Fruit Juice Concentrate-Make More Tasty Juice

Fruit juice concentrate, also known as concentrate juice or concentrated juice, contains less water than normal beverage, or not-from-concentrate forms of juice. Through a set of advanced filtration and extraction processes, normal fruit juice becomes fruit juice concentrate, which is better suited for storage, shipping and resale in grocery stores and warehouses.

Fruit Juice Concentration Process
When fruits reach their ripening point, they get picked and prepared for the juice extraction process. Machines allow for a fast peeling and coring process that removes the pieces of the fruit that will not get used for the juice making process. The meat of the fruit gets pressed and squeezed and the juices become filtered into a large container, which will still include pieces of pulp and other remnants. Concentrated fruit juice is made through a process called thermal evaporation which uses heat to evaporate most of the water from freshly squeezed juice. It can also be concentrated through reverse osmosis to remove the water from the juice solids. Then the concentrated juice gets packaged, froze and stored or shipped.

Nutritional Values About Fruit Juice Concentrate
Compared to not-from-concentrate juice, the actual concentrated forms of similar fruit juice provide equal nutritional content. However, much like dried fruit, one serving size of non diluted concentrate juice compared to an equal serving size of not-from-concentrate juice will greatly differ in nutritional content. Once the concentrated juice has been reconstituted, its nutritional content is similar to freshly squeezed juice. A study found that concentrated orange juice obtained by using the reverse osmosis method maintained its nutritional elements. Once the juice has been reconstituted, an 8 oz serving has 110 calories and 27 g of carbohydrate, which is the same as bottled orange juice. The protein content is removed in the prepared concentrated juice, but the vitamin C content has increased to 160% from 70% in the bottled juice.
