Oregon Fruit Products will kick off the National Restaurant Association Show with two new Fruit In Hand flavors for the food service industry: Mango Velvet and Pink Guava Velvet. Fruit in Hand is a unique pourable diced or velvet-smooth fruit base designed to add the sweetness, aroma and texture of real fruit to beverages, cocktails, smoothies, desserts, sauces, savories, toppings, and breakfast applications. Mango Velvet has a rich, sweet flavor that has become more widely popular. Pink Guava, a lesser-known fruit in the U.S., is reminiscent of similarly sweet and medium-acid fruits such as papaya, melon, and pear, with a very aromatic, rich bouquet. “We’re seeing a big demand for tropical fruit as restaurants continue to explore global flavors and look for unique ways to compliment heat- and spice-driven menus,” says Becky Westby, director of foodservice and ingredients sales for Oregon Fruit Products. “Fruit in Hand tropical purees are a particularly attractive solution as the pricing, ripeness and availability for these types of imported fresh or frozen fruit can vary widely. Using Oregon Fruit purees allows our customers to develop creative new menu items while saving on high in-house labor costs and food waste.” Oregon Fruit Products will be sampling a wide selection of drinks and dishes made with Pink Guava Velvet and Mango Velvet Fruit In Hand, as well as other flavors, at booth #2285 the National Restaurant Association show, May 20-23, 2017 in Chicago.

Fully developed healthy leaves were collected from two apple cultivars, apple scab susceptible 'Golden Delicious' and resistant 'Fiorina'. Leaves were analyzed 5 times in a period of 1-15 days after mechanical injury and phenolic compounds, using high-performance liquid chromatography with mass spectrometer (HPLC-MS), were determined. In apple leaves, the following phenolic compounds were detected: chlorogenic acid, phloridzin, epicatechin, procyanidin B2, quercetin-3-O-galacto-side, quercetin-3-O-glucoside and quercetin-3-O- rhamnoside. Total phenolic compounds in apple leaves were determined spectrophotometrically. During the observed period, the content of phenolic compounds differed between resistant and susceptible cultivar and also changed in time. Each of the phenolic compounds responded differently to mechanical injury. An increase in chlorogenic acid, procyanidin B2 and total phenolic content was observed after mechanical injury. The increase of phenolic content was much more prominent in leaves of the susceptible cultivar compared to the resistant one after mechanical injury. The results of study show that plants respond similarly to mechanical injury with modified phenolic content and that the response is not the same compared to the pathogenic infection.
