How is QG nectar made?
QG nectar is currently the next best thing to fresh QG - it contains only QG fruit. While the nectar is cold-pressed, at the moment it must be pasteurised prior to filling and storage. We are working on alternative methods of preserving QG (e.g. HPP) to provide a different taste and quality experience for consumers.
How much QG nectar should I drink each day?
...drink as much as you can. We cannot make consumption recommendations until we have completed further human health research so, really, it is up to the individual to decide how much they wish to drink.
How many plums are there in a bottle of nectar?
We do not count them as they go in but estimate that there are about 3 plums per bottle.

The nectar provides a consumption option when the fresh fruit is out of season while the probiotic powder is meant to be used to introduce beneficial bacteria to your stomach...they are completely different products intended to be used for different purposes.
Can I give QG nectar to my dog?
Certainly - people do and some have reported significant weight loss in their favourite pooch...however, my dog will not touch it.
