Combine Not From Concentrate (NFC) apple juice with NFC cucumber for a refreshing, hydrating and nutritious drink that beckons the coming of autumn.
The cucumber is a cylindrical fruit that originated in India and has been cultivated for about 3000 years. It is believed to have been introduced to Europe by the Greeks or the Romans. It grows on a creeping vine with large leaves that can climb a trellis or grow along the ground. They are low in calories and a good source of vitamin K. High in water content, and with a refreshing taste, cucumbers have a variety of uses. Our NFC juice has a mild flavor and a beautiful color, making it ideal for a variety of applications. Cucumber juice concentrate, acidified or not, is also versatile to be used in blends.
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 low moisture powders, dices, and pieces are made from whole fruit and vegetables, resulting in an all-natural ingredient, and are offered in numerous sizes and shapes. Since they are dried to a maximum 3-5% moisture, with very low water activity, they are ideal for use in shelf-stable products. Our fibers are made from fruit and vegetable pomace (skin and pulp), making them 100% upcycled, and all natural. They are rich in natural fruit anthocyanins, fibers, and other healthful fruit compounds, and are great natural additions to nutrition bars, cereals, and other baking applications.
