Product Questions And Answers

Q: How long will this last in the fridge?
A: The shelf life of the puree will be around 3 days refrigerated and 12 months frozen.

Q: Is it pasteurized? Can it be re-frozen once thawed?
A: The Ravifruit purees are not pasteurized. We recommend against refreezing the puree multiple times, but refreezing it once or twice should not be an issue.

Q: How many pounds of fruit does it take to get the 2.2 lb tub of purée you sell? I have a recipe that requires 5-6 lb of fruit and would need to convert. Thanks

85% of the fruit is usable so there will be used roughly 2.58 lbs of fruit to get 2.2 lbs of puree.

Q: What kind of sugar is added? Regular granulated, artificial, lactose, frutose etc? I ask because I am planning on brewing a beer with this and the type of sugar added will impact the brewing process. Thank you for your help.
A: Ravifruit use cane sugar in their fruit purees, so it would be sucrose sugar.

Q: please explains the composition of the sugar added and why it is added. Thank you
A: The sugar comes from from the fruit itself, and it is serves primarily as a preservative, as fruit purees without sugar added tend to oxidize rapidly. Sugar also has the effect of helping the fruit hold its color and flavor, as well as making the puree smoother.
