Recipe: Guava Mint Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert
Guava’s popularity has been increasing substantially over the past few years with no end in sight. With a tangy, fruity, and bright flavor guava is quintessential to all product lines. Guava’s flavor profile contributes acidity and tanginess, which compliments sweet food items, such as pastries, cupcakes, and icings, and also offers a well-balanced flavor to savory products, such as marinades, dressings, and sauces. Guava imparts a pleasant aroma and color to finished products, making them all the more appetizing to your consumers. Guava naturally contains vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants, making it the perfect ingredient to use in formulations!
