Apricot paste production requires impeccable cleaning of the raw material as inadequate cleaning leads to irreversible consequences. Before production, foreign material of plant and non-plant origin must be removed otherwise the paste production process, which involves crushing, can partition foreign material into smaller fragments and increase its overall level in the paste.
Apricot paste is prized by food industry actors such as fruit bar producers and pie producers who rely on it as an ingredient. This makes the absence of foreign material and the moisture level in apricot paste all the more critical because nonconformities in these two parameters can affect the shelf life of the product.

Fresh apricots are delicate and fragile fruits that bruise easily during transport. For this reason, they are often harvested before reaching full ripeness, when they are still firm and have not yet achieved their distinctive flavor.
For those who live in regions where apricots are not grown, opting for dried apricots and dried apricot paste is a convenient way to enjoy the full sweetness and nutrition of apricots.
