Harvest Calendar

The seasonality of individual fruit harvests will vary, sometimes significantly, between years, world hemispheres, countries and even geographical regions within a single country. This table is designed to provide a rough guide to when fruits are generally harvested for processing, comparing Northern and Southern hemispheres.


Conversion Calculator

Our Excel spreadsheet is designed to provide a simple set of common mathematical calculations relating to fruit juice, puree, etc., all in one convenient location. Feel free to download and save this for use at your leisure.


Minimum °Brix Values

Minimum °brix values for NFC Juices, Juice from Concentrate and Fruit Nectars are defined by international regulatory authorities. Our pdf document provides a single source of reference covering most of the fruits that are commonly used within the beverage industry.


°Brix to GPL

°Brix in simple terms is a measure of the sugars content of an aqueous solution. This table allows the simple conversion from a known °brix level to the number of grams per litre of sucrose in a solution.


°Brix to Density/Specific Gravity

The specific gravity of a liquid is the relative weight of that liquid compared to an equal volume of water. Since sugars are heavier than water, one litre of a solution containing sugars (fruit juice for example) will have a weight greater than one kilogram. This table provides conversions from measured °brix levels to the weight of one litre of a solution.


Acidity Corrections

Acid levels in a solution will directly affect the reading obtained from a refractometer measurement of the °brix level. An adjustment factor must therefore be applied to the measurement obtained in order to establish a true °brix level. This table details the adjustment factors required for acid levels measured as anhydrous citric acid.


Incoterms 200 Table

Incoterms 2000 are a series of international sales terms, published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) which also effectively correspond to the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. These terms are widely used in international commercial transactions. Our table is designed to provide the simplest possible confirmation of the relative responsibilities of the seller and the buyer in each case.
