The benefits of adding fruit pieces to a recipe include enhancing fibre, vitamin addition, colour enrichment, natural sweetness and developing texture. The use of fruit as pieces saves preparation time and brings shelf life benefits, in that all these fruit pieces are ambient stable for several months.
