Polaner, a leading national brand of fruit spreads, jams, and jellies since the late 1800s, is set to debut Polaner Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread in April 2018. This unique product is sweetened with golden delicate Maple Grove Farms pure maple syrup and is available in four luscious flavors: Strawberry, Raspberry, Peach and Blueberry.
Polaner Fruit & Maple pairs the fresh taste of fruit with the delicate sweetness of pure maple syrup and each variety contains four ingredients or less, the first two of which are fruit and pure maple syrup. Polaner Fruit & Maple has no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, and no artificial colors. This premium line of fruit and maple spreads is also gluten free and kosher.
This innovative new product converges on two major food trends generating consumer demand. First, Polaner Fruit & Maple uses golden delicate pure maple syrup as an alternative to cane sugar and artificial sweeteners, and is on trend with the alternative sweetener movement that has grown 200 percent in the past four years. Second, there is a significant growth trend in pure maple syrup consumption not only due to flavor preference, but also for its budding use in recipes both at home and in restaurants.
By using maple syrup as a sweetener, Polaner Fruit & Maple imparts a subtle, more balanced and gentler flavor than if sweetened with traditional cane sugar. Polaner Fruit & Maple is versatile as it perfectly complements recipes for appetizers, protein-based main dishes, side dishes, baking, and cocktails in addition to its traditional usage at breakfast.
“There is nothing like Polaner Fruit & Maple on the market today,” says Meghan Swatt, Brand Manager. “With the popularity of pure maple syrup, it is a natural fit to combine maple syrup with the delicious fruit ingredients found in our signature Polaner All Fruit®. And, it is exciting to extend the traditional usage to occasions like appetizers or cocktails.”
