Juice types

Juices can be categorised by four criteria. The first one is the type of material used, where we can distinguish between fruit, vegetable and fruit-vegetable juices. The second is the type of semi-finished product, where we can distinguish fresh juices and juices reproduced from condensed purées.

We can distinguish: clear, naturally cloudy and purées.
