Boesch Boden Spies launches new fruit innovations


18 Aug 2017 --- Hamburg-based ingredients specialist Bösch Boden Spies will present two innovations to its extensive range of natural fruit ingredients at Anuga in Cologne (October 7-11, 2017): wild, dried blueberries from Canada and goldenberry juice concentrate from the Andes.

Dried wild blueberries from Canada 
The dried fruits that Bösch Boden Spies is presenting for the first time at Anuga complements the ingredients expert’s range of wild blueberries from Canada, which already includes IQF blueberries, blueberry juice concentrate and blueberry puree.
The supplier and brand partner Oxford Frozen Foods is the world's largest producer of wild blueberries and is now one of the first producers to introduce a dried version. Wild blueberries contain less water than cultivated ones and, in their dried form, are roughly pea-sized. They are characterized by a complex, multifaceted flavor that is typical of wild fruit, with sweet and slightly savory components. Rich in antioxidants and fiber, they also contain vitamin C and A, as well as potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. 

So food producers can use dried wild blueberries to enhance not only the flavor of their baked goods, chocolates, muesli bars, fruit-nut mixes and more – but also their functionality.
Goldenberry juice concentrate
There’s been an addition to the goldenberry product family as well. Besides dried and frozen fruits, Bösch Boden Spies and its brand partner Terrafertil now offer a goldenberry juice concentrate. The sweet-and-sour taste of the fruit lends a fine, fresh note Click to Enlarge to juices and spritzer, for example.

The goldenberry juice concentrate, as well as all other goldenberry ingredients from the world market leader Terrafertil, are BRC- and HACCP-certified, kosher, and carry the Fairtrade mark.
Other highlights
Bösch Boden Spies will present additional product highlights and examples of the application of the field of dried fruits, nuts, and preserves at Anuga 2017.
