California Figs for today's pet flavor and nutrition demands
Figs are trending! They certainly have their place in ancient history but today chefs, consumers, and pets are rediscovering the fig and simply can’t get enough. According to Mintel, new products containing fig ingredients are on the rise around the world for flavor, functionality and nutritional benefits. Ounce for ounce, figs provide a nutritional punch that is unmatched by any other fruit. In addition to being an excellent source of fiber, figs contribute essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and copper. Figs are also rich in antioxidants, and are fat-, sodium-, and cholesterol-free. But not all figs are created equal. California Figs are grown in the fertile soil of the Central San Joaquin Valley, home to one of the world’s most famous fruit and vegetable growing regions and the highest quality standards in the world. California Fig ingredient products are also unique to California. The ingredients were developed to provide solutions to product developer needs. You won’t find many of these products anywhere else. So when you think figs, think California!
