Certified-organic manuka honey powder
New from Synergy Production Laboratories of Utah is its certified organic and kosher Synergized Active 15+ Manuka Honey powder. The powder is made from the flowers of manuka trees, which have long been researched for their unique healing properties. Of all the honeys tested, only active manuka honey possesses a rare antibacterial/antiviral component, which accounts for a more than 100-fold increase in antibacterial potency, Synergy explains. This factor is so powerful, active manuka honey is classified as a Therapeutic Good in Australia and is the subject of multiple medical studies. Synergized active manuka honey powder contains the proven activity level of 15+ and is exclusively fresh freeze-dried at low temperatures in a vacuum to protect its vital enzymatic and beneficial components. It is effective in boosting immunity and providing sustained energy, as well as adding a mild, sweet flavour in formulations, the company says. It is ideal for powdered drink mixes, tablets, capsules and food bars.

White sorghum syrup extract for gluten-free foods
A new gluten-free substitute for malt extract has been made out of white sorghum syrup. Called BriesSweet White Sorghum Syrup, it was developed by Briess Malt & Ingredients in Wisconsin. The extract promotes browning in cereals, snack foods and baked goods, making it a good option for formulators trying to meet the growing demand for gluten-free foods, its maker says. The ingredient is enzymatically produced from the starchy heads of the grain, not the cane, of the white sorghum plant. It is rich in maltose and characterized by the same reducing sugars and amino acids as malt extract, which promote browning. It is available in two dextrose equivalents: 45DE High Maltose and 60DE, and is all natural, non-GMO and kosher certified.
