Grated orange and lemon peel from Sandro Vanini taste just like fresh fruits. The gentle processing combined with very high fruit contents creates a distinctive flavour. Fresh fruits can be preserved by candying, which retains the fruit's natural flavour and intensifies the aromatic taste. Sandro Vanini offers an extensive range of candied fruits.
