Preservatives and Treatment Options:

Dehydration itself increases shelf life by lowering the availability of water to microorganisms that cause spoilage. Other substances are used to combat enzymatic browning, which is commonly associated with cut fruit. 

We offer other blends of low moisture flake powders and many of these products are available with the following treatments:

No Treatment: No preservative, no special process

Contains Sulfites (to preserve color):  Sodium Sulfite  <300 ppm maximum 

Calcium Stearate may be added at 0.5% maximum to prevent caking

Packaging:

  • Packaged in a 4.0 mil high density poly bag inside a corrugated box

Reconstitution:

Although the end usage will ultimately dictate the correct ratio, fruit flake powder generally requires three to five-parts water to one-part powder, to fully reconstitute.

Shelf Life & Storage Recommendations:

Storage Temperature Ambient <70ºF Refrigerated <45ºF Frozen <0ºF
Standard (with Calcium Stearate) Not Recommended 2 years Not Necessary
Without Calcium Stearate Not Recommended 2 years Not Necessary

Please note: Based on new shelf life studies, we have revised our storage and shelf life recommendations. Products manufactured after 8/1/19 will reflect these updates on product labels.
