ANAHEIM, CA - Fresh Origins’ new Herb Crystals® and Flower Crystals® recently won second place in the People’s Choice Awards for Innovative New Products at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo.
The new flavor ingredients add a distinctive finishing touch to culinary creations including salads, entrees, desserts, and even cocktails. The herb and flower crystals stem from a proprietary process that is all natural and only adds sugar or salt to the original flowers or herbs, according to a press release.
“Microgreens and Edible Flowers have always been a niche trade, but one that allows for experimentation and innovation,” said David Sasuga, President of Fresh Origins. “Foodservice is an industry of professionals who want to not just be on trend, but ahead of trends and take risks that make our Herb Crystals and Flower Crystals such an exciting product line.”
These new products are now available in 4 oz, 8 oz, and 16 oz bottles in flavors including Basil, Cilantro, Mint, Fennel Flower, Rose, Hibiscus, Cranberry, and for the holiday season, Pumpkin Spice.
The People’s Choice Awards are decided by thousands of restaurant and foodservice professionals who get the opportunity to see, taste, and discover new culinary innovations from more than 50 companies. It’s no surprise that commercial and foodservice markets have found unique ways to use Fresh Origins’ Microgreens and fresh Edible Flowers in new and exciting ways.
Congratulations on the honor, Fresh Origins!
