Advantages of Juice Concentrates and Essences

Juice concentrates are at the core of what we do. The fruit is processed into juice, which can be filtered, or left cloudy, and concentrated through evaporation. This gives a stable product, easy to store and to transport. Juice concentrates work extremely well in beverages, hard seltzers, cocktail mixes, kombuchas, and any nutraceutical application. Our essences are collected during the evaporation process. The clear, liquid product is sold in pails or drums. Easy to store, essences intensify flavor and offer a clean label solution to formulators.
