POWDERED FLAVORING, WHY?

Alright this blog is for all the pro chefs, experimental cooks, gourmet chefs and anyone who want a more convenient way to add powerful flavors, additional nutrients and color into their culinary creations.

Food powders will not only enhance the profile of your dish, they can provide all the same nutrients of fresh produce! Also, they allow for easier applications of other flavors to be incorporated into liquid sensitive recipes, or recipes that cannot allow for any more liquid content.

BENEFITS:

  • High Heat Stability
  • High Flavor Concentration
  • Natural Color
  • Zero Waste
  • Keeps all their flavors
  • Shelf Stable
  • No Added Sugars

FRUIT POWDER

Chef Rubber fruit powders are made from the whole fruit, freeze drying the entire content of the fruit and then grinding down into a powder. On our site you can find a variety of fruit flavors ranging from favorites like strawberry to dragon fruit. Keeping one or two of these handy is the perfect way to add an oomph of flavor of out-of-season fruits. Fruit powders can stand alone and be the main flavor ingredient in a recipe, or can be used to enhance the flavor. We do suggest allowing the flavors to develop and open up after they have been re-hydrated. For example, if you make a buttercream and allow it to sit overnight, you will notice a significant development in flavor.

One of the things we love about fruit powders is their versatility! Want to bake with them? Go ahead! Want to add them in a cocktail? Be our guest!

If you are concerned with food waste, and shelf life stability these are a great solution to using ingredients that are not only delicious and natural, but can help save products from going to waste. Because there is no liquid content, that when stored in an airtight container, they could maintain their flavor and freshness for up to 5 years. Chef Rubber fruit powders contain nothing else but 100% fruit, making it normal for the sugar content to clump up. A quick fix to this is to simply add the clumps in a food processor or blender to help break up the powder.

Chef Rubber fruit powders are a great addition to baking, beverages and dry food applications.

FRUIT JUICE POWDER

We are excited to introduce this new line of fruit juice powders to our collection! This line is similar to our original fruit powders, but these are made entirely out of JUICE!

Imagine you’ve got a glass of freshly squeezed juice, now take that juice, freeze dry it, and grind it into a beautiful fine powder.

And that’s what we have here! Chef Rubber juice powders are not only great for mixing with water soluble solutions, but can also be used as a natural colorant.

Just like their sister line, juice powders can be used to add intense flavor and lovely natural color to products like ice cream, beverages, icings, etc.

Different from the fruit powders, juice powders consistency is finer grain. Because this product is pure juice, the flavor and color are more pronounced and produce intense results.

VEGETABLE POWDER

It’s a beautiful moment when you can take 1 product and use it 1,000 different ways. At least that’s how we feel about our freeze dried vegetable powders.

These really are a super product. Just like fruit powders, the whole vegetable has been freeze dried and ground into a powder. The end result: a powder that can still retain 100% of the nutrients, while maintaining the natural color and flavor. It almost seems too good to be true, but Chef Rubber vegetable powders are true to their natural flavor.

The flavor of our vegetable powders is highly concentrated, and it’s suggested to allow them to open up in order to experience their full flavor profile. Not only do they supplement flavor and nutrition but are also great for adding color to food products like pasta and bread.
