Oregon Fruit Products LLC is a manufacturer of fruit purees for the craft beverage market. The company recently announced its latest seasonal release, Kiwi Puree. Maybe you read that in our headline. Packaged for the fermented beverage manufacturing market, Kiwi Puree is prepared from ripe, firm kiwi, offering a clean, refreshing aroma, and is 100 percent real fruit with no preservatives and no additives. How would you use it to brew?
Oregon Fruit Products Kiwi Puree adds real fruit character, aroma, and texture to beer, wine, spirits, kombucha, soda or any number of fermented or flavored beverages. On the palate, it’s bright and lively, delicately tropical, with notes of juicy star fruit, melon and banana. This puree will be a welcome addition for craft brewers wanting a fresh flavor profile in kettle sours, IPAs, blonds, kolschs or golden ales, and is delicious married with other fruit purees like mango or pink guava.
“Customers are seeking out new, adventurous innovations to satisfy the tastes of their customers,” said Chris Hodge, Director of Sales. “Introducing Kiwi Puree now in time for the fresh spring and summer seasons is going to result in some very exciting beverage launches,” he added.
The limited supply release of Kiwi Puree is available in 42-lb aseptic BIB (bag in box), and because Oregon Fruit Products’ purees are made with the highest quality fruit and processed into aseptic packaging, brewers are finding it a convenient, high quality and more consistent alternative to fresh or frozen fruit. Aseptic products are flash heated at ultra-high temperatures for a very short time to minimize microbes in the fruit puree. The product is cooled quickly to maintain the best fresh fruit flavor and color. Additionally, the majority of Oregon Fruit Products’ purees have a shelf life of 18 months in ambient temperature.
Oregon Fruit Products has been servicing the craft and commercial brewing industry for over 30 years with its fruit for fermentation line of aseptic purees, providing fermented beverage makers clean, fresh fruit flavor in a convenient format — without the work or the worry of introducing inconsistencies that sometimes come with using fresh or frozen fruit.
The product is 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. Learn more right here.
