Caravan IngredientsCaravan Ingredients 

Caravan Ingredients introduces Ultra Fresh Sweet, a high-performing alternative to simple enzymes, gums, starches and sugars. According to the company, Ultra Fresh Sweet creates superior eating quality for more than 45 days in a variety of products, including yeast-raised donuts, sheet cakes, cupcakes, pastries and muffins. This extended freshness capability allows for expanded retail distribution possibilities, fuller shelves for enhanced selling opportunities, fewer stale products and an extended sales window. For commercial manufacturers, the longer freshness cycle offers more dwell time in the warehouse as well as in transit. It also provides higher quality through freeze-and-thaw cycles. Ultra Fresh Sweet is available in the same Classic, Premium and Supreme product lines as the original Ultra Fresh.
