Check out this month’s lineup of ingredient launches from Van Drunen, Tree Top and Caravan.

Grown in the Pacific Northwest, individually quick frozen (IQF) apples and cherries from Tree Top taste true to the fruit, and retain the unique qualities of its varieties, such as Granny Smith apples and Bing cherries. Add ready-to-use IQF apples and cherries in fillings, sauces, pies and other baked goods, and anywhere the goodness of fruit is desired.

Cakesoft is the latest innovation in extended shelf life launched by Caravan Ingredients. This product greatly reduces cake staling by keeping cake soft, moist and resilient for at least 60 days. Extend shelf life in any cake from large gourmet cakes to snack cakes and muffins while retaining moistness, tenderness and taste. Cakesoft also allows for refrigerated storage of cakes, which will further extend shelf life by inhibiting mold growth.

Van Drunen Farms offers low-moisture, cane sugar-infused blueberries that provide the same great flavor and quality attributes of the standard fructose-infused blueberries.
These plump little superfruits offer a sweet and tangy taste, are a good source of fiber and are high in antioxidant benefits. Applications might include bakery mixes for scones, breads and muffins and add-ins for pastry fillings and snack mixes. Plus, these blueberries are available year-round in whole berry, wild or cultivated formats.
