Fruit Aromas (Esters)
Fruit Aromas, also known as Esters are made from distilling the volatiles from the Fruit Juice Concentration process.
*This is a technical process involving many stages. The typical process is to hammer-mill the quality-checked and cleaned fruit, then crush it. It is then pasteurised, pressed, and processed through a centrifuge. Then comes the essence recovery and evaporation, before filtration, cooling and aspetic packing.
The concentration of these products are described as folds. The Aromas we offer are generally 150-fold, meaning that 150kg of fruit is required to produce 1kg of Aroma.
Fruit Aromas like these can be re-added to Juice Concentrates and to finished products without declaration. They are generally only used in the beverage industry for both alcoholic and soft drinks.
