What's the difference between confitures and jam?

Confitures consist of at least 45% fruit, which is cooked in sugar.


During the cooking process, the mixture thickens until the sugar congeals. Confitures
are rich in texture and made of whole or roughly chopped fruit, which maintains its
original shape even after being stewed.


This differs from the process of making jam, which contains 35% fruit and in which
the fruit is crushed or mashed during cooking until a uniform puree is obtained,
without any lumps of fruit.


Yad Mordechai’s fruit purees contain 100% natural fruit cooked with fructose,
containing no white sugar, flavoring agents or any other additives.
