Paradise Fruits by Jahncke, the natural ingredients supplier behind four of Europe’s most innovative fruit and vegetable processing businesses, launched a new range of Eastern- inspired products at Food Ingredients Europe 2019.
‘Taste of the East’ by Paradise Fruits Solutions takes its inspiration from Japan and meets a growing trend for Eastern flavours. The range is available in a variety of flavours including Mandarin & Yuzu, Lychee & Raspberry, Apple & Green Tea, Lime & Matcha Tea and Ginger & Plum, as well as bespoke combinations which can be developed to suit customer requirements.
Taste of the East is also offered in a number of formats including Paradise Fruits’ unique irregular cut granulates, standard granulates, fruit pastes, juice drops and standard and bespoke shapes; all suitable for a variety of applications from baked goods to chocolates and snacks.
Kurt Jahncke, CEO of Paradise Fruits, commented: “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. We created Taste of the East to provide food and drink manufacturers with a number of innovative solutions to meet this demand and get a head start in developing exciting new products for retailers to stock.”
FIE also saw Paradise Fruits Solutions showcase its new high fibre recipe, which provides less than 40% sugar (naturally occurring) than standard fruit ingredients and almost 40g of fibre per 100g. The recipe is available as fruit granulates, pastes, drops and shapes and is ideal for manufacturers looking to create products that respond to an increasing demand for functional high fibre snacks, cereals and baked goods.
Throughout the event, Paradise Fruit’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 additional carriers. The range delivers unique flavours and textures for applications such as cereal, snacking, baked goods and chocolate.
In addition, Paradise Fruits Frozen is aiming to delight the senses of visitors with unique and indulgent chocolate coated frozen fruits, created on site in a specially adapted kitchen, and Paradise Garden will showcase a variety of natural freeze-dried herbs, spices and vegetables.
Paradise Fruits is also inviting guests to take part in one-to-one product demonstrations and taste tests at the company’s Innovation Station. Presentations at the Station are tailored to each attendee and explore how Paradise Fruits can work with manufacturers to develop bespoke products to suit their requirements.
Kurt Jahncke CEO of Paradise Fruits, added: “Retailers are always looking for the next big thing to capture the imaginations of consumers. Our Innovation Station provides a great opportunity for developers to explore our products further and experience the variety of tastes and textures that they provide.”
