The definition of a fruit (or vegetable) puree is a fruit or vegetable that has been cooked, ground, pressed, blended or sieved until it reaches the consistency of a creamy paste or liquid. Purees can also be frozen to last longer and our careful preparation ensures that we preserve the qualities, taste and natural goodness of the fruit or vegetables.
Fruit purees can be a healthy alternative for some unhealthy, yet vital, ingredients in your homebrewing and cooking. If you are looking to cut calories, then fruit purees can also be used to replace oil or butter in certain baked goods, which can also enhance the flavour but in a healthy way. It may offer slightly more calories than normal fruit as it is more concentrated, but the amount of vitamins, minerals and beneficial nutrients is the same. Fruit purees, as well as fruit, also offer antioxidants
that can help boost the immune system and help limit cell damage within the body.
Fruit purees can be used for a range of different things aside from homebrew your favorite beer, wine or spirits; one of the main uses and a very popular usage is within baking. It can be used as a sugar substitute as it contains the sweet flavour from the fruit but holds much more nutrition to create a healthier substitution to your favourite cakes and sweet guilty pleasures, to help you feel a lot less guilty about eating them.
The natural sugar in fruit, fructose, alongside the retained flavours, colours and smells of the fruit, create some great cakes, and fruit purees are especially successful in cakes such as carrot cake and banana cake, due to the fibre and flavouring.
