New Segment of Innovations TV Series Featuring Welch’s to Air via Discovery Channel

DMG Productions explores recent advances in technology as it relates to food production.

Jupiter, FL— Innovations with Ed Begley Jr., announced today that it will feature Welch’s in an upcoming episode, airing third quarter 2016 via Discovery Channel. Dates and show times TBA.

In this episode, Innovations will educate viewers on FruitWorx®, a new, real fruit ingredient made from Welch’s own Concord or Niagara grapes, which is a result of its partnership with Taura Natural Ingredients. FruitWorx® inclusions are created using URC® (Ultra Rapid Concentration), a unique process that concentrates the natural goodness of Welch’s grape juices and purees into versatile pieces, flakes and bites that can be used by manufactures for variety of applications. This innovative technology has given Welch’s the opportunity to take the taste and nutrition of its unique grapes beyond 100% juice to products such as snack bars, bakery products and breakfast cereals for the first time.

Consumers are looking for foods that are both naturally wholesome and tasty. Audiences will be excited to learn that Welch’s Concord FruitWorx® contains only natural fruit sugars and delivers the same bold, delicious flavor and beneficial plant nutrients (polyphenols) found in Welch’s beloved 100% grape juice. This key ingredient comes from Welch’s owners — a cooperative of approximately 1,000 family farmers, who for generations have planted, cared for, and harvested Welch’s grapes across North America.

”Welch’s vision is to bring the goodness of our family farmers’ grapes to more people and places,” says Wayne Lutomski, VP of International and Welch’s Global Ingredients Group. “FruitWorx® gives us the opportunity to share this goodness with families across the globe in a variety of new, convenient and delicious ways.”

“Taura’s URC® process is able to take juice concentrates and purees and remove the water content within a very short period of time to maintain the material’s integrity,” said Ken Sawyer, Producer for the series. “This conserves the fruit’s bold, rich flavor for which Concord grapes are famous. We look forward to educating audiences on the topic.”
