Milne Unveils Its Sweeter Side with New MicroDried® Plus

PROSSER, Wash., Feb. 19, 2015 -- Milne Fruit Products is unveiling a sweet and crunchy version of its MicroDried® line at the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim (Calif.) with the release of MicroDried® Plus. MicroDried® Plus will be a lightly sweetened fruit ingredient bringing a new flavor variety to the Milne line of products and a new alternative to many consumer applications.

Made from 100% all-natural fruit, MicroDried® Plus will be available in three fruit varieties – aronia, blueberry and cranberry. The aronia and blueberry will be offered in whole fruit pieces and the cranberry will be available in whole and halves.

“We wanted to start with three fruits that have great consumer appeal and can complement a variety of commercial products,” said Steve Nugent, Director of IQF and MicroDried® Sales, Milne. “MicroDried® Plus is versatile in that it can elevate the flavor of products while remaining low in calories and fat.”

With its low water activity and greater bulk density, it is an excellent application for rebaggers, confectionaries, hot and ready-to-eat cereals and long-term storage manufacturers. MicroDried® Plus products are also low in sodium, fat and have a minimum two-year shelf life when stored properly.

The entire MicroDried® Plus line is grown and processed in the USA and is WSDA, USDA, BRC and Kosher certified.
