5 Ways to Add Natural Color, Flavor with Freeze-Dried Powders

July 2020

Today’s R&D formulators are challenged to innovate new products that meet consumers’ expectations for a simpler label while preserving taste and quality in the finished product.

Versatile and easy to blend, freeze-dried fruit and vegetable powders are ideal for adding natural flavors, vibrant colors, and nutrition to a variety of food and beverage applications, supporting clean label and better-for-you formulations.

With a wide range of fruit and vegetables to choose from – from seasonal berries to exotic citrus variations – the potential is limitless.
