Natural and concentrated pome fruit purées find diverse applications in a range of food products, including smoothies, mixed juices, nectars, baby food, jams, fruit preparations, pastry fillings, yogurt, and ice cream.
Purées differ significantly from juices due to the involvement of highly viscous pulp throughout the processing steps. This poses a comprehensive challenge for the equipment used. SAEI offers a comprehensive range of fruit processing equipment, encompassing sorting conveyors, pulpers, and filling lines, specifically designed for processing pome fruits such as apples, pears, nashi, and quince into high-quality purées.
In the preparation of pome fruits for pulping, a grating mill can be utilized to finely grind them into a mash. The resulting mash then passes through a pulper finisher, which extracts a liquid purée free from seeds, skin, and fibers.
To maximize the efficiency of the pulping process, it is carried out in double stages. During this process, the purée may incorporate air, necessitating its passage through a deaerator to preserve the color and flavor of the fresh fruit. Additionally, the purée can undergo homogenization to increase its viscosity.
Our fruit processing solutions prioritize gentle treatment of the pome fruit purée, ensuring optimal utilization and extracting the best possible quality from the fruit.
