Ceres takes pride in the purity of its products. Pure fruit juices contain 100 percent fruit juice. They have no added sugar, and no artificial preservatives or colors. Many juices start with a pear juice base with distinctive flavors added in the form of additional juices and purees. The purees are made by mashing the fruit to create a creamy paste or thick liquid consisting of pure fruit. Examples of blends include Secrets of the Valley, which combines pear, apple, and cherry and black currant juices. Medley of Fruits contains pear juice, guava puree, pineapple juice, papaya puree, mango puree, peach puree and passion fruit juice.
Much of the fruit that makes these beverages so flavorful is grown in the lush Ceres Valley, which is named for the Roman goddess of fruitfulness and located near the tip of South Africa. More exotic fruit comes from sources around the globe. Using processes that are environmentally responsible, Ceres flash pasteurizes beverages and then pours them into sterilized packaging.
