Milne Introduces Powerful Concord Grape Extract Powders

October 18, 2012, Prosser, WA – Milne Fruit Products will introduce a new line of powerful new fruit extract powders to the dietary supplement industry on November 7-8 during SupplySide West 2012 in Las Vegas, NV. The four proprietary formulations to be launched are: MilneConcord™, MilneCran™, MilneBlue™ and MilneBerry™.

“These new extract powders offer the outstanding health benefits of Concord grapes formulated with other healthy fruits,” said Shannon Elkins, director of sales and marketing. “They are packed with higher phenolic content compared to single strength juices and are concentrated to offer an abundance of healthy polyphenols.”

The polyphenols found in MilneConcord™ are plentiful in dark purple and blue fruits and vegetables. When combined with other nutritious fruit extract powders such as blueberry, cranberry, raspberry or blackberry, the combined formulated extract affords even more healthy benefits.

“They offer a wider range of benefits than is provided by either fruit alone,” explained Jim Plate, lead sales agent for Milne’s Health and Wellness products. “The formulations also provide an economical way to increase total polyphenols in consumer products. For example, six grams of MilneConcord extract – about the size of a quarter – has the same amount of resveratrol as a 150 ml glass of wine.”

Resveratrol is noted for its potential anti-cancer and anti-aging benefits. Other polyphenols contained in Milne’s extract formulations include phenolic acids, anthocyanidins and ellagic acids. The products are produced through an all-natural non-solvent extraction process. They are dried without carriers, contain no fillers and do not require a flow agent.

“The benefits are ideal for health and wellness products like supplement tablets, capsules and cereal bars,” said Plate. “They deliver important, concentrated bioactive polyphenols with greatly reduced sodium, carbohydrates and sugars.”

Founded in 1956, Milne Fruit Products is the industry leader in creating fruit juices, concentrates, purees and custom blends for the industrial food and beverage markets, and has recently introduced 100% natural MicroDried™ fruit pieces and powders. With a reputation built on outstanding product quality and customer service, Milne utilizes innovative technologies and rigorous quality controls to provide healthy fruit products that are 100% natural to meet the needs of a diverse consumer marketplace.
