Fruit Juice & Concentrates

The Al Shams Agro Group processing plant has ample capacity to produce Orange, Tomato, Mango, Guava, Apricot, Strawberry, Peach and Pomegranate concentrates. In addition – and this is a first in Egypt and the Middle East - it can produce "Not From Concentrate" juice (NFC). The chemical specifications are shown in the tables below, along with the production calendar, packaging and shipping information.

Chemical Specifications

Fruit Pulp

Not From Concentrate (NFC) is squeezed, pasteurized and filtered juice, filled into aseptic storage where the oxygen is stripped from the product. Alternatively, the juice can be frozen immediately after processing and kept for more than a year.
Product Brix % pH Value Acidity Ratio
Orange 11 - 12 3.30 - 3.70 0.70 - 1.0 11 - 17
Mango 14 -16 3.7 - 4.10 ≤ 0.80 ≥ 17.5
Guava 7 - 9 3.90 - 4.30 ≤ 0.32 ≥ 21.8
Pomegranate 15 - 16 3.0 - 3.70 0.25 - 0.65 23 - 64
Strawberry 7 - 9 3.50 - 3.90 ≤ 0.80 ≥ 8.75
Apricot 12 - 14 3.10 - 3.50 ≤ 2.50 ≥ 4.80
Peach 10 - 12 3.40 - 3.80 ≤ 1.0 ≥ 10.0

Fruit Concentrates

Concentrated juice is useful because it extends the shelf life of the juice and makes storage and shipping more economical. Juice is concentrated in an evaporator which uses steam to heat the juice under vacuum and to force water evaporation.
