Super fruits such as blueberries could prove to be the success story of 2006, according to Innova Market Insights. The analyst says that the increasing popularity of berries and berry flavours in recent years is now extending to other less well-known super fruits. Berry flavours have been popular for a number of years, with initial interest in summer fruits, such as strawberries and raspberries. This has gradually given way to fruits marketed more strongly on a health platform, such as cranberries and blueberries.
Blueberry Treattarome 9840 complements Treatt's rapidly expanding selection of aqueous, FTNF distillates. Recent offerings include Mango Treattarome 9830 and Sugar Treattarome 9807.
