White chocolate pieces with purple fruit and vegetable powders

Violet-coloured fruits and vegetables have a high antioxidant content. Antioxidants defend the body’s cells against free radicals. What’s more, they are anti-inflammatory and protect vessels. HERZA Schokolade has just introduced new purple chocolate pieces to cater for this trend. The “purple range” consists of white chocolate enhanced with concentrated fruit and vegetable powders. The resulting chocolate pieces in six different shades of purple are visual highlights in cereal mixtures, muesli bars or ice cream. They are available as big leaves, prisms or chopped pieces. On request, the company can also offer the purple range in customized shapes. The colour of the chocolate pieces stems from the use of fruit powder of elderberries, aronia berries and wild blueberries, as well as vegetable powder extracted from beetroot and black carrots. Hibiscus extract is another source of colouring and nutrients. All of these varieties of fruit and vegetable are rich in various vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances. The antioxidative, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying action of beetroot is based, amongst other things, on the high concentration of the vegetable colourants betanin and vulgaxanthin and the high levels of B vitamins and iron. Aronia berries are a real super food as they contain several vitamins, including A, C and E, along with numerous minerals and trace elements, for instance calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and iron. They contain health-promoting flavonoids, too. Thanks to this high concentration of nutrients, they support the cardiovascular system and immune defence. Anthocyanins rank amongst the most important antioxidants. These phyto colourants protect the body’s cells and vessels, and are anti-inflammatory. Black carrots, wild blueberries and hibiscus extract are rich in anthocyannins.
