Oregon Fruit Products LLC has been releasing some great speciality purees for adventurous brewers out there all year and just announced its winter limited-edition Fruit for Fermentation puree: Pomegranate. The puree has a tart, vibrant flavor, crimson-red color and smooth consistency that makes it ideal for adding flavor, aroma and texture of real fruit to a variety of fermented beverages, such as beer, cider, mead, spirits, wine and kombucha.
Like all Fruit for Fermentation purees, Pomegranate has no added sugar, preservatives or additives and is packaged aseptically for shelf-stability and ease of use.
“As we wrap up 2017, this seasonally-appropriate release is a great ending to another fun year of new and innovative fruit purees,” said Chris Hodge, director of sales for fermentation at Oregon Fruit Products. “The fruit for this puree was just harvested in October using California-grown pomegranates. With its intense color, bright aroma and balanced, sweet/tart flavor, we are looking forward to tasting how our brewers make the most of it.”
All of Oregon Specialty Fruit purees are aseptically packaged to ensure shelf-stable, clean fruit brewers can count on. The product is minimally processed to ensure the best fresh fruit flavor and color. Most of the purees have a shelf life of 18 months in ambient temperature. Oregon Fruit’s pomegranate puree is now available in 42-pound bag-in-box. The product is certified kosher, made in the U.S.A., non-GMO, gluten-free and vegetarian. Oregon Fruit Products does not use, nor does it allow, any of the eight major allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat) in the products or processing areas.
