PowderPure™, a subsidiary of parent company Columbia PhytoTechnology™, will reveal dried fruit and vegetable powders with the most complete nutrient and flavor retention at the upcoming SupplySide West food ingredient show in Las Vegas.
With little or no additives, PowderPure powders possess remarkable and unique traits—flavor, color, nutritional value and molecular structure nearly identical to the original fruits and vegetables. To add to their desirability and applicability across the food and beverage industry, PowderPure powders are certified organic and kosher.
With a progressive drying technique called infrared Rapid Zone Drying (RZD™)—which utilizes a specific wavelength of natural energy that targets moisture—PowderPure is energy efficient produces high yield and preserves the qualities of the fresh fruits and vegetables. The resulting nutrient-rich whole food is efficiently produced, eco-friendly and economical. In a recent study, strawberries were found to lose more than 12 percent of their Vitamin C content during the freeze drying process, whereas RZD retained 100 percent of the nutrient.
The powders’ characteristics—such as long shelf life, nutritional integrity and high flowability—make it a user-friendly alternative to freeze dried or spray dried powders. While other food drying methods can require days to complete, the RZD process takes only minutes.
“We provide high-quality, nutritionally-rich and flavorful food products, while also retaining a competitive price point,” said Mark Savarese, chief executive officer. “No better alternative exists for drying.”
