Process: Our fruit powders are selected from a variety of fresh fruits. They are washed thoroughly and then followed by a visual inspection for bruises and other defects. The best fruits are then pulped, standardized, concentrated and spray dried. Pulp concentration and spray drying is carried out at low temperatures to retain color, flavor and active ingredients. Our fruit powders contain no food grade matrix such as maltodextrin to keep them flowable. They are packed first in a plastic bag and then sealed in a metalized bag to further protect them for light and air.
Description: The powders are off-white, retaining the color of the actual fruit and contain no chemical preservatives.
