Imagine you are a manufacturer of beverages or foodstuff. You would like to develop a new product, which will surprise customers in a taste, a flavour and a nutritional value. Imagine that your product can astonish people with original, amazing texture and feeling. The question is - how can I do this? One of the answers is - Just add some of the plant powders, because:

  • they can be used as a stock thickeners or consistency improves in your food composition,
  • they can rich your cocktails and give them unparalleled aroma,
  • they can replace simple and typical instant pickle consumption to matchless and remembered experience on customer site,
  • they can change a colour of your product, for example, darken your tomato sauce (by adding a beet powder),
  • they can change the game in your bakery and give a bit of a new essence to bread or biscuits,
  • they can keep your meat products far from a corner on the consumer table and change them to “a must to be present” products as a part of a meal.

Why not make your salad with a special dressing as well and rich it with plant powders? Finally, why not add some nutritious plant powders and increase a healthy value of your product?

We can show hundreds of examples where plant powders can be applied. However, in this article let’s focus on some of the plant powders compositions and nutritional benefits supplied by them (by nutrients in such powder compositions).
