Concentrate of apple juice
Concentrated juice is obtained by processing the fresh squeezed juice of direct pressing. To do this, the fresh squeezed juice is concentrated by the following method – evaporation of water. The evaporation technology: the natural juice is heated on special baking trays, but is not brought to the boiling point, because boiling simply destroys all the useful substances. It turns out a substance very similar to a viscous jam. Then this mass (concentrate) is packed in aseptic kegs or tankers, frozen and sent to the customer.
As a rule, neither sugar or other sweeteners are added to the concentrated juices.
