Native to Mexico, Central America, and areas of Africa, guavas are believed to have been cultivated as early as 2500 BC. They can now be found in most tropical and subtropical regions. They contain 2-500 small edible seeds, while other varieties may be seedless. FruitSmart can offer this sweet, tart tasting product in many forms, including juice concentrate and puree. This superfruit contains four times the vitamin C found in oranges and four times more fiber than pineapples. It is also rich in other nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin B6, copper, and potassium.
Juice concentrates are at the core of what we do. The raw material 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.
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.
