Tree Top’s Fruit Sensations Muesli Crisps are new, dried apple pieces enrobed with whole grains, dried fruit, nuts and natural flavors.
Containing 60% dried Washington state apples that have been super-infused with 10% fruit juice concentrate, sugar, natural color and flavor, this ingredient delivers one fruit serving per gram. Plus, the ingredient functions similarly to raisins, but adds a dramatic kick of flavor and color to any food system.
Fruit Sensations can be made in various sizes and shapes as needed by application, make a great stand-alone snack or can be used in bakery mixes, fruit and granola bars, dried fruit snacks, cookies and scones.
Additionally, this all-natural fruit ingredient is shelf stable in a variety of applications and isn’t preserved with sodium sulfite. The infusion process involves slightly blanching the apples, which significantly reduces enzymatic browning associated with dehydration by inactivating the enzymes.
Customize Fruit Sensations for your application with the choice of rolled grains, nuts, fruit, vegetables, flavors, colors and spices to create a cinnamon, pecan and oat combination for an apple crisp variety.
