Infused Dried Vegetables Add Savory Flavors to Products

June 30, 2009
Graceland Fruit has increased capacity by more than 40 percent, bringing a new dryer online, allowing the Michigan fruit and vegetable processor to produce new lines of infused dried vegetable ingredients and better meet growing consumer demand for healthy food products. The vegetable line includes broccoli, carrots, celery, sweet corn, green peas, red peppers and green peppers. The ingredients add savory, all-natural flavor and healthy variety to a wide range of consumer products such as bakery (bagels, specialty artisan breads and corn bread), pasta dinners, complete and add-to meals, shelf-stable home meal replacements, side dishes, snacks and trail mixes.
