What are the differences between squeezed juice, nectar, and concentrate?

Fruit juice is the essential drink for breakfast. However, it is sometimes difficult to find your way between pure juices, nectars, and concentrates. Version Femina explains their differences in this article!

Pure juices, nectars, and concentrates do not have the same fruit content. That’s why they don’t provide the same amount of vitamins or fiber.

100% squeezed fruit juice

It can be said that it is the juice that comes closest to the fruit. Because the fruits that make up this juice are fully and simply squeezed. There is no addition of dye, additives, or preservatives. Even if 100% squeezed juice does not provide the equivalent of a fruit’s fiber, it is considered “healthier” compared to other juices. If you want to keep a 100% squeezed juice, keep it as far away from the light as possible.

Juice based on concentrate

In this case, the fruits are also pressed. The fruits create a drink from which 80% of the water is removed through evaporation, the contents are then put in the freezer and taken to their destination. This way makes storage easy and transport costs are cheaper. The moment the drink has arrived safely, water is added to it to “recreate” the juice. Even if the composition remains similar to that of the fruit, the taste is no longer the same and nutrients are affected.

Fruit nectar

It is the juices that move away the most from the fruit because the fruits are pureed and a lot of water and sugar are added. Some nectars contain up to 20% sugar and have almost 50% water. They provide very little if any, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It is better to crowd them out of our daily consumption as much as possible.
