Bergamot is a citrus fruit which has a light green flesh covered in green/yellow peel and the peel is very thick. Bergamot is mainly grown in Italy in the Calabria region.
Bergamot Pulp with Peel is an aseptic product which is processed by the peel and the pulp being separated. The peel is cooked before being cut into strips and the pulp is smashed and pips are removed. Both are mixed back together in the correct proportions and go through the pasteurisation process. The product is subjected to as little heat as possible to ensure it tastes fresh and not cooked.
We can supply the peel cuts in lots of different sizes ranging from 1.5mm right through to 7mm. Most common cut is a 1.5mm which is a thin cut and a popular thick cut size is a 6x25mm. Please ask us for a full list of peel cut sizes.
We source all our Bergamot Pulp and Peel from our supplier in Spain. We can supply Bergamot Pulp with Peel in Conventional or Organic grade.
