Passion fruit is delicious, but the juice is hard to extract. “Not anymore!” says the Agriculture Council. They’ve developed a new machine that saves people all the mess and hassle.
Passion fruit is a favorite flavoring in Taiwan’s beverage scene. It’s no wonder, considering the tropical fruit is sweet, tangy, and a whole lot of nutrition. But, passion fruit juice is surprisingly troublesome to extract.
Doing it by hand is slow and messy. Some people choose to crush passion fruit using hand presses, but the quality of the juice produced by that method is inconsistent. It can also cause pesticides on the fruit’s skin to leak into the final product.
To get around these common problems, Taiwan’s Council of Agricultural Affairs has developed a quick and easy way to get at that sweet passion fruit juice. The fruit is first loaded into a machine, which drills through the top and sucks out the juice. This machine is the first of its kind in the world.
The Council of Agricultural Affairs says that if they scaled down the size of the machine, it might be feasible for drink shops and supermarkets to use. It’d be a REAL timesaver!
No hassle, no mess, no problem!
