Dry Products: Vegetable Powder – Manufacturer & Supplier

May 02, 2019

 

There is no denying that the current whole food movement is encouraging people to increase their consumption of vegetables and fruits which is a good thing.

 

Longer shelf life

This shift has led to producer’s creating and providing health-conscious consumers with fruit and vegetable powder which offer a wide range of advantages. Some of these include benefits to the manufacturers such as their practicality, and benefits to consumers such as longer shelf life when compared to fresh fruit and vegetables, while still retaining minerals and vitamins. The great thing at the moment is that improved manufacturing techniques are creating powders that have a better taste and aesthetics, as well as locking in more of their healthy properties.

 

Processing

Creating fruit and vegetable powder is not as simple a process as some may presume and can present a number of challenges. One common issue is with foods with a high sugar content due to its stickiness and its tendency to burn early on during high-temperature drying, Herbs and leafy greens also present issues due to their delicate nature during handling.

 

Powders future: Advantages and benefits

Despite these concerns, the popularity of vegetable and fruit powders is predicted to increase over the next few years due to two key factors. The first is its convenience. Vegetable powders typically have a shelf life of around 12 months when stored correctly while still retaining their vitamins and minerals.

 

The second key reason is because of the health benefits that these powders possess. They are almost all high in fibre which can help lower cholesterol, control blood sugar levels, and improve bowel movement and health.

 

Some powders are also a good source of protein which helps maintain and grow muscle mass and protect bones. These powders also contain antioxidants such as Betacarotene and Lycopene that help the body to ward off and fight disease by protecting it from harmful free radicals.
