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.
The fruit and vegetables for our juices are all locally sourced, and only the best raw materials are used. Available both cloudy and clarified (filtered), pasteurized or unpasteurized, our juices maintain the characteristic flavor profile of the given fruit or vegetable. Not from Concentrate (NFC) juices with their clean label and minimum process, are ideal for a variety of applications, including hard ciders, brews, wine, spirits, and natural and premium juices and beverages.
Our fruit purees are made using selected fruit. The minimal process of pureeing, pasteurizing, and freezing gives a final product that retains the natural characteristics of flavor, color, and the health benefits of the given fruit. The only ingredient in our puree is the fruit itself, no additives, no colorants, no flavors; 100% fruit, suitable for any clean label requirements. The purees are ideal for use in jams, toppings, baby food, smoothies, hard ciders, baking, and high quality petfood treats.
