The Perfect Purée products are all natural and developed to be unique and add value for professionals in the foodservice and beverage industry as well as to food-savvy cooking enthusiasts.
Pureed fruits and vegetables have long been produced by hand by classically trained chefs as a staple kitchen ingredient. When European prepared purees were first introduced in America’s professional kitchens in the late 1970's, chefs readily integrated them into their cooking. Chefs constantly seek innovative ways to keep costs low while still offering top quality. Most professional kitchens simply cannot afford the added time and cost associated with hand-prepared purees. Often produce prices, availability and quality fluctuations hinder restaurants from providing a complete array of hand made purees year-round.
Today, the California-made The Perfect Purée is the premium puree product on the market. It is the preferred staple ingredient of chefs, pastry chefs and mixologists for its outstanding attributes.
Perhaps The Perfect Purée’s incredible acclaim and ever growing demand stem from its uncompromising quality, variety of flavors, responsive customer service, and competitive pricing. Strict standards and processing specifications for Brix, fruit pectin, and pH produce “a puree that doesn’t taste like it is stretched or contains additives…The Perfect Purée captures the fresh flavor of the real fruit,” raves Executive Chef Fred Mensinga of the Anaheim Hilton in California.
The succulent, single-note flavors inspire everything from muffins to marinades, salad dressings to sauces, cakes to cookies, canapés to cocktails, and sorbets to smoothies. We’ve even created delectable recipes that showcase our delicious products in appetizers, main dishes, accompaniments, salads, desserts, sweets and beverages that feature global influences like Asian, Latin, and Caribbean.
We continually look for new flavors and welcome suggestions. Some of our original flavors remain our most popular, such as Red Raspberry, Mango, and Strawberry. New favorites are Carmelized Pineapple and Fruit of the Cocoa. Culinary professionals can order our complete line through our network of specialty, produce, and general food service distributors in North America, including Canada and Mexico.

“The Perfect Purée is a fantastic line with great American flavors. They have a fresh, clean taste and the perfect consistency for any application. From sauce painting to ice cream making, they just work magic into any dessert. Now tell me where else would you find flavors like Blackberry or Prickly Pear?” says Wayne Harley Brachman, one of Pastry Art & Design Magazine’s “Top 10 Pastry Chefs in the US,” author of Retro Desserts and American Desserts.
