As a producer of healthy products, we focus on traditional and professional technological solutions. In the production process, we produce NFC (Not From Concentrate) juices, which are pressed directly from the fruit. Such juices are pasteurized after being poured into glass, brown bottles.
NFC JUICES VS. CONCENTRATED JUICES
Unlike concentrated juices, NFC juices are not enriched with additional substances or water. Concentrated juices, after pressing the fruit, are clarified with a processing aid (which is often gelatin). Then, the juice is concentrated by removing water. In this form, the juice, as an intermediate product, is sold to the producer, who, in the production process of the finished product, dilutes the juice with water (this method allows reducing transport costs and unit prices of the finished product). Such juices lose a lot of their nutritional properties.
To properly explain the process of producing NFC juices, you need to visualize the individual production stages:
Sorting and washing
Sorting is to remove fruit that does not meet our requirements. Then, thoroughly washing the fruit of impurities, which has a decisive impact on the quality and durability of the finished product.
The purpose of shredding fruit is to disrupt cells, expose and reduce the pulp particles in order to give it a light structure that facilitates squeezing and draining of juice. Various types of aromatic compounds and colorants contained in the skin can be extracted by tearing in the shredding process.
Extraction is done on the press. The pressure of the press causes the juice to separate from the pulp. Fruit pomace is removed from the press and the juice is sent for bottling.
The next stage of the production process is the bottling into glass bottles using professional pouring machines.
Pasteurization is the last stage of the production process aimed at ensuring the safety and durability of the product for the entire shelf life.
