Known as the fruit of the gods, figs originated in Asia and in the Mediterranean region. Turkey is the world’s leading producer. California produces 98% of the figs grown in the U.S. There are two dominant varieties offered, one of which is Calimyrna, which are golden in color, and the dark-purple Mission variety. High in fiber, figs aid the digestive tract by preventing common conditions such as diverticulosis. Figs are a great source of minerals such as calcium, copper, potassium, iron, and manganese, which are all important in red blood cell formation. FruitSmart dries and mills figs.
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.
