Reasonable and controlled pasteurisation to preserve the authentic taste and properties of the fruit
All Pressoirs de Provence products are preserved by pasteurisation. Because of the delicate nature of fruit juice, it can only be kept for a few hours at room temperature, as soon as it leaves the press, it undergoes reasonable and controlled pasteurisation. This is to respect the nutritional benefits and flavour characteristics of the original fruit. It rids the juice of its main culprits (yeasts, moulds, bacteria) while blocking any oxidation phenomena that could alter the initial colour and taste of the juice.
At Pressoirs de Provence, bottling takes place immediately following pasteurisation. The faster we bottle, the more we preserve the delicate flavour and freshness of the fruit.
