Formulating with Whole Fruit Ingredients

The presentation titled “Formulating with Whole Fruit Ingredients,” was given by Kristen Sparkman, M.S., Culinologist, CuliNex, LLC. This presentation was part of Global Food Forums’ 2021 Premium Webinar Series “Formulating with Sweet Enhancing Ingredients.”

The webinar description for “Formulating with Whole Fruit Ingredients” is as follows: While developing products with whole fruit sweeteners can increase the health halo of a product and make an ingredient statement more consumer-friendly, there are some challenges. Common formulating challenges with whole fruit sweeteners include determining how non-sugar components of fruit can impact products and determining which format is favorable for the desired final products. In this presentation, we will be covering ways to use various forms of apples, berries, dates, raisins, and prunes, providing examples of ways to formulate with each. These examples come from previous research and development from the CuliNex Development team.
