Seawind Foods to Showcase True NO SO2™ at the 2017 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo® in Las Vegas

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., June 6, 2017 — Seawind Foods, a trusted producer and supplier of all-natural dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and spices to industrial food processors, retailers and national consumer brands, will be exhibiting at Booth #3004 during the 2017 Annual Meeting & Food Expo® in Las Vegas.

Seawind’s dried fruit products are unique to the marketplace because they are guaranteed to be True NO SO2™, meaning they never contain any unnatural sulfites. Seawind does not use sulfur dioxide in its preservation and dehydration process, ensuring a high level of quality in its products. This approach to the dehydration process allows fruit to increase its nutritional integrity when it comes to Vitamin A, Iron, Calcium and other essential ingredients.

“Seawind’s goal is to provide an all-natural product,” says Garry Green, President and CEO of Seawind Foods. “This creates healthier and better-tasting products than those made with unnatural sulfites and reduces the danger posed to consumers with sulfite allergies or sensitivities.”

The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Food Expo® will take place June 26-28 in Las Vegas, NV. This event attracts over 20,000 attendees representing food science professionals from over 90 countries across the globe. Seawind Foods will showcase its high-quality ingredients, demonstrating why their products and approach to the marketplace is positively unique. With food quality, safety, and transparency at the forefront of product development, Seawind will explain how they meet, even exceed, the strict US regulatory environment.

Fruits – Seawind’s low sweetened and natural fruits are guaranteed to never contain unnatural sulfites.  Fruits are available as spears, rings, chunks and dices.  Seawind currently offers 10 varieties of fruits, offered as individual varietal or blends. The top selling fruits are banana, pineapple, mango, crystalized ginger and papaya, with rare fruits such as Inca berries and jackfruit also available.
