Fresh PPJC (prune plum juice concentrate) has an attractive red color and a sweet light taste that makes it suitable for applications where color can be an issue. With naturally high levels of sorbitol and soluble fiber, it may be ideal for juice blends, syrups, sauces, snack foods and energy bars.
