How is fig puree made?
Fruit purees are made simply by heating the raw fruit, then straining the resultant mixture through a fine sieve to yield a smooth and luxurious final product.
A largely natural product with minima processing, it’s a great way to capture the nutritional benefits of the fig, which are high in fibre and rich in essential minerals like magnesium, calcium and vitamin K.

What is fig puree used for?

Is fig puree good for you?
Kiril Mischeff purees undergo minimal processing, and therefore manage to retain the goodness and nutritional value of the fresh fruit. Figs are low in calories and full of important minerals/nutrients. Not only is this puree rich in vitamins A, C and K, but also potassium, magnesium and calcium.
Fruit purees are more viscous than juices because they contain pulp. The benefit of this extra pulp is that the puree contains a high amount of fibre and prebiotics. Dates are famous for their high fibre count, which means they are great for aiding digestion.
What is Brix in fig puree?
Brix is an industry standard for measuring the sugar content of a fruit juice, or puree. For example, a puree with 1° Brix has one gram of sugar per 100 grams of puree.
Therefore, we use Brix as an indication of sugar levels, and how sweet the product might taste. At Kiril Mischeff, we supply fig puree to the food and drinks manufacturing industry at 35° Brix.
