Five new varieties of a dried fruit product made from a process known as vacuum microwave dehydration have been introduced in the UK.

The MicroDried range, from Milne Fruits, is said to work with breakfast cereals, baked goods, snack chips, smoothies, spreads and juices.

New fruits

The new fruits are aronia berry, blueberry, mango and pineapple, along with a sweet potato variety.

Compared with traditional techniques such as freeze dried or IQF (individually quick frozen), the MicroDried range is claimed to look, smell and taste more like fresh fruit.

The products can be bought whole or fragmented, offering a greater variety of textures.

More vital nutrients

MicroDried products retain more vital nutrients than other commercial dehydrated and dried fruit products, said Rachel Fordham, dairy, desserts and beverages sales manager at UK distributor Cornelius.

“They are unique in that they deliver real fruit colour, flavour and enhanced nutritional performance to consumers.”
