What is the difference between nectar and a 100% juice?
Both are drinks with a high fruit content and that's what distinguishes them from soft drinks and water.
Nectar can have between 25 and 99% of fruit, with the minimum legal limits defined depending on the type of fruit. For example, the minimum fruit threshold for peach nectar is 50%, while that for mango nectar is 25%.
100% juices are those that consist only of fruit juice, with no added water.
Our main raw material is fruit, its concentrates or pulps. We have juices made from concentrates and others made from pulps. Some of the popular flavoured pulps such as peach and pear are made in our factory, that is, we receive the trucks with fruit directly from the orchard and extract the pulp, always respecting the highest quality standards. Once the pulp or concentrate is obtained, we make the blend, that is, the mixture that will result in the final juice. Finally, pasteurization and packaging is carried out under strict aseptic conditions.

Is there a maximum consumption limit for fruit juices?
First of all, it should be emphasized that Compal juices and nectars are made essentially from fruit, a food that is beneficial to health and whose low consumption is pointed out by the World Health Organization as one of the main causes of health problems.
When we talk about limits, we cannot say that there is a defined maximum consumption pattern, since each person has their own health status, and metabolisms differ a lot between individuals. This question should always be posed within a specific case, not a generic one, so these questions should be addressed to the family doctor, who will be the most qualified person to know the clinical condition of the person in question, and if this same clinical condition imposes limits on the consumption of certain foods.
Do your juices and nectars spoil outside the cold?
Our juices and nectars are natural and made from fruit. As they have no preservatives, they lose their nutritional properties and deteriorate if, after being opened, they are not stored in a positively cool place.
