Delicious snacks that not only taste good, but also impress with their natural ingredients and an optimised nutritional profile is something many consumers have been looking for. Savoury and sweet snacks made from cereals, fruits and especially vegetables are thus in greater demand than ever before.
In line with this, Doehler will be presenting a new portfolio of Integrated Dry Ingredients at the FIE. A diverse range of products made from high-quality and carefully selected fruit and vegetables varieties is created thanks to particularly gentle drying technology. Whether slices, pieces, fruit and vegetable granulates, powder or whole fruits – the innovative drying process preserves the natural colour, looks and structure of the raw materials. The natural ingredients can be used in a diverse range of products and they provide cereals, cereal bars and baked goods with an especially crispy note and a unique, natural taste.
Alongside sweet indulgences, Doehler will also exhibit savoury preparations for the food and food service industry with their “Spicy Solutions” range at the FIE. The ready-to-use compounds are based on an assortment of more than 100 herbs and spices combined with different fruits and vegetables. Used as fillings or in doughs, they make it possible to create a wide range of taste experiences. Product ideas such as “Green Pesto Quiche” or “Mexican Tartlet” take consumers on a trip around the world accompanied by intense tastes and flavours.
Ingredients for sweet indulgence
The trend to naturalness, functionality and extraordinary product appearances has also made its way to the confectionery industry. To meet the growing consumer demand, Doehler has developed a wide range of fruit gums with valuable ingredients, such as proteins or botanical extracts which also provide a healthy additional benefit. Enriched with pure juice concentrate or puree, they also offer an extra-fruity taste profile. The new range of hard-boiled candies is also impressive with the addition of Acerola Fruit Powder and an increased amount of vitamin C.
Doehler will also present its innovative coating systems to create the perfect look at the FIE. The portfolio includes Sugar Polishes and Glazes that provide natural colours with a shining appearance, as well as Chocolate Polishes & Confectioners Glazes for long-lasting and brilliant shine on chocolates. Furthermore, the company will be presenting Gum Polishes based on natural waxes and Liquorice Polishes for extruded liquorice products which prevent the confectionery from sticking together.
Visitors to Doehler’s stand (Hall 8, Stand F31) can take a multi-sensory journey to discover a great variety of ideas for the next generation of successful food and beverages.
