Products featuring real fruit appeal strongly to today’s health-conscious consumers, but signifi cant technical obstacles have previously limited the use of fruit-based ingredients in many products with a long shelf life. Dry product applications such as biscuits, baked goods, cereals and snacks have been especially problematic. Solutions based on URC® fruit ingredients from Taura Natural Ingredients sweep away these technical barriers and pave the way for a wide range of new products featuring fruit pieces, fl akes and pastes. These can be designed to deliver all the taste, colour and nutritional benefi ts of fruit inclusions in products with an ambient shelf life of at least 12 months.

Labeling horizons: PHO eradication, GMO delays, Post-Brexit potential

22 May 2018 --- In an ever-changing regulatory environment, it can be extremely difficult for suppliers and food manufacturers to keep up with the challenges of what can and can’t go on the label. In both the US and UK there are a number of labeling issues of concern right now. These include the impact that Brexit will have on food and beverage labels once Britain pulls out of the EU officially next March, to GMO labeling delays in the US, as well as America’s final determination regarding Partially Hydrogenated Oils (PHOs), i.e., removing trans fat from the supply chain.

IFF CEO on Frutarom buy: Access to a broader middle market minimizes supplier exposure

22 May 2018 --- Andreas Fibig, CEO of International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF), has identified the broad base of small and medium-sized customers as a key benefit in acquiring Frutarom in a “transformational move” for the company. A base of 30,000 customers from the legacy Frutarom business compared to just 3,000 for the much larger New York-headquartered company, could provide an opportunity to replicate IFF’s Tastepoint model that has proved to be successful in meeting the needs of small and medium businesses in the US since its inception last summer.

Fruit concepts with sugar-reducing benefits – Taura Natural Ingredients

Taura Natural Ingredients is launching a number of new products which have sugar-reducing benefits on its three “axes of innovation.” Taura considers itself the no. 1 worldwide in concentrated fruit and would like to bring fruit to where it has not been before. The first innovation is tastes from around the world. “We actually allow you have a journey around the world with different taste sensations,” says Peter Forceville. The second innovation is to do with more natural, clean labels with fewer ingredients, and the third is “Taura as a vehicle” – using Taura as a carrier for other products such as supplements.

New Range of Fruit Ingredients for Artisanal Users

Taura Natural Ingredients has launched a range of natural concentrated fruit pieces designed specifically for use by artisan chocolatiers, bakers and chefs. Marc Cautaerts, General Manager EMEA at Taura, said: “The bespoke solutions we create for most of our larger customers are not appropriate for artisan chocolate and bakery producers, so we have created Gourmet Series as an off-the-peg offer to meet their specific needs. It means all the benefits of our unique and high quality URC fruit ingredients – as well as our technical know-how – are now available for the first time in the craft chocolate and bakery market.” He continued: “Like all of our URC fruit ingredients, our new Gourmet Series pieces are made from real concentrated fruit and offer all the flavour, texture and goodness of fresh fruit. However, compared with fresh fruit they are much more convenient to use and also offer significant taste and texture benefits over dried and candied fruit. Their long shelf life means craft bakers, confectioners and chefs can now always have real fruit ingredients on hand when they need them.”
