The utilization of guava purée extends to various finished products such as juices, smoothies, mixed juices, nectars, baby food, jams, fruit preparations, pastry fillings, yogurt, and ice cream.
The process of creating purées differs significantly from that of juices, as it involves handling highly viscous pulp throughout various stages. To overcome this challenge, our comprehensive range of fruit processing equipment is essential. It includes sorting conveyors, grating mills, pulping machines, and filling lines, all of which play a vital role in transforming guavas into high-quality, smooth, and viscous purée.
When it comes to guava fruits, fully mature ones that are soft but not overly ripe are typically processed into purée rather than extracted as pressed juice. After meticulous inspection and washing, the intact and mature guava fruits are fed into the grating mill, where they are finely mashed. The resulting mash then goes through the paddle pulper finisher to remove seeds, skin, fibers, and unripe portions, transforming it into a liquid form. Heating the guava prior to pulping can make the process easier, reduce oxidation, and stabilize cloudiness.
To maximize the efficiency of pulping, a two-stage pulping process is employed. Extra care is taken to eliminate stone cells that contribute to a grainy texture in the purée, achieved through filtration. At this stage, the purée may contain air, which is then removed by passing it through a deaerator to preserve its color and quality. Homogenization can be performed on the guava purée to increase its viscosity.
Our fruit processing solutions prioritize gentle treatment of the purée, ensuring that we extract the most and the best out of the fruit while maintaining its overall quality.
