Salem, OR (PRWEB) November 09, 2015
Oregon Fruit Products LLC is bringing a hint of the exotic to its lineup of foodservice offerings. The company today announced a new Kiwi Fruit in Hand diced pourable fruit that adds the sweetness, aroma and texture of real fruit to beverages, cocktails, smoothies, desserts, sauces, savories, toppings, and breakfast applications.
A tangy-sweet fruit, Kiwi Fruit in Hand is best suited for applications that add a touch of tartness. Charley’s Grilled Subs has implemented Kiwi Fruit in Hand in their kiwi lemonade in over 450 stores, adding sweet tropical notes, a hint of bright green, and bits of real fruit to its popular beverage.
“Kiwis require quite a bit of time and patience to peel, and then it has to be used immediately, so it’s not a realistic solution for quick-service restaurants,” says Becky Westby, director of foodservice and ingredients sales for Oregon Fruit Products. “Fruit in Hand allows for consistent taste and quality, longer storage, while avoiding high labor costs and price fluctuations.”
Award-winning Fruit in Hand is made by hand-selecting fresh fruit picked at the peak of ripeness. It is manufactured using a cold process to maintain the vivid flavor and color of the fruit and lightly sweetened with cane sugar to enhance the fruits’ natural sugars. It contains no artificial flavors or colors, no high fructose corn syrup and has less sugar per serving than fruit syrup or jam. It is certified Kosher, gluten-free and is non-GMO. Using Fruit in Hand couldn’t be easier: it ships frozen in 35 fl. oz. bottles , defrosts within hours under refrigeration, and stays fresh for up to two weeks.
