Goodness By The Bottle.
Reminicent of Homemade.
We carefully select our varietal blend to hit just the right balance of sweet and tart, refreshing and delicious.
We squeeze the most out of apple harvest season, working around the clock to bottle as much pure juice and concentrate as possible.
Controlled atmosphere storage suspends the apples in a state of ripeness with a specific temperature and oxygen level.
Trucks bring the apples to our inspection stations where each bin is reviewed by a quality control expert.
A four-stage wash process includes banks of high-pressure nozzles that take fruit to the squeakiest of cleans.
Fruit is broken up in a disintegrator, or big blender, before going to the decanter – which separates all the juicy goodness from the apple pieces.
We heat things up to pasteurize the juice, before it’s either bottled or made it into concentrate for blending at a later date.
Essence, or flavor of the juice is made by distilling the juice in a separator. A single gallon of essence provides flavor for 150 gallons of single strength apple juice.
Concentrate is produced in an evaporator where steam heat and a vacuum remove much of the water. The result is apple juice seven times the strength of original juice.
It takes approximately 20 apples to produce just one bottle of our 64oz not-from-concentrate apple juice!
We use a blend of popular apples to get the light color, great texture and naturally sweet flavor that we want – and our customers love.
We store the fruit at a cozy temperature until it has just the right flavor profile we’re looking for.
We wash the apples, crushing them into both large and smooth textures, then blend them together into a perfectly balanced sauce.
We cook the sauce using indirect heat to avoid flavor loss, soften the blend, release air and preserve color.
No matter how you eat it, we have a package for it – from single serve pouches, to cups, to multiserve jars, all the way to 50- or 250-gallon bags.
