Tomato sauce processing technology

A large number of fresh fruits are ripe, and the production of jams still needs to focus on two aspects

In summer, fresh melons and fruits of various colors are on the market, bringing ample supply of raw materials to the fruit deep processing market. In the fruit deep processing industry, jam is one of the main market segments. Sweet and sour jam, whether it is served with bread or mixed with yogurt, can make people appetite. There are many kinds of jams on the market, including cherry jam, strawberry jam, blueberry jam and so on. With the development of food technology, the production of jam has been able to be automated, but food safety still needs attention.

Jam has a long history of making jam. In the past, making jam was a way to preserve fruit for a long time. Nowadays, jam has become an important branch of the fruit deep processing market. Statistics from the Research Department of Statista show the sales of Canadian jams, jellies and jams by category for the 52 weeks ended January 6, 2016. During this period, Marmalade’s sales were approximately $13.79 million.

While the scale of market sales is expanding, the jam production process is also constantly upgrading. The quality of fruit raw materials is the key to jam production. Therefore, fruits should be sorted before production. The fruit is sieved through a fruit quality sorting machine, the bad fruit is sorted out, and high-quality raw materials are used for production.

After the raw material sorting is completed, it will formally enter the jam production link. The production process of jam will go through the steps of fruit washing, cutting, beating, pre-cooking, vacuum concentration, canning, sterilization, etc. The automated equipment involved includes fruit washing machine, fruit cutting machine, pulping machine, pre-cooking machine, concentrator , Filling and sealing machine, high pressure sterilization pot, etc. With the help of these highly automated equipment, the degree of automation in jam production has been greatly improved, which can present consumers with higher quality.

According to the news released by the European Union’s food and feed rapid warning system recently, a certain domestic blueberry sauce in Germany has failed in quality and safety, and glass flakes have appeared in the product. Domestic jam manufacturers should also take this as a warning, strictly regulate the production environment and production process, and take precautions.

First of all, companies must avoid pollution from the production environment. The production workshop should be built as a clean workshop that meets the standards. An air shower should also be set up at the door to prevent pollution caused by employees entering and exiting the workshop. Secondly, it is necessary to strictly sterilize the production equipment, and use the CIP cleaning system to clean and sterilize the production equipment in time to prevent cross-contamination of residues. Furthermore, the factory inspection of products cannot be ignored. Food quality and safety inspection equipment should be used to inspect various safety items. For example, X-ray foreign body inspection equipment can prevent jams containing glass shards from entering the market.

With the post-90s consumers gradually occupying the main body of the market, the consumer market for the jam industry has been further opened up. For jam manufacturers, if they want to break the monopoly, they also need to use various automated production equipment to enhance the degree of automation of production, and pay close attention to food hygiene and safety, and enhance the comprehensive competitiveness of products from many aspects.
