- Natural extracts make a key difference
- Exotic juices in HPP quality, the seal of quality for pure taste
- Exclusive citrus fruits still on trend
Frankfurt, August 19th, 2019. tropextrakt will be presenting its innovative and ingenious solutions at this year’s Anuga, the world’s largest professional trade fair for the food and drink industry. Highlights of this year’s exhibition presentation include extracts of mate, guarana, acerola and açai, select juices in HPP quality and pure juices made of exotic, exquisite citrus fruits such as yuzu and calamansi.
Natural extracts make a key difference
Mate, guarana, acerola and açai are the highlights among the extracts tropextrakt will be presenting this year. They are part of the Fruition Botanicals Line, under which partner company Duas Rodas offers plant essences of the highest quality. The select extracts are known for their high function and added value.
Currently, mate is shaping the trend towards “green energy” as the basis for a new generation of energy drinks.
In contrast to artificial or natural caffeine, which is extracted from coffee through intensive processing, mate is a “completely”natural product. Gentle processing means it offers ingredients that improve the body’s absorption of the caffeine it contains. Valuable substances such as polyphenols and theobromine also have a positive impact on the body. Mate reduces appetites and boosts fat burning.
Due to its high levels of vitamins and minerals, mate can almost be thought of as a nutritional supplement. The mate tropextrakt sells contains standardized levels of caffeine, polyphenols and theobromine, allowing it to incorporate the positive effects of these ingredients into its products. Guaranais also known as a natural stimulant with a refreshing effect that is more gentle and lasts longer than that of coffee. Energy drinks, typically thought of as unhealthy and artificial, can be both effective and healthy through the use of such ingredients, in addition to offering a pleasant, natural taste.
The acerolacherry is known for its high vitamin C content of 1,000 to 4,000 mg per 100 g of fruit.
tropextrakt and Duas Rodas offer acerola as a product line with different levels of natural vitamin C – between 17% and 25% of natural ascorbic acid. As a natural source of vitamin C, acerola is used in many different areas of food production, for instance as an additive in fruit juices, in nutritional supplements, or as a refinedaddition to candies and ice cream. The organic variation of this fruit powder is primarily used in the organic baking industry to improve dough properties.
Açaí, a fruit originating from the Amazon region, is considered around the world to be a superfood offering many different nutritional benefits. Scientific studies have proven the different nutritional properties of açai fruit and the synergy between its different components, primarily polyphenols, fibers and mono- and polyunsaturated fats.
Exotic juices in HPP quality,
the seal of quality for pure taste
In partnership with Taiwanese manufacturer Chia Meei Food Industrial Corporation, tropextrakt continues to offer its customers select juices in HPP quality. These include watermelon, pineapple, lychee, soursop, and our exotic “tropical plus” blend.
In the food industry, there are different ways to make products shelf-stable. One of the most gentle manufacturing processes is high-pressure processing (HPP), which kills germs and bacteria using high pressure levels. The added value of this process is that it not only retains vitamins and minerals, it also preserves the fresh, original taste of the fruits. Black Beauty watermelons are used to produce HPP quality watermelon juice, a highly aromatic variety.The watermelon is the most popular and most well-known melon in Germany. They are fruity, fresh, a true thirst quencher, and popular among kids and adults alike.
Exclusive citrus fruits still on trend
Tropical citrus fruits remain on trend, thanks to their unique tastes. They remain highly popular on the European market.
The juice of the Asian citrus fruit, the yuzu, is a sumptuous delicacy. It has such an incomparable, intense and diverse flavor that just a few drops are enough to add a highly aromatic, sour, bitter and spicy note and flowery aroma to any food or drink. Its complex citrus aroma is slightly bitter, like a grapefruit, and yet sweet like a mandarin orange. It is a great choice for producing fruity-fresh ice creams or creamy fruit yogurt, and for making outstanding, refreshing drinks or adding to cocktails or smoothies. The yuzu also gives first-class fruit juices and invigorating shakes an unmistakable flavor, and can be added to candies, marmalades or baked goods.
The calamansi is one of the most exciting new discoveries tropextrakt has made for its customers. It is a very small citrus fruit, the cross between a mandarin orange and oval kumquat. The unique aroma of the calamansi is perfect for exotic taste experiences, and pairs perfectly with familiar ingredients like oranges, apples, yellow plums, currants, and herbs and spices such as cinnamon, peppermint or vanilla. tropextrakt has already tested these and other combinations in its own laboratory, where the company develops specialized applications for food and drink industry customers on request.
From 4 p.m. on both days of the trade fair, tropextrakt will be inviting interested visitors to also taste its exotic recipes in the form of cocktails.
