Nutra introduced a new Freeze Dried Strawberry ingredient, adding to its Nutra Pura range of high quality freeze dried ingredients. Strawberry fruits have a low glycemic index and are a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and manganese. These fragrant fruits also contain folate, potassium, vitamin K, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, magnesium and essential omega-3 fatty acids.
NP Nutra’s new Freeze Dried Strawberry ingredient is a rose-speckled powder ready for use in juices, smoothie mixes, yogurts, ice creams, jellies, baked goods and confectionary. NP Nutra’s Freeze Dried Strawberry powder is a popular ingredient in blends featuring berries and stars in NP Nutra’s “Betta Berries Antioxidant Blend” that was recently launched at the 2012 Engredea trade show.
Delicious and juicy, strawberries are a rich source of phytonutrients, including ellagic acid and a complex range of flavonoids. Some of these flavonoids are in the form of anthocyanins, potent antioxidants which provide the strawberry with its characteristic ruby red color. These antioxidants may help promote cardiovascular health as well as help maintain normal cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Studies have also shown that the strawberry may be beneficial in promoting cognitive health and overall well-being.
NP Nutra’s Freeze Dried Strawberry Powder is made of 100 percent pure and natural strawberries with no carrier, preservatives, coloring or flavoring added. This high-quality product is also GMO free and Kosher certified. NP Nutra uses strawberries that are carefully freeze dried at the peak of ripeness to capture the complete enzyme, nutrition and flavour profile.
