Booth 2135
 
Welch’s Global Ingredients Group will showcase its portfolio of Concord and Niagara grape products at IFT17 Booth 2135.
 
Concord and Niagara grapes are grown in North America by Welch’s nearly 1,000 family farmers. The Concord grape is a distinctive dark purple grape variety with a sweet bold flavor. Its cousin, the Niagara grape, is a white grape with a golden hue that delivers a flavor profile that is crisp, sweet, light and refreshing, the company said.
 
Exhibiting at Booth 2135, Welch’s Global Ingredients Group will introduce visitors to the FruitWorx range of Concord and Niagara real fruit pieces. Made using a technology called URC, which was developed by Taura Natural Ingredients, FruitWorx pieces are ideal for snack, bakery and confectionery applications. 
 
Also on show will be FruitWorx Concord Grape Juice Powder, which is made with a proprietary dehydration process that gently removes all the water from Concord grape juice but captures its natural wholesomeness and retains its flavor and purple color. The resulting product is ideal for use in a host of applications, including snacks, beverages and functional foods.
 
In addition, Welch’s Global Ingredients Group will highlight the taste and nutrition content of Concord and Niagara grape juices, which are available as single-strength juices, concentrates and purées. Concord grape juice delivers plant nutrients called polyphenols that have been shown to help support a healthy heart.
