What is melon concentrate?
Melon concentrate is made by juicing the melon flesh, then heating the juice to remove much of the fruit’s water content.
The concentrate, smaller in volume but six times stronger than a regular juice, can then be transported and stored more easily, before it is restored to regular strength by re-adding the water at the final processing point.
Contrary to popular belief, juices from concentrate do still bring nutritional benefits, with many of the fruit’s original nutrients remaining intact despite the additional processing.
