Searching for nature’s superfoods
Our story started as a journey to understand nature’s “superfoods”. Foods that have an immediate, positive and enduring positive effect on a person’s energy level and overall health.
These are typically plant-based foods that have a high energy content, packed with nutrients, electrolytes and organoleptic properties. We call the combination of these elements in the food the “vibe”.
While the concept of super-foods has been around for some time, they have been increasingly important for endurance athletes in quickly recovering from fatigue and tissue inflammation.
These foods are also key to helping the body cope better with the physical and mental stress of modern life.
Among superfoods, pineapple plays a prominent role as it is rich in energy, vitamins and minerals.
A person’s holistic wellbeing starts from healthy, natural and sustainable foods.
We use only the Mauritius pineapple variety cultivated in the Vazhakulam area and in the neighbouring districts of Kerala, India.
This pineapple variety is unique in aroma, flavour and sweetness due to its high sugar content and low acidity.
It is also a very good source of energy , carotene, vitamins and minerals and is therefore an important component of a balanced diet.
To preserve all the goodness we have developed a special production method that we call cold process.
Our exclusive “cold process” production method combines cold-pressing and blast-freezing for optimal retention of the fruits delicate taste, fragrance and nutrients.
Pineapple juice is gently extracted in our state-of-the-art facility in a controlled environment. The juice is then filled cold in high quality food grade bags and immediately blast frozen to -18 °C to preserve the product.
No heat processing means that Pinevibe retains its freshness, the sumptuous taste and conserves most of the healthy nutrients found within the fruit.
Our quality process starts from the careful selection of raw material. Only fruits that meet our stringent quality and traceability standards are used in the production of Pinevibe.
During the production cycle, we apply rigorous quality controls that meet and exceed the requirements of our HACCP certification .
The combination of using only the best pineapples and our high-quality special cold process delivers a pineapple juice that is full of nutritional benefits
Pinevibe is a source of nutrients including vitamins and minerals.
Vitamin-C, carotene and antioxidants help fight skin damage, reduce wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture.
In addition Pineapple contains Bromelain which has been traditionally associated with reducing inflammation.
