Fruit d’Or (Villeroy, QC, Canada), a grower, harvester, and processor of organic cranberry and wild blueberry ingredients, will debut new ingredients at the 2023 IFT FIRST Food Expo taking place in Chicago on July 16-19, 2023, at booth S1751.

The company’s newest introductions are crunchy “blueflakes” and “cranflakes” suited for foods like confectionery, granola, energy bars, cold cereals, and herbal tea. The company describes them as “only one ingredient, just fruit with a satisfying crunch,” adding that the berries “retain all their benefits and natural goodness, including polyphenols.” All of the flakes ingredients are organic and clean-label with no added sugar.

Other ingredients featured at the show will include “unsweetened and soft gems” suited for trail mixes, bakery products, cereals and bars, and snacks. These unsweetened and soft cranberries are infused with soluble fiber, boosting the fruits’ fiber content and lending a soft, moist texture.

Also offered are cranberry and wild blueberry 100%-fruit powders suited for dairy, energy bar, bakery, smoothie, and confectionery products. Rich in polyphenols and anthocyanins, these whole-fruit powders have no added sugar, preservatives, flavor, additives, or fillers. They are super concentrated. The firm notes that it takes 37 pounds of cranberries to make a single pound of its 100%-fruit powder.

Finally, the firm will feature its cranberry seeds and dry seed extracts that are upcycled, sustainable sourced, clean-label, and organic and suited for energy bar, bakery, confectionery, and cereal products. “The distinctively red, crunchy little seeds are upcycled from Fruit d’Or’s cranberry production, making them a sustainable choice.” Nutrients within the seeds and dry seed extracts include protein, fiber, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
