Super Sprout freeze-dried fruit and vegetable powders
An Australian food company is offering a freeze-dried powdered alternative to fresh fruit and vegetables, which it says will combat price rises in fresh fruit and vegetables and extend shelf life.
Super Sprout offers 10 freeze dried powders which have the same benefits as fresh produce, with only water and moisture removed from fruit and vegetables during the production process.
The powders include new “super foods” broccoli sprouts and barley grass sprouts, which can be used in recipes including casseroles, soups, sauces, cakes, salads, juices and smoothies. Super Sprout says that a teaspoon of powder is equivalent to 10 teaspoons of fresh produce.
“Because the powders are concentrated, a daily apple can be replaced with a couple of teaspoons of apple powder as a juice in the morning,” Super Sprout director Melinda Richards said.
“Strawberry powder can be added to milk or sprinkled over ice cream and yoghurt while carrot, beetroot and broccoli sprout powder can be used in pasta sauces and soups, which is particularly good for kids who are fussy eaters.
“The powders are just as fresh as the real thing, can be easily stored in the cupboard for up to two years and cheaper in the long run.”
Super Sprout powders come in broccoli sprout, wheatgrass sprout, barley grass sprout, beetroot, apple, lemon, strawberry, carrot, ginger and blueberry. A 150g tub is priced from $24.95.
