Keywords: fruit, cereals, Candied Fruits

Kerry produces a large range of dried candied fruits.

The dried sugar infused fruits have low water activity value and a high brix residue. This allows our fruit to remain soft and have a lower sweetness level than traditional candied fruit.

The key fruits in the range are orange and lemon peel, apricot, raisin or custom specific.

Kerry fruit hearts come in a range of particle size and are the perfect ingredient for chocolate bars, cereal and muesli bars, cakes, coated centres or nougats.
