Naturally rich in ions, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium, the energy juice ensures a high nutrient and low calory intake boosting vitality and resistance. It comes in a recyclable eco-friendly packaging made of cardboard (sizes: 20cl, 33cl and 75cl) labelled in English, French, Dutch and Italian. This is an up-to-date product in line with current consumer trends (healthy food, ethically made products etc.)
As for the fruit pulp, it is available in different forms (eg. powder, flour) and can be used as an ingredient or raw material in the food and pharmaceutical industry. It is suitable for manufacturing gluten-free and low-calory products.
