White Papers

In this white paper, we will review the selection, processing, shelf life, nutrition, and practical aspects of the use of evaporated and low moisture apple products in snacks, bars, cereals and bakery products.

Fruit ingredients, from drum-dried powders and flakes to purées and concentrates, can aid and extend shelf life in baking applications and other food systems. Fruit ingredients present formulators with another tool in their arsenal when seeking clean label solutions.

Many industries would envy the hard cider industry’s double digit sales increases for the last three years and counting. Meeting consumer demand for this popular beverage requires a reliable supply of high-quality apple juice or other fruit juices with the appropriate attributes for cider brewing.

Antioxidants, fiber and clean label implications — these and a host of other benefits make fruit powders, concentrates and purées attractive ingredients for pet food or treat formulations. In addition, consumers’ top concerns when purchasing pet food include a desire for foods processed in the U.S. and cleaner, simpler product profiles.

The industry push for clean labels shows no signs of slowing down. Indeed, its rapid acceleration is fueled by consumer demand for foods formulated with simple, more natural ingredients whenever possible.

  • One of my colleagues told me she was impressed when she heard the founder of The Female Farmer Project, Audra Mulkern, speak at a recent conference about women in agriculture. Because I often interact with our Tree Top farmers—both men and women—I was intrigued enough to poke around a bit and find out more about the project.

  • More and more consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with the amount of added sugars in their diet. New FDA guidelines recommend that consumers limit their added sugar intake to 50 grams per day. Added sugars are sugars or syrups that are added to products during processing to enhance sweetness and are not inherent in the food.

  • Last month Tree Top participated in a community event supporting the Yakima, Wash., Police Department K-9 unit. It was a great opportunity to mix and mingle with our neighbors and four-footed friends. While the event was focused on raising funds to replace one of the K9 dog retirees, it got me thinking about feeding man's best friend.

  • California pear orchards are set very light this year. The official estimate will be out in two weeks, but overall the crop appears to have set much lighter than originally thought.

  • California is experiencing record volumes of strawberry currently. This looks to be the case for a few more weeks.
