Vegetable Powders

Powders are a versatile and natural way to flavour your savoury product. Depending on the suitability of the vegetable, the powder will either by spray dried from the juice, or dehydrated (vacuum, belt or drum-dried) and milled using the fleshy part of the vegetable itself.

The result is a powder which is easy to transport, store and handle with good shelf life. Using powders in your production allows you to introduce many of the world’s wide variety of vegetable flavours into your end product.

Vegetable-piecesVegetable Pieces

Pieces can be used to get a vegetable bite in your end product and enhance the nutrition. Whilst these are normally slightly dehydrated to increase the shelf life, they retain enough moisture to bring your product alive. Alternatively they can be supplied in vegetable oil if required.

They can be either whole, sliced, diced, flaked or any other type of piece you can imagine. We can work to within your target piece size to ensure you get exactly what you need for your application. We can also offer freeze dried and puff pieces.
