August 2021

If you’re looking for a way to incorporate plant-based ingredients into your food and beverage creations, freeze-dried fruits and vegetables can be ideal for inclusions and decorations.

In the EMEA market, convenience is important as well as offering a new flavor experience. Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables satisfy both of those needs and also address concerns about sugar reduction and artificial preservatives.

The versatility of freeze-dried fruits and vegetables makes it easier to innovate healthier foods that have ideal texture, outstanding taste and a cleaner label.

Here are some recipe ideas for the EMEA market:

1. Quick, healthy snack

The ideal snacks for today’s consumer are tasty, nutritious and easy to eat. Energy balls infused with cranberries, apricots and blackberries are a colorful way to provide a snack that is ideal for breakfast for in between meals.
