Stratum Extends Shelf Life with Kiwi Fruit Paste

October 31, 2011

ApuraGreen provides a clean label option for manufacturers eager to bring any of the pectin’s benefits to baked goods.

Stratum Nutrition (St. Louis) is now supplying ApuraGreen, a kiwi fruit pectin paste for extending shelf life, reducing fat, reducing sugar, and various other functions in baked goods.

ApuraGreen provides a clean label option for manufacturers eager to bring any of the pectin’s benefits to applicable products. Stratum says it works by proving a natural composition with “functional humectancy,” allowing for softer, fresher products.

As a fat substitute, ApuraGreen may even replace up to 90% of a product’s fat content. It is possible to replace egg, dairy, butter, cooking oil, and casein derivaties with the product.

Stratum is supplying ApuraGreen through a partnership with Anagenix Ltd. (Palmerston North, New Zealand), the company which manufacturers the ingredient.

The natural, non-GMO, allergen-free ingredient is suitable for breads, cookies, muffins, cakes, and other pastries, according to Stratum.
