Lemonade and Limeade accolades!
Dream Foods’ Premium JuicesPremium, not-from-concentrate, organic, kosher, glass-bottled Italian Volcano® juices include organic blood orange, tangerine and lemon juices from Sicily. The red pigmentation of the blood orange contains a higher concentration of Vitamin C than a regular orange. A glass of Italian Volcano® Orange Juice can have twice the Vitamin C as a glass of regular orange juice, according to the Italian National Health Institute. In addition, the red pigments in the pulp contain flavonoids, called anthocyanins, which are free radical scavengers and act as powerful anti-oxidants.
Dream Foods International also offers Volcano Lemon Burst® and Volcano Lime Burst®. These plastic squeeze bottles of juice are a “dream” because they are:
- made with organic lemons and organic limes;
- produced with not-from-concentrate juice;
- made with no fillers or artificial ingredients;
- packaged with essential oils in the bottle cap, which adds the natural zest of freshly-picked citrus to every squeeze;
- longer-lasting and less messy to use than fresh lemons and limes.

Dream Foods Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How are Dream Food products a part of a healthy diet?
A: Italian Volcano® juices are a good source of vitamin C. Among all citrus, blood oranges, are the richest in vitamin C, with almost twice the levels of the average for navel oranges. In addition, the red pigments in the pulp contain flavonoids called anthocyanins which are free radical scavengers and act as powerful anti-oxidants.
Q: Are Dream Food products kosher? Who certifies them?
A: Yes Dream Food products are kosher. They are certified by Itchak David Margalit, the Chief Rabbi of Trieste in Italy.
Q: Is Dream Food packaging recyclable?
A: Dream Foods juice products that are packaged in glass containers can be recycled through your local recycling centers.
Q: What do the words “not-from-concentrate” mean?
A: “Not-from-concentrate” means that these juices have not been reconstituted with water. Dream Food juices come from 100% certified organic blood oranges, tangerines, lemons and limes. In order to secure the freshest flavor possible, the citrus is squeezed immediately after harvest and pasteurized giving the product a longer shelf-life. The juices are then shipped immediately to the United States to ensure their freshness for your consumption.
Q: Why is the red color of Italian Volcano® Orange Juice special?
A: Italian Volcano® Orange Juice has a red or violet color that develops inside the oranges. This color means two things. First, it means that the flavor can have berry overtones, and the overall taste is flavorful and feels less acidic. Second, this red color contains antioxidants, so they are great for your health, especially during winter when the cold and flu season requires your immune system to be in top condition.
Q: Does Italian Volcano® Orange Juice have the same amount of Vitamin C as regular orange juice?
A: It has more! The red pigmentation of the blood orange contains a higher concentration of Vitamin C than a regular orange. A glass of Italian Volcano® Orange Juice can have twice the Vitamin C as a glass of regular orange juice, according to the Italian National Health Institute.
Q: Are Dream Food juices pasteurized?
A: Yes, all juice products are pasteurized to ensure that they are safe for consumers. This heating process eliminates the possibility of harmful bacteria. Please remember to refrigerate after opening to maintain freshness.
Q: Do Dream Food juices have added sugar?
A: There is no sugar added to any Dream Food products, nor do they add any concentrated sweeteners.
Q: How long can I store Dream Food drinks?
A: You can find the expiration date on the top of every bottle cap. Once opened, the juices should be capped and refrigerated, and may be kept up to a week or 10 days.

DREAM FOODS INTERNATIONAL, LLC
Dream Foods International specializes in organic varietal citrus juices, which are bottled near the Mt. Etna volcano in Sicily where we work with local growers and artisan factories to batch produce our juices for distribution across the USA. All of our products are organic, kosher and made with not-fromconcentrate juices. We have intimate knowledge of Sicilian Citrus — from the farm to the supermarket. We spend time every year at Sicilian citrus farms to better understand seasonal variations as well as the environmental affects that the active Mt. Etna Volcano has on citrus.
The company was founded in 1998 and began by importing fresh blood oranges (Volcano® Oranges) into the United States. In response to volcanic activity at Mt. Etna, and because large amounts of oranges were being sent to processors, the company introduced an organic blood orange juice called Italian Volcano® Orange Juice. Made in the traditional manner of “Succo di Arancia Rossa,” this organic product immediately found national distribution, primarily at gourmet, specialty and natural foods stores. This was followed by tangerine and lemon juice.
All of the citrus fruits used to make our juices are harvested by hand and processed immediately. The company also introduced the first organic version of the widely recognized lemon and lime squeeze bottles under the brand Volcano Lemon Burst® and Volcano Lime Burst®. This product line has received national recognition because of the high quality of the flavor resulting from the innovative inclusion of essential oils (zest) in the product cap.
Dream Foods International is a woman owned and managed company. The company is a member of the NASFT, Produce Marketing Association, Organic Trade Association, The Southeast and Northeast Produce Councils, The Fresh Produce & Floral Council and co-founded the Los Angeles Fine Food Entrepreneur Group. The company's products have received recognition in SELF Magazine, The New York Times, Boston Herald, La Cucina Italiana, Beverage World, Today's Grocer, the Jewish Press and other publications as well as on national radio shows.
