What’s that in my Wacky Apple Fruit Punch?
What is that in my Wacky Apple fruit punch juice?
We have been receiving some inquiries lately regarding the sediment in the bottom of the Fruit Punch juice cups. Some of our customers are concerned that gunk in the bottom of the cup may be mold, or something that we obviously shouldn’t be consuming. YIKES! That is the LAST thing we would ever want our customers thinking, so let me take me minute to explain.
Please know, some sediment is normal in the Fruit Punch as the natural pineapple juice we use has some pulp in it and it sinks to the bottom of the cups. As the pineapple oxidizes (like when you leave a fresh cut apple out and it turns brown, same idea!) the pulp from the pineapple changes color. It gets its weird color when we mix it with the blackberry and apple juice, and it often turns an orange/green color. It’s like magic…or like when your kids mix the yellow, blue, pink, and orange paint together. Anyway, we mix up huge batches of juice when we make it, so some of the cups end up with more sediment than others. When it sits on the shelf at the store for awhile, that pulp/sediment settles to the bottom.
Actually, the fact that it settles to the bottom is a good thing. Naturally occurring sediment sinks and mold floats. Good future knowledge for you with any product or science experiment you or your family may leave in the fridge.
