Musselman’s Single-Serve Apple Sauce Line Continues to Expand

Musselman’s Apple Sauce is a go-to foodservice pick as the demand for better-for-you children’s food options increases. The National Restaurant Association’s 2016 What’s Hot Culinary Forecast cited healthful kids’ meals as a top trend. Knouse Foods’ proprietary research of 300-plus foodservice operators further found that 77 percent strongly agree apple sauce is ideal for kids and 81 percent strongly agree it is a great menu option overall.

To support non-commercial and commercial food away from home operations, Knouse is adding a new, on-trend flavor to its 4.5 ounce apple sauce line: Mixed Berry. Made from fresh-picked apples for peak flavor and strawberry, red raspberry and blueberry puree, the new Mixed Berry is sodium free, with no artificial flavors, added sugars or high-fructose corn syrup. Plus, the 4.5 ounce portion meets the USDA guidelines for a full serving of fruit—perfect for giving kids the nutrients they need without excess calories.

Musselman’s robust portfolio of single-serve apple sauce offerings also includes the differentiated 2 ounce and 6 ounce sizes, as well as the Squeezables apple sauce pouches and 4 ounce cups. All varieties of Musselman’s Single-Serve Apple Sauce are fat free and gluten free, shelf stable and require no prep work. Some of the best-sellers in the single-serve apple sauce line include:

The single-serve portions also cut down on food waste and are extremely convenient for operators.”
