Cranberries in Mueslis.

North American cranberries, Vaccinium macrocarpon, the small red fruit, can be found in numerous product applications across Europe. In one of the most recent stories, Ocean Spray Ingredient Technology Group of P0 Box 44, Altrincham, Cheshire, tel:0161 925 4709, teamed up with a producer of breakfast cereals, Kolln KgaA, to launch Feinschmecker Musli, which is already proving popular in Germany since its launch at the beginning of the year.

Ocean Spray's sweetened dried cranberry (SDC) - a sugar-infused, dehydrated cranberry with a characteristic rich, red colour - is in the vanguard of ingredient sales. SDCs retain their shape well through a variety of processing techniques and have been used in products from cereals and snacks to confectionery and baked goods.

For food manufacturers seeking a sucrose-free alternative, Ocean Spray has recently introduced apple juice infused sweetened dried cranberries, which offer the same processing benefits and which may be used in similar applications.

While SDCs are supplied whole, diced and with varying moisture levels, Ocean Spray's cranberry fruits are also available year-round in frozen, powdered and concentrated forms, as well as in their award-winning flavoured fruit pieces varieties.

Ocean Spray operates a network of distributors across Europe in the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Scandinavia.
