Apple Fiber Mini Muffins are gluten free muffins from the pulp and skins of Pacific Northwest Apples. They are naturally high in soluble and insoluble fibers and a good source of polyphenols. Enjoy them “au naturel” or dipped in coffee or milk.
Apples are a symbol of Washington State. FruitSmart is ideally located within driving distance of a variety of premium apples. Two-thirds of all apples grown in the United States are grown in Washington. Popular varieties include: Gala, Red Delicious, Honeycrisp, Fuji, and Granny Smith. While they can contain twice the antioxidants than that of red table grapes, apples are also fat free, low in sodium, and a good source of dietary fiber. They are rich in vitamins, promote heart health, boost immunity, improve digestion, skin and brain health, and metabolism.
Juice concentrates are at the core of what we do. The fruit is processed into juice, which can be filtered, or left cloudy, and concentrated through evaporation. This gives a stable product, easy to store and to transport. Juice concentrates work extremely well in beverages, hard seltzers, cocktail mixes, kombuchas, and any nutraceutical application. Our essences are collected during the evaporation process. The clear, liquid product is sold in pails or drums. Easy to store, essences intensify flavor and offer a clean label solution to formulators.
The apples for our apple juice are all locally sourced, and only the best raw materials are used. These are received just in time for production, are washed and scrubbed to remove defects, then hand sorted and pressed. Available both cloudy and clarified, pasteurized or unpasteurized, our apple juice maintains the characteristic flavor profile of the fruit. We press apples every week of the year. We have access to multiple varieties, which allows us to produce variety specific products, as well as mixed variety blends, to deliver a consistent flavor and acid profile, throughout the year.
Not from Concentrate (NFC) juices, with their clean label and minimum process, are ideal for a variety of applications including hard ciders, brews, wine, spirits, and natural and premium juices and beverages.
Our fruit purees are made using selected fruit. The minimal process of pureeing, pasteurizing, and freezing gives a final product that retains the natural characteristics of flavor, color, and the health benefits of the given fruit. The only ingredient in our puree is the fruit itself, no additives, no colorants, no flavors; 100% fruit, suitable for any clean label requirements. The purees are ideal for use in jams, toppings, baby food, smoothies, hard ciders, baking, and high quality petfood treats.
Our low moisture powders, dices, and pieces are made from whole fruit and vegetables, resulting in an all-natural ingredient, and are offered in numerous sizes and shapes. Since they are dried to a maximum 3-5% moisture, with very low water activity, they are ideal for use in shelf-stable products. Our fibers are made from fruit and vegetables pomace (skin and pulp), making them 100% upcycled, and all natural. They are rich in natural fruit anthocyanins, fibers, and other healthful fruit compounds, and are great natural additions to nutrition bars, cereals, and other baking applications.
