Peaches, of the stone fruit family with a slightly hairy surface, are bursting with health. In China, peaches are considered a symbol of good luck and longevity. In other parts of the world, peaches are popular with health enthusiasts and foodies alike. But why are peaches so popular and why use freeze-dried peach powder? Let’s take a closer look at this juicy fruit and find out!
The juicy peach – a true superfruit
Beautiful in appearance and low in calories, the peach is a truly vitamin- and mineral-rich fruit. It is rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and bioflavonoids. This bountiful superfruit can help to get rid of high cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The biggest miracle workers are the two types of antioxidants found in peaches – carotenoids and caffeic acid – which strengthen the body’s overall resistance and help in a wide range of conditions.
- support digestion;
- look after cardiovascular health;
- keep your skin glowing and healthy;
- alleviate allergy symptoms;
- help to prevent the emergence of cancer cells.
In addition, peaches are the greatest friend of weight watchers, containing few calories but generous amounts of beneficial fibre to help keep you fuller for longer. Peaches are also effective in preventing constipation and relieving other digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome and stomach gas.
Why to prefer freeze-dried peach powder?
The health-giving freeze-dried peach powder allows you to add sweet peaches to your daily menu all year round. Even when fresh fruit is not available, for example in wintertime. Freeze-dried fruit powder, on the other hand, is practically nutritionally equivalent to fresh fruit. The main difference is that freeze-drying extracts water from the fruit, which helps to preserve the product. In this way, harmful bacteria are prevented from colonising the product and the freeze-dried powder can be stored for many years without spoilage. Removing the water results in a raw material that is around 90% lighter but much more concentrated, making it easy and convenient to use. The freeze-drying process, however, preserves the colour, aroma and nutritional value of fresh fruit.
Easy, quick, delicious
Freeze-dried fruit powder is also ideal for those who are not big fruit lovers but would still like to enrich their diet with beneficial vitamins and minerals. Peach powder is great for this. The sweet-sour taste and wonderful aroma of natural peach powder will instantly captivate your heart and taste buds from the very first bite!
