He shared news of Taura’s delicious protein fruit bar concept with me and FoodBev’s Fraser Johnston. The slim, chewy pieces of fruit slice dotted with crunchy pieces of whey protein are easy and tasty to eat and provide a good shot of protein to keep you going, which is a big help during a busy show.
Davy explained that the special properties of Taura’s fruit products ensure a dry product that when rolled out to create a ‘carpet’ of fruit mass can be used as a carrier for any inclusions under 5mm. This opens up possibilities for formulating with biscuity pieces, crunchy protein pieces and other bits to add novelty, or additional health benefits to an already healthy fruit product for snacking.
So, coated with chocolate, wrapped in yogurt or rolled into bars, Taura’s fruit ingredients strike me as a rather delicious healthy base for innovation.
Now, I’m off to see some more developments on the stands.
