Myanmar National TV Features USA Blueberries

Thanks to the Agricultural Trade Office (ATO) in Yangon, Myanmar for the wonderful media bonanza for USA blueberries. Here we have Rachel Nelson who is a big booster of blueberries and local celebrity Chef Ko Hla Tin — also a big blueberry fan!

First, you need the frozen blueberries. This is a new market and our USHBC FoodTech in Vietnam made sure that frozen and dried blueberries were available. Great Job Hana! Also thanks to Pan Myat Phu at the ATO office who worked tirelessly on this project!

The recipe uses a lot of frozen blueberries. This is a traditional old-time recipe.

Here is the finished product. Just like mom used to make!

Blueberry Powder Topping Taiwan!

Now, here is real innovation from I-mei Foods in Taiwan. Introducing a freeze dried blueberry powder with probiotics as a natural ice cream toping. It takes around 11 kg of frozen blueberries to make one kg of blueberry powder. Even a dusting of blueberry powder delivers a lot of blueberry!

 

The product is featured at 100 I-mei convenience stores and foodservice outlets. Note the team up of this Taiwan giant and Danish ingredient company Danisco a part of Dupont.

Here is the package. Note the individual servicing sizes for ice cream servings. This can also be used for topping muffins, cheese cakes and just about anything!   I-Mei is a trendsetting in no-added sugar items.  

This is a great concept for foodservice operators who want to show a commitment to “Real Fruit!”
