Traina Foods Introduces Home Grown Barbecue Sauce

Traina Foods, a U.S. purveyor of sun-dried fruit, introduces Traina Home Grown BBQ Sauce in sun-dried plum and sun-dried apricot varieties. Originally created and served at the Traina family restaurant, The Fruit Yard, in Modesto, Calif., the retail line functions not only as a sauce, but also as a dip and marinade. The company blends tomatoes with naturally sun-dried fruit puree to create a balance of sweet and savory. Both sauces complement a variety of meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables. They are kosher, gluten-free, vegan and made without the use of corn syrup.

The sauces come in 16-oz squeeze bottles with a suggested retail price of $3.99-4.99. Earlier in the year, the company rolled out Organic Classic Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup, Organic Sicilian Ketchup, which contains a unique blend of fennel, garlic and other Italian spices, and Fruitons under the Traina Home Grown banner. Fruitons is a line of sun-dried fruits and vegetables that comes in single-serve 0.75-oz. packs and 6-oz. family-sized bags. The savory variety features tomatoes, garlic and herbs, while the sweet variety is a blend of peaches, cranberries, grapes, apples and blueberries.
