Fruit and vegetables have an obvious nutritional value, but not only. Let’s make a little tour of the web to know more about common properties of fruit and juices.
“PURE FRUIT JUICES”
They are produced by pressing healthy ripe fruit and pasteurising the juice. No sugar is added.
This is Vitamont’s specialty! 80% of our recipes are Pure fruit juices, whether they are single flavour or cocktails.
“PURE FRUIT JUICES FROM CONCENTRATE”
The juice, which is obtained by pressing the fruit, is concentrated by evaporating off the water to make storage and transport easier. The same amount of evaporated water is then added during bottling. No sugar is added.
We do not produce this type of fruit juice at VITAMONT.
They are produced from fruit juice or fruit purée (a minimum of 25% to 50% depending on the fruit) to which water is added with or without sugar or sweeteners. Nectars are a way of consuming very pulpy fruits (bananas, apricots, etc.) or acidic fruits (red berries, etc.) in liquid form. Regulations do not allow any food colouring or preservatives to be added to juices or nectars.
At Vitamont, we make nectars for fruits, which once pressed, do not produce juice : apricot, mango…
This indication means that the product is not pure fruit juice. They contain a minimum amount of fruit or fruit pulp, water and sugar or sweetener, and can also contain natural fruit flavourings. Certain fruit drinks can be carbonated using carbon dioxide.
