Everything you need to know about comminuted products
May 11, 2023
Comminuted products are positioned as a perfect solution in the food and beverage industry thanks to the complete use of fruit.
What are comminuted products?
Comminuted products are thick, aseptic products that result from processing and concentrating fruit.It is a puree derived from whole citrus fruits. Unlike other juices and purees, which are made from whole fruits, citrus fruits are produced from the endocarp without including the outer layers. However, when comminute is produced, all these parts are included by a mechanical process that converts them directly into pulp. The final product is sieved to get rid of the seeds and, in some cases, can be processed with other fruit puree to give it a unique flavour, according to each customer’s needs.
With comminuted, 100% of the fruit can be utilised as everything is used in the process. It has a unique competitive advantage as it uses all of the fruit and thus achieves an exceptional flavour.
What is the difference between purees and comminuted?
Most purees are made with only the fresh part of the fruit (the rest of the fruit can be used for other products such as peels or citrus essential oils), but comminuted fruit uses the whole fruit. All parts of the fruit undergo a mechanical process that turns them into pulp.
