How is apricot concentrate made?
Once the apricots are harvested, they are juiced – and that juice is then heated until the liquid evaporates. This leaves a thick, condensed solution six times the strength of a juice.
Easier to transport in large quantity, the concentrated apricot solution then has the water re-added at the manufacturer’s end, restoring it to apricot juice.

Is apricot juice concentrate good for you?
High in vitamins and minerals but low in calories, apricots have an excellent nutritional profile. They are an excellent source of antioxidants, notably rich in potassium and in vitamins A, C, and E.
While apricot concentrate is a more processed product than NFC apricot juice, much of this nutritional value is still retained.
What is apricot juice concentrate best used for?
An ideal ingredient for apricot-based juice drinks or juice blends, apricot concentrate can also be used by food manufacturers in the creation of apricot jams, desserts or bakery products. Due the product’s natural sweetness, it can also be useful as a sweetening ingredient.
For optimum flavour and sweet apricot scent, you might want to use apricot concentrate in conjunction with apricot aroma – a by-product of the concentration process.
Why choose apricot concentrate over NFC apricot juice?
Apricot concentrate offers an affordable and versatile alternative to NFC apricot juice, while still delivering delicious flavour and excellent nutrition.
With the water removed from the juice, it’s easier to store and transport in bulk. The water can then be added back to create a regular strength juice, or the concentrate can be used for other purposes.
It may not be as natural a product as NFC juice, but using apricot concentrate still enables food and drink manufacturers to label their product as containing ‘real fruit juice’.
