What is concentrated juice?

In the past, to serve the needs of transporting juice products, people tended to concentrate fruit juice to the smallest volume and weight. Then after industrial processing by re-diluting, adding impurities, flavors and artificial flavors,

A number of major concentrated juice manufacturers, typically Nafoods in Vietnam, have been researching to concentrate fruit juices with more advanced technology, pasteurization and pure preservation. Then deliver this nutritious juice straight to the market.

A classic juice concentrate production line goes through the following steps: Selection and sanitization of fresh fruit, crushing, de-activating enzyme, distillation, concentration, UHT sterilization, packaging.

Learn more about other juices to distinguish them from concentrated juices?

1. Pure fruit juice

Simply squeeze fresh fruit with some water, separate the pulp, cool it, pasteurize it, and then bott it. This method is quite popular and easy to process because it is fast and convenient.

The downside is that the fruit content will be reduced due to dilution with water. The pressing process also loses the original flavor of the ingredient fruit.

2. Mixed juice concentrate (FC)

Fruit juice is concentrated in many ways, be it freezing, using heat to evaporate, … so that the product is condensed like syrup, for easy transport and storage.

When producing, they revert to a quantity of water, add substances to create flavor, artificial sweetness, and some antioxidants, stabilizers, …

Of course, through the process of condensing and reconstituting the water, processed in many stages, it also makes the flavor and nutritional ingredients of the product go away. It can be said that this juice has the least nutritional value, but is the most popular on the market today.

Note that this type is very easy to confuse with concentrated juice, because the name is similar. But it is important to understand that on the one hand, pure juice is concentrated and kept intact, on the other is a concentrated product that is then prepared to be finished. And the way these two products are concentrated is also completely different.

3. Juice not from concentrated blends (NFC)

In contrast to juice from a concentrated mixture, this type, when pressed, will retain the ingredient content. That is, do not add anything in the pressing process. Even save some of the fruit pulp for a light consistency.

And will be processed immediately, frozen quickly, pasteurized, bottled and delivered to consumers. It is also one of the highest quality nutritional beverage products on the market.

4. Fresh fruit juices directly from the restaurant / home

Direct juices have the advantage of being fresh, ready-to-eat and ready-to-drink. Very beneficial and healthy for you. The drawback is that leaving fruit pulp will lose fiber in it.

In addition, attention should be paid to food safety and hygiene. Because maybe some impurities that some places will mix in the pressing process. Probably the best, but if the method or ingredients are not under control, they can backfire.
