Ocean Spray's Ingredient Technology Group has introduced a sweetened dried cranberry (SDC) to its range of dried fruit ingredients for bakery products.
The firm is marketing the new Choice SDC ingredient as the new low-cost option with the same quality as the Classic Soft and Moist SDC. Promising the same functional benefits as other sweetened dried cranberries, the new Choice SDC can be used in baked goods and cereal bars.
"We now offer SDCs at varying moisture contents and degrees of sweetness to fit a wide range of applications," says Kristen Borsari, global senior marketing manager at Ocean Spray.
She says the ingredient, Choice SDC, adds flavour, colour and fruit texture to products without impacting on processing. The original SDC had a tart flavour profile and was a low-moisture ingredient. But Ocean Spray expanded the range with Soft & Moist dried cranberry, which has a higher moisture content and a sweeter flavour - suitable for mixes, baked goods and confectionery.
Ocean Spray also supplies fruit ingredients including sweetened dried cranberries, cranberry powders and purée.
