The fruits produced by removing their moisture content and processing them to a usable form for the food and other industries are called as dehydrated fruit ingredients. They are mostly manufactured by freeze drying and converting them to a powdered form, flakes or often in the form of mixed blends. The consumer dislike towards fruits and vegetables have led to the growth of the dehydrated fruit ingredients market. They are widely used in the manufacture of food flavors and aromas and the rising demand for the natural ingredients in food colors and flavors is likely to boost the growth of the dehydrated fruit ingredients market in the forecast period.

The attempts to reduce sugar consumption is also an important factor boosting the growth of the dehydrated fruit ingredients market. Apart from these factors, the dehydrated fruit ingredients market has also grown due to the demand for natural texturizing agents and shelf stable ingredients.
