 100% fruit, Lower Moisture Baobab Superfruit Snacks have been specifically formulated to deal with these problems. Not only will they deliver the soft texture experience and flavor burst of dried or fresh fruit in a wide range of snacking, nut & trail mix, chocolate and cereal applications, but they also provide a host of nutritional benefits.
Intermediate Moisture Baobab Superfruit Snacks for Frozen & Bakery
Adding dried fruit pieces to frozen or baked products can pose a significant challenge for food manufacturers. In frozen products, they can often become hard and tough to chew. In baked products, the high processing heat can either cause them to melt and lose their integrity within the product or harden through reduced moisture content.
Our next generation of Intermediate Moisture Baobab Superfruit Snacks have been specifically formulated to deal with these problems. Not only will they deliver the soft texture experience of dried or fresh fruit in a range of frozen and bakery applications, but they also provide a host of nutritional benefits.
Through our proprietary technology, we can raise the moisture level in our Intermediate Moisture Baobab Superfruit Snacks to 0.65-0.70 aW, guaranteeing the same texture and softness of our standard Lower Moisture Baobab Superfruit Snacks even when frozen or baked. Now the soft bite of dried or fresh fruit can be confidently delivered in a range of applications such as baked or frozen goods. In addition, our Intermediate Moisture Baobab Superfruit Snacks will not burn, bleed or caramelize.
