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.
Pumpkin Flake Powder is offered in 100% fruit - natural (no treatment). Starch may be added to further reduce costs.
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

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.
