In addition, it delivers the same kind of polyphenols found in Welch’s 100% Grape Juice. “Nearly two years ago Welch’s Foods established the Welch’s Global Ingredients Group to deliver the many benefits of the Concord grape to more people and places, in a range of new product formats,” said Wayne Lutomski, Vice President of International & Global Ingredients, “FruitWorx Concord Grape Juice Powder enables us to continue this mission, offering our customers a convenient way to bring the goodness of the Concord grape to a very wide range of applications, many of which are completely new categories for Welch’s Global Ingredients Group. We’re incredibly excited by the prospect of more people experiencing the Concord grape, and by the prospect of working with new partners across the world.”The new Concord grape juice powder is an extension of the existing FruitWorx brand, which already encompasses a range of Concord and Niagara grape-based fruit pieces, flakes and pastes, made using a concentration process called URC, developed by Taura Natural Ingredients. Welch’s Global Ingredients Group also supplies Concord and Niagara grape juices as single-strength juices, concentrates and purées.
