March 7, 2012, Prosser, WA — Milne Fruit Products announced it is testing the abilities of new technologies to enhance the concentration of nutrients in healthy powders, purees, additives and other ingredient supplements for the health food and beverage markets.
“We are determining if concentrated fruit nutrients can be integrated into our product line to deliver nutrient-rich ingredients to the additives markets,” said Michael Sorenson, president and general manager of Milne Fruit Products. “Milne is dedicated to finding innovative ways to improve wellness and increase health benefits in the beverage and health food consumer markets.”
“We are partnering with Nutrasorb in this project, which represents an important step forward in Milne’s ability to extract the naturally concentrated beneficial phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables and increase the healthy attributes of our products,” said Sorenson.
