How Do We Ensure the Best Flavor? 

From farm to table, we work hard to ensure that Vita-Pakt California Fine Select Shredded Orange Peel exceeds your flavor expectations. This begins with our growers. We partner with multigenerational farmers who are committed to using safe and sustainable growing practices. Our oranges are produced right here in sunny California under the most stringent guidelines in the world to offer the best-tasting fruit for your products. Vita-Pakt’s California Fine Select Shredded Orange Peel

Vita-Pakt’s Shredded Orange Peel is sustainably sourced and processed. All the fruit that we process has been rescued from food waste streams, and it is minimally processed to retain its natural qualities for the end product. With established procedures in place at our GFSI-certified production facilities, we ensure that the value of our oranges is not lost through drying and processing. This results in the highest quality product for our customer base. 

The orange peel is shaved and shredded to exact specifications and then pasteurized and chilled prior to freezing. We ensure the product contains more of the albedo, or the white outer part of the orange fruit, than our extra fine peel. The albedo provides enhanced texture—as well as additional health benefits—for your culinary creations.
