Our Pomegranate Juice NFC is elaborated with pomegranates from a tree called Punica Granatum. The seeds are hard on the inside and the head is covered by a juicy, red or pink, acid pulp.
Pomegranate Juice NFC is processed and pasteurized by flash heating immediately after squeezing the fruit, without removing the water content from the juice. NFC is never concentrated. Transportation costs are therefore higher since, in order to ship an equivalent volume of NFC compared to FCOJ, six times the volume must be shipped.
NFC can be stored frozen or chilled for at least a year.
