Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate Benefits

Mar 09
Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate According to the material published by experts in the cherry industry, it takes the juice of approximately 100 tart cherries to make just one ounce of tart cherry juice concentrate. This a great news since this means just a single ounce is packed full of antioxidants that help to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In this post, I would like to share four areas consumers may want to consider when buying cherry juice concentrate. Here is a brief over view of the these areas
  • Type of cherry that is used to produce the juice
  • The quality of the tart cherry juice concentrate
  • Packaging of the product
  • Sediment-free guarantee
Type of Cherry that is Used to Produce the Juice: A number of different varieties or types of cherries exist in the market today. These different types include sweet, balaton, maraschino, montmorency, tart and more. Although all of these varieties are from the cherry family, much of the research published in the last 10 years or so on the natural health benefits of cherries has been conducted on the Montmorency tart cherries. So if you’re looking for the type of cherry that has highest amount of recently published research, you’ll probably want to stick with the Montmorency tart cherry. The Quality of the Concentrate: Unfortunately, not all tart cherry juice concentrate products are the same. The first area to consider and is important in the overall quality of the final products is the brix count. Brix (pronounced bricks) is one of the measurements of the overall quality of tart cherry juice concentrate. The brix is the measurement of the amount of naturally occurring sugar in the cherry juice. Cherry juice is usually measured at 68 brix. Be sure to be aware of the brix level in any cherry product you buy and try make sure it is of 68 brix. The brix information should be printed on the product label or published on the website. At Traverse Bay Farms we use 68 brix levels in our products. In addition to the brix amount, you may also want to inquiry about the acidity level. This is how much acid is in the product. The higher the acid, the more sharp will be the final taste. However, since cherry juice is a natural product and not a man-made product these markers may naturally vary from year to year in the final product, keep in mind this is only a guide to help you make an educated decision when you buy cherry juice concentrate. Packaging of the Final Product: For the most part, concentrate is available in plastic bottles, aluminum cans, plastic-lined cardboard single shot containers and glass bottles. The biggest factor for our company when we began was the quality of the final product to the customer that is why we chose the glass bottle. The reason is simple, there is no plastic leaching when food products are packed in glass bottles. Plastic leaching is commonly known on the food industry. This means the food inside of the plastic bottle actually begins to pull or leach plastic molecules from the container back into the food. Thus, if you’re purchasing a 100% natural product, why would you consume a product that may contain leached plastic molecules? In addition, our cherry juice is designed to be shelf stable and shipped without refrigeration. Sediment-Free Guarantee: The last area to consider is the sedimentation affect. Sedimentation is a concern for many cherry juice drinkers. Sedimentation occurs when the concentrate breaks apart and thick residue settles on the bottom of the bottle. Sedimentation may be a result of poor quality concentrate, poor bottling process, poor shipping and storage. Look for cherry juice products that offer a sediment free guarantee. So the next time you’re looking for sediment-free, plastic leaching free and 68 brix cherry juice concentrate, grab a glass of Fruit Advantage Cherry Juice.
