A fruit puree is the result of a fine sieving of whole fruit and differs from fruit juice in that purees retain more of the components of the original whole fruit like fibre for example.
What products use fruit purees?
Many products use fruit puree as an ingredient and therefore, many companies may require the services of a fruit puree supplier. With such a wide range of applications for fruit puree it is vital to find a fruit puree supplier that understands your needs and can provide you with an appropriate product from the start.
- Cocktails: The right puree in a cocktail can be crucial, which is why a trusted fruit puree supplier should be used. With exotic fruit ranging from lychee to mangoes, fruit purees are a cost-effective option to introduce the fresh and fruity flavour into your favourite drink without the inconsistency, cost, waste and pure inconvenience of using ‘fresh’ fruit.
- Smoothies: For smoothies, fruit puree can be used to give a stronger flavour of a particular fruit, with or without the addition of the fruit’s juice. Açai puree from Brazil is an example of a popular smoothie ingredient, and is often sought after in relatively small quantities.
- Baby food: Fruit purees with very low residues of chemicals and heavy metals or indeed purely Organic origin are often required by baby food manufacturers. Baby food can be made up of fruit puree, vegetable puree, or a mixture of both. The purees ensure the baby is eating easily digestible food, whilst consuming a nutritionally sound diet. JC Dudley understands just how important it is to source exactly the correct quality of puree to meet the customer’s very high standards of traceability, and that’s why we are a fruit puree supplier that works effortlessly to provide the best purees to match the brief.
- Baked goods: Perhaps surprisingly, because of it’s fibre content and therefore mouth feel, fruit puree can be used in a number of baked goods. Additionally, there are clever ways of baking with fruit puree which can reduce the amount of fat (such as butter) needed in a recipe. Fruit puree can also be helpful as an egg substitute (such as apple puree or banana puree), which is especially helpful when making vegan or eggless cakes. Working as both a binder and a sweetener, fruit purees can be added to tarts or fruit bars, too.
Benefits of a fruit puree supplier
Using a fruit puree supplier, such as JC Dudley, is much easier than attempting to go through the hassle of making puree yourself. An expert fruit puree supplier allows you to have the flavour of fresh fruit without having to use a large amount of the fruit itself, or having the amount of fruit alter the taste or texture of your product. With the help of a good fruit puree supplier, your food or drink products can achieve the perfect flavour profile and your desired consistency. Fruit puree suppliers allow you reach the right sweetness and flavour in your product. Additionally, the puree by a fruit puree supplier is much longer lasting than fresh fruit, and can be preserved either by freezing or pasteurisation into containers of varying size depending upon batch size etc.
