Boosting Nutritional Values in Foods

Posted on Mon, May, 2013@ 04:37 PM

Recently, Girl Scout Cookies released a new cookie in 2013 - Mango Crème with Nutrifusion’s Grandfusion as part of the ingredients.  While many scoffed at the idea of nutritionally “supercharging” a cookie, many see this as a toe dip into an ocean of market expansion.  Grandfusion is a blend of fruits and vegetables that, when added to food products, allows companies to claim additional nutritional benefits without affecting taste or functionality. 

Recently in a trade article, scientists experiments with extruded corn snacks to incorporate fish protein powder and omega-3 fish oil.  They were able to determine the exact percentage where children could not detect these items, thereby opening avenues for snack companies to increase nutrient values in products.

At Carolina Ingredients, we are formulating some of our current blends to include Grandfusion - another way to create value for you.
