What is the difference between a juice that is “not from concentrate” and juice that is “from concentrate”?
The difference is in the processing method:
- In non-concentrated juice, also known as Not from Concentrate (NFC), the fruit is first juiced and the juice is then pasteurized before being packaged. The juice contains only its own natural water, without the addition or removal of any other ingredients. All Christodoulou Family juices are produced from Not from Concentrate juice.
- In concentrated juice, the fruit is juiced, while the natural water content of the juice is removed in order to produce a concentrated form. This means that water is added to the concentrate at a later stage, before the juice is pasteurized and then packaged.
