Chaucer Foods Showcases Freeze-Dried Innovations at Expo West

Sample superfoods for food and beverage formulation at Booth #5517

ANAHEIM (March 5, 2020) – Consumers show a growing preference for simple, clean ingredients that offer well-rounded nutrition. Chaucer Foods, the world’s leading supplier of freeze-dried fruit, vegetables and baked ingredients, will showcase solutions that address the latest food and beverage trends, from health and wellness to clean label, at Expo West 2020, March 5-7.

As the leader in the baked and freeze-dried sectors, Chaucer Foods is consistently one step ahead of consumer needs and market trends. The company uses its unrivalled global reach, manufacturing footprint and integrated planning process to deliver to food and beverage manufacturers the ingredients, products and solutions that create real value for consumers.

“At Chaucer, we work collaboratively with our customers to help them innovate new products that align with evolving consumer tastes,” noted Tom Malkoski, CEO of Chaucer Foods, Inc. “Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables are versatile and easy-to-use. They deliver on taste, texture, and nutrition, and are an immediate value-add for products appealing to a health-focused and clean label consumer.”

Chaucer Foods’ freeze-dried fruits and vegetables are 100% natural and contain no added sugar. Unlike other drying methods, freeze-drying locks in natural color and flavor, and preserves full nutritional value. Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables can be leveraged in a range of applications, including beverages, confectionery, snacks, savory meals, bakery, dairy and cereal.

Visitors to Chaucer’s Booth 5517 will have the opportunity to sample the company’s freeze-dried portfolio in several innovative applications, including: 

  • Beverage boosters prepared with freeze-dried kale, pineapple, ginger, and lemon powder
  • Smoothies squares leveraging freeze-dried whole food powders
  • Indulgent trail mix prepared with freeze-dried tart cherries, freeze-dried apple dices, freeze-dried cheese dices and sprouted pumpkin seeds 
  • Chocolates with freeze-dried fruit and antioxidants, plus desserts with sweet baked inclusions

The company will also offer product samples from its consumer brand, Crunchies, including popular chocolate-covered varieties. Visitors are also encouraged to stop by the booth for product giveaways and expert tips for formulating with freeze-dried ingredients in various forms.
