San Joaquin Figs, Inc. takes pride in consistently producing high quality dried fig ingredients for its industrial customers. Our tenure in the industry has given us the time to develop expertise and understanding in what it takes to make dried fig ingredients work for our customers.
We start with detailed incoming testing which surpasses industry standards. We test, sort and classify our incoming products carefully to ensure the raw materials are utilized in the proper product. Throughout our process we inspect and test our products to ensure they meet specification.

Part of the process of ordering ingredients is ensuring the product will work in your application. We at SJF understand that and we work with our customers to find the right product we offer or to create a custom product if needed.

Fig Paste

Fig Paste

Available in 40 lb and 80 lb fiber cases, Fig paste is our higest selling item. Fig paste is created by washing figs, blending varieties to meet flavor and color requirements, and grinding the product through a 7/64” grinder plate and smaller. No two customers are the same, and we are able to formulate our product in custom specifications to meet your needs. We also have specialized equipment to create seedless fig paste – paste that has been crushed after it has been ground to achive a finer mill with less crunch from the seeds.
Fig paste has been traditionally used in fig cookies, energy and health food bars, as well as spreads, sauces, jams and fruit fillings. It can provide a natural sweetness, pleasing mouth feel, and adds fiber and calcium to your manufactured item. Fig Paste is very dense, and can be difficult to work into a flowable solution without a powerful mixer. Contact us for a spec sheet or to ask questions about what kind of fig paste would be right for you.

Fig Concentrate

Fig Concentrate

We have Fig Concentrate available in 55 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails. Fig concentrate is created by taking the sweetest varieties of dried figs, infusing them with water, removing the insoluble fibers, and evaporating the solution down to 70 brix.
Fig Concentrate has been used as a flowable sweetener, to make sauces, to flavor tobacco, and as a humectant in baked goods. Fig Concentrate has a powerful molasses flavor with a hint of spice at the end. Contact us to find out if Nutra-Fig Fig Concentrate can work in your application.
