The original Hero Fruit Spread,recipe draws heavily on Swiss tradition and a vision for conserving and sharing the goodness of nature, which includes sustainable fruit sourcing and low heat preparation that highlights fuller fruit taste. Hero fruit spreads are 100% natural: they contain no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, and they are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.
Its founders were committed to preserving fruits as gently and carefully as possible, and that vision still guides the family-owned company today.
But just What is the difference between “Fruit Spread” and “Fruit Preserves”?
The answer may surprise you.
On fruit spreads vs preserves: The difference is, Fruit Spreads contain More Fruit.
“Fruit jams/ preserves contain 40 to 44% fruit – but Hero is a fruit spread, containing over 50% fruit .”
The FDA’s standard of identity makes the rule that products in this category containing 40-44% fruit, must be labeled as “fruit jams/preserves. Because Hero’s fruit content exceeds this 40-44% it is labelled as a “Fruit spread”.
More Variety like Black or Red Currant, Bitter Orange, in addition to ever popular fruit varieties like, Black Cherry or Red Raspberry.
Natural Ingredients – all of which is why Hero Fruit Spreads are preferred by professional chefs!
