Stanton Orchards Montmorency Tart Cherry Concentrate is a 100% pure, all natural product. There is absolutely nothing added. No additives, preservatives, food color, or sugar is added. As a 68 Brix soluble solid content, our concentrate is totally fat free, cholesterol–free, and very low in sodium. Each one ounce serving contains 80 calories and provides 19 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of protein as well as 8 mg of calcium and 202 mg of potassium. Our Montmorency Tart Cherries are freshly harvested at the peak of their ripeness. Then they are pitted, filtered, flash-pasteurized and then cold filled. We DO NOT pasteurize our concentrate a second time during the bottling process because this significantly or in some cases completely eliminates the levels of nutrients in the product.
