Taura Introduces ‘Gourmet Series’ Real Fruit Pieces For Artisan Chocolate and Bakery Producers

Taura Natural Ingredients is set to launch a range of natural concentrated fruit pieces designed specifically for use by artisan chocolatiers, bakers and chefs. The new ‘Gourmet Series’, which will be unveiled at ISM 2013 in Cologne, comprises six varieties of fruit pieces made using Taura’s Ultra Rapid Concentration® (URC®) technology and designed to be easily used ‘off-the-peg’ by smaller-scale craft bakeries, chocolate producers and innovative chefs.

Gourmet Series fruit pieces are suitable for use in a comprehensive range of artisanal products, including chocolates, cakes, biscuits, cookies, muffins, breads and brioche, as well as dishes and desserts served in restaurants. With their high fruit content, these premium quality ingredients offer a delicious, convenient and functional alternative to fresh, candied and dried fruit ingredients.

Included in the range are strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, orchard fruit, orange and honey. All six varieties offer the benefits that are now synonymous with Taura’s industrial-scale ingredients but in a format and pack-size that has been specially created for artisan producers.

Gourmet Series ingredients have all the taste of fresh fruit, but without the mess and perishability. With a long shelf life at room temperature, Gourmet Series ingredients can help craft bakers, chocolatiers and chefs eliminate the high levels of waste often associated with fresh fruit, thereby controlling costs.

The ingredients in the Gourmet Series range also offer significant taste advantages over dried fruit ingredients and, in contrast to candied fruit pieces, contain no added preservatives, artificial colours or flavours.

Gourmet Series pieces are designed to perform in a wide range of artisan applications and won’t burn or bleed during baking. In high moisture applications, such as bread and cakes, URC® fruit pieces absorb moisture to become spots of soft fruit, bursting with flavour. In low moisture applications the low water activity of the fruit pieces ensures they retain their soft texture without spoiling the base product. The pieces are supplied in convenient and user-friendly 2kg bags.

Taura’s Gourmet Series fruit pieces will be officially launched at the forthcoming ISM trade fair, which takes place at the Cologne Messe from 27 to 30 January 2013. Taura will be exhibiting in Hall 4 on Stand A033, where show visitors will be able to find out more about the new range.

Marc Cautaerts, General Manager EMEA at Taura, says: “The bespoke solutions we create for most of our larger customers are not appropriate for artisan chocolate and bakery producers, so we have created Gourmet Series as an off-the-peg offer to meet their specific needs. It means all the benefits of our unique and high quality URC® fruit ingredients – as well as our technical know-how – are now available for the first time in the craft chocolate and bakery market.”
