Kanegrade showcases its range of fruit powders which can be used in a range of food applications, offering manufacturers the opportunity to create products with a long shelf life
Kanegrade is proud to produce a wide range of fruit powders. They are used in hundreds of applications including plant based foods, confectionery, sauces, protein mixes, fillings and many more. These are fine, normally highly soluble powders with long shelf life, making them ideal for use in food manufacturing.
Depending on the process suited to the fruit these powders may be either:
- Belt/roller/drum-dried (fruits are heated then milled)
- Spray-dried (juice is sprayed through a nozzle at high temperature to result in powder)
- Vacuum-dried (heated in vacuum, meaning lower temperature required for water evaporation)
- Freeze-dried (frozen in a vacuum chamber meaning water sublimates out)
How to choose?
Each fruit has a particular process from each of the above which suits it the most and is most commonly used. This decision is based on a blend of reasons including: feasibility of manufacture, cost, quality of final product required. To find out which process from above is used for the fruit powder you need, then please enquire.
Note: not all fruit powders are pure fruit solids, many have carriers so consist of a proportion of fruit solids along with a proportion of carrier. The carrier can have multiple roles including: maintaining shelf life, facilitating use in application, anti-caking. Carriers are processing aids and therefore do not have to be declared on labels (EU Law).
