Oregon Fruit Products releases Pomegranate Puree for Brewing

By  | 

Oregon Fruit Products LLC, purveyors of fine aseptic purees for beer, cider and more have just released a  winter limited-edition Pomegranate puree.  The puree has a tart, vibrant flavor, crimson-red color, and smooth consistency that makes it ideal for adding flavor, aroma and texture of real fruit to a variety of fermented beverages, such as beer, cider, mead, spirits, wine and kombucha.

More from a press release:

Like all Fruit for Fermentation purees, Pomegranate has no added sugar, preservatives or additives, and is packaged aseptically for shelf-stability and ease of use.

“As we wrap up 2017, this seasonally-appropriate release is a great ending to another fun year of new and innovative fruit purees,” says Chris Hodge, director of sales for fermentation at Oregon Fruit Products. “The fruit for this puree was just harvested in October using California-grown pomegranates. With its intense color, bright aroma and balanced, sweet/tart flavor, we are looking forward to tasting how our brewers make the most of it.”
