How is kiwi concentrate made?
The outer peel of the kiwi fruit is discarded, before the flesh is juiced in just the same way way as an NFC juice. However, this juice is then heated to remove a significant proportion of the kiwi’s water content.
This leaves a thick, condensed solution around six times the strength of a regular juice, but much smaller in volume – making it easier to transport and store in bulk. When it reaches its final processing point, the concentrate can be used as is, or the water can be re-added to the kiwi concentrate, bringing it back to regular strength.

What are the health benefits of kiwi juice?
It is a common misconception that concentrate juice is less healthy than NFC juice, but the truth is that they both manage to retain similar nutritional values.
The kiwi fruit didn’t earn its superfood status through being tasty! Kiwis have one of the highest vitamin C counts for all fruit – just 2 kiwis constitute your daily vitamin C intake! They are also packed with vitamins A, E and B6, antioxidants and fibre which can help to improve digestion.
What is kiwi juice concentrate good for?
Aside from their great nutritional values, kiwis are a very popular tangy yet sweet fruit that is commonly used to make healthy juices and smoothies in the drinks manufacturing industry. Kiwi juice concentrate is great for any health products, given their superfood status.
What is the difference between concentrate and not from concentrate kiwi juice?
Kiwi juice concentrate is made by pressing fresh kiwis and juicing the pulp. This is then heated, so the liquid evaporates. This leaves a thick solution, which is much stronger than normal juice. When it reaches your final point, you can either use it (as it is) or simply add water to bring it back to its original strength.
On the other hand, NFC (not from concentrate) juices are produced without water removal and heating, which results in a less processed and therefore more ‘natural’ juice. The
downside of NFC juices is that they normally have a shorter shelf life and take up more volume in terms of storage.
