Everything you need to know about peach nectar
Peach nectar and peach juice are similar but different, peach nectar tends to be thicker with a more intense flavor. Fruit juices are made by extraction/filtration process while a fruit nectar is made through a puréeing process.
Peach nectar is made of ripe peaches that are peeled, pitted, and blended together with water and sugar to create a smooth, flavorful drink. Think sweet, juicy peaches but in a thick liquid form.
Juice is made by extracting the liquid from fruits or vegetables, often by pressing or crushing them, resulting in a thin, smooth liquid without pulp. Nectar, on the other hand, is made by blending whole fruits, including the pulp, resulting in a thicker and more textured drink with a more concentrated flavor.
