“Vivid Harvest” whole food powders benefit from a patented technology that evaporates water molecules in the starting material.
Mindful of growing interest in whole food nutrition, P.L. Thomas (Morristown, NJ) has introduced whole food powders sourced from non-GMO fruits and vegetables.
The “Vivid Harvest” whole food powders benefit from a patented technology that yields powder granules with what the company says are the same color, aroma, and nutrients as the original starting material (whole food, juice, or purée). This process involves “gently evaporating” food water molecules with light-a process that yields a uniformly shaped granule with 3% or less water content. Low moisture content will improve ingredient shelf life, but these powders also provide less dusting and better dispersion than, say, spray-dried or freeze-dried powders, according to P.L. Thomas.
Vivid Harvest whole food powders are free of solvents and the use of extreme temperatures. They are currently available in 25 fruit and 16 vegetable options. Custom blends are also available.
