Freeze Dried Fruit Powder


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I have searched online for a company that offers freeze dried fruit and powders to use in my chocolates. 

Can you please share with me the online sources or stores you use? 

I don’t need bulk but smaller Quanities.

I have a few from Nuts.com, and am pleased with the flavor.  The site carries a nice selection over 20 different powders) in small portions. I do suggest sifting some of the powders a bit, as I have come across seeds in the raspberry powder.

On the subject of freeze dried fruit powders in chocolates... has anyone done any testing to see what affect they have on a truffle's shelf life? 

As they are by definition dry, I don't think they would add any moisture whatever to the filling, so the water activity (Aw) is unlikely to be affected. The biggest culprits in my experience are with ganaches that have too high a proportion of cream to chocolate and with what are essentially water ganaches, where a fruit purée is substituted for cream.

Right. I'm more wondering if something needs to be done to keep them from drawing what little moisture is in a truffle to themselves, and causing the truffle to dry out too quickly.

Has anyone tried to make their own fruit powders?

I am going to attempt to make some from Rhubarb this next spring... any tips would be helpful!

 

 

Just buy some freeze dried fruits and put in food processor.  Drying your own, unless you have a freeze drier will work, but not as well.
