The plum is a fruit that originated in Eurasia and is thought to be one of the earliest domesticated fruits. The plum is a stone fruit, with a large, hard seed surrounded by soft, juicy flesh. There are many varieties that range in color from green, yellow, red, and blue, to purple. Fresh, their taste is sweet to tart. They are used in foods worldwide, from juice, wine, jams, and pickled, to an ingredient in Japanese rice balls called onigiri. A dynamic and versatile fruit, plum contains up to 12% of the recommended daily vitamin C.
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.
