Healthy indulgence: Guilt-free frozen desserts on the rise
Recent innovations in ingredients and processing techniques have deemed the phrase “Healthy indulgence” as far from oxymoronic.
Another route taken to elevate frozen desserts from a “permissible” treat to a “healthy” indulgence is the addition of fruit, vegetables and other natural ingredients. Jennifer Chaffin, Application Technologist at Sensient Flavors, spoke to The World of Food Ingredients on how this was a trend to watch. “Not only do these appeal to consumers due to their “good-for-you” association but also because exotic fruits such as dragon fruit and superfoods such as kale and spinach add vivid colors into the products, creating visually appealing products that are sure to excite consumers on different levels.”
