Increased Shelf Life, Throughout Year Availability to Meet the Demand
Apricots are consumed throughout the year owing to their great taste and nutritional value. Apricots are considered to be one of the healthiest foods as they are rich in nutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats, fibers, vitamins and minerals. In addition, they also contain vitamin A, C, K and B complex and reasonable quantities of organic acids, such as citric acid and malic acid. Fresh apricots have high moisture content due to which they are more vulnerable to texture and taste deterioration.
To enhance the shelf life of apricots, they are dehydrated, which makes storage and transportation of apricots easier and economical. Dried apricots are easily available through wider market penetration through various retail formats. Ease of access across the world will play a pivotal role in increasing the consumption of dried apricots during the forecast period.
Increasing Applications of Dried Apricots in Food and Bakery Industry
Many food companies use dried apricots in their products and are introducing different types of snacks and bakery products that use dried apricots as a topping. In addition, companies are also offering dried apricots in different packaging formats in their product portfolio to fulfill the demand from a wide range of customers. Convenience packaging also aids in the transportation of dried apricots and their preservation over longer durations.
