Oregon Fruit Releases Pomegranate Puree for Craft Brewing

SALEM, Ore. — Oregon Fruit Products LLC today released its winter limited-edition Fruit for Fermentation puree: Pomegranate.  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.

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,” said 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.”
