The pomegranate juice concentrate is our last creation and has been elaborated with a new method developed during the last 3 years with our own technology. The result is a promegranate juice concentrate with no seeds. The base of this pomegranate juice concentrate is especially recommended for drinks in dilution indication of 1:3 to obtain a final beverage with 13º Brix.
The Spanish pomegranate juice concentrate is known to be one of the best pomegranates in the world. Spain is one of the main pomegranate producers at a global level and the biggest exporter in Europe. The current surface of pomegranate trees in Spain exceeds 2.500 hectares and the production is close to 20.000 tonnes. LemonConcentrate collects the promegranates in Murcia which is one of the locations in Spain with the highest quality of this kind of fruit, as well as being one of the main producers.
Our pomegranates come from the tree called Punica granatum. The typical pomegranate of this tree is called balausta. The seeds are angular and hard on the inside, the outer layer of the head is covered by a thin layer or juicy, red, pink or yellowish-white, acid pulp, and the diameter of the fruit is between 5 and 8 cm.
Pomegranate juice concentrate: main qualities and uses
In addition, the pomegranate juice concentrate has been lately investigated for its antioxidant qualities. In fact, it has about three times more antioxidants than red wine or green tea. It is important to add that 70% of the antioxidants of this fruit is located in its peel, that’s why our concentrates preserve always the skin of the pomegranate, not to loose any of those properties. This makes it ideal for the elaboration of pure pomegranate juice as well as for the combination of the pomegranate with any other fruit in order to increase their benefits.
The pomegranate juice concentrate can be used to elaborate a large list of different products, such as pomegranate ice cream; pomegranate sweets; pomegranate sodas; or even pomegranate beer.
