Dried fruit snack bar deliver accessible nutrition

Major fruit crops such as date, apricot and papaya succumb easily to spoilage. As a result, large volumes of these fruits are lost each year, despite their status as vitamin-rich superfoods.

Our dried fruit snack bar concept is designed to reduce this loss and provide low-income consumers with a source of high-powered nutrition that’s affordable and accessible at the same time.

The recipe combines dried dates with cashew and macadamia nuts and Lacprodan® whey protein, raising the protein content to more than 12%. In pilot trials, the concept has been found suitable for local production in countries such as Pakistan, where as much as 25%1 of the annual date crop is lost post-harvest. A similar apricot concept is under development.

Our application team has also developed a baked papaya snack, using milk and whey-based ingredients to raise the protein content to 17% and enhance sweetness with no added sugar.
