Companies Overcome Technical Challenges To Develop Avocado Powder

June 5, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Two New Zealand firms have partnered to develop an avocado powder for companies that make food products (guacamole), cosmetics (facial masks) and nutraceutical supplements and capsules. The powder produced by spray dryer FoodWaikato and Avocado Oil New Zealand will be sold under the brand name Avopure in Australia, the U.S., Japan and China. The companies had to overcome some tricky technical challenges to make the powder: avocadoes are fibrous, highly viscous, and oxidize rapidly when exposed to air.
