Gardena, CA: NP Nutra® today announced the debut of its new high quality Passion Fruit Juice Ingredient. This delicious product boasts not only an enchanting fragrance and tantalizing flavor, but also important nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, potassium and fiber.

NP Nutra’s new Passion Fruit Juice ingredient comes as a clear yellow 80 mesh powder ready for use in juices, smoothie mixes, syrups, ice cream, sorbets, yogurts, candies and fruit pastes or as a delicious tropical flavoring. Passion Fruit has an intense, distinctively exotic flavor that blends well with other tropical fruits such as coconut, mango, papaya, pineapple and banana.

In addition to being very tasty, Passion Fruit (Passiflora edulis) offers many vital nutrients and health benefits with applications in products targeting digestive health, skin health, joint health and respiratory health.

Passion Fruit is a very good source of fiber (some research rates it higher than any other fruit), including low-methoxyl pectin. Studies show that the fiber in Passion Fruit may help maintain digestive and intestinal health.

Piceatannol, a phenolic compound, is another component of this amazing fruit. Evidence has shown that this compound may contribute to skin health. Studies on the benefits of Passion Fruit also suggest that consumption of the fruit may promote joint health as well as respiratory well-being. Passion Fruit is also an excellent source of iron and the B complex vitamins riboflavin and niacin.

NP Nutra’s Passion Fruit Juice Powder is produced in their Brazilian processing facility from the finest quality, freshly harvested Passion Fruit. Careful processing ensures the retention of the full nutrient and flavor profiles. NP Nutra’s Passion Fruit products are GMO Free and Kosher certified.
