BM#26 - Gluten-free apple flour

Product description


Apple flour is gluten-free and can be used either for human nutrition or for natural cosmetics. Basically, there are two ways that apple flour can be produced: One way is to process apples directly into apple flour, and the second is to process finely milled, dried apple pomace. Apple pomace is a by-product of apple juice production and is composed of apple pulp residues, peels and seeds. Apple pomace is often considered as waste, but it still contains a high amount of nutrients, which makes apple pomace interesting and valuable for human nutrition and skin care.
