Welch’s Global Ingredients Group will showcase its extensive portfolio of
Concord and Niagara grape products at the forthcoming IFT17 (Nevada, Las
Vegas, June 25-28, 2017).
Concord and Niagara grapes are grown in North America by Welch’s nearly
1,000 family farmers and both are true American superfruits. The Concord grape
is a distinctive dark purple grape variety with a sweet bold flavor. Its cousin, the
Niagara grape, is a white grape with a golden hue that delivers a sophisticated
flavor profile that is crisp, sweet, light and refreshing.
Exhibiting on Booth 2135, Welch’s Global Ingredients Group will introduce
visitors to the FruitWorx range of Concord and Niagara real fruit pieces. Made
using a technology called URC®, which was developed by Taura Natural
Ingredients, FruitWorx pieces are perfect for snack, bakery and confectionery
Also on show will be FruitWorx Concord Grape Juice Powder, which is made with
a proprietary dehydration process that gently removes all the water from
Concord grape juice but captures its natural wholesomeness and retains its bold
flavor and rich purple color. The resulting product is ideal for use in a host of
applications, including snacks, beverages and functional foods.
In addition, Welch’s Global Ingredients Group will highlight the great taste and
nutrition content of Concord and Niagara grape juices, which are available as
single-strength juices, concentrates and purées. Concord grape juice delivers
plant nutrients called polyphenols that have been shown to help support a
healthy heart. Also, while more research is needed, emerging science suggests
that Concord grape juice may also provide mind health benefits.

range of Concord and Niagara grape products.
