Do you need to refrigerate the syrup before you consume it?

Do you need to refrigerate the syrups after opening it?

What do we mean by saying we don’t use concentrates or extracts ?
Concentrates and extracts are heavily processed and refined, they are a shortcut for brands that don’t have the means to pick, macerate, strain and mix the syrups themselves. That means they have more residues and less nutritional benefits. We use a one step process where we create our syrups from plants we have handpicked or harvested, or from fruit we have hand squeezed or strained by gently macerating (cold maceration) or strain the fruit and mix them into
Do you use added chemical preservatives, artificial colours or juice concentrates?

What do you do to preserve your products?
Our syrups are pasteurized. This is a traditional way of preserving plant products and that means we heat the syrup to 84 C and fill them while they are hot.
Why do I sometimes see sediments or layers in the syrup bottle ?
Our syrups are made of fruit juice and pulp or flowers and leaves of plants. These have pollen, protein and other natural components that go into the syrup. Since we do not use additives to stabilize or clear the syrups you can sometimes see the sediments of pollen, plant resign and other natural components. It is best to shake the bottle to get all of its components mixed again.
Is Agropošta syrup vegan and gluten free?
