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!”
