F A Q S

FRUIT PUREES

WHAT IS A FRUIT PUREE?

We gather the fruits from the farmers. We clean, peel and blend them to make the fruit puree. 

ARE THEY PASTEURIZED?

Yes. 

DOES IT HAVE ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS DIFFERENT THAN FRUIT?

It contains Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) that is used to avoid oxidation of the puree. Oxidation is a reaction that takes place when oxygen has access to the puree. This will change the color mostly turning it black if we do not put any Vitamin C on it. Although the aseptic bag protects the fruit puree, Vitamin C assures that this event won't takes place.

It does not contain any colorants or artificial preservatives. 

HOW TO USE IT?

​Open the box, take out the aseptic bag, cut one of the corners or the upper part of the bag and then just pour it into the tank. The bag has a valve but it is only for filling purposes.

HOW MUCH PUREE SHOULD I USE FOR BEER BREWING?

Anywhere from 1/2 lb to 2 lbs of puree per gallon. It also depends if you are going to add it during the fermentation process. In that case you add more counting on the sugars to ferment out.

WHAT IF I HAVE LEFTOVERS?

Keep it refrigerated up to three weeks. We suggest putting the leftovers in other clean and sanitized recipient (e.g. bottle) well sealed avoiding contact with oxygen.

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE?

1 Year at max 75°F. No need to freeze

3 weeks refrigerated after opening.
