Tomato juice:

Tomato juice is prepared from red, healthy tomatoes without being bruised or crushed. In producing this product, tomatoes should be washed and separated well. Tomato juice contains a lot of pectin, which effectively preserves the product. Pectin prevents precipitation and spoilage of tomato juice solids. Tomato juice has a lower acid percentage and is more sensitive than other tomato products. Therefore, more care should be taken during production and maintenance to maintain its health. Usually, about 0.5% salt is added to tomatoes to improve the taste and tomato juice packs are filled under heat and in the shortest possible time.

Tomato powder:

Tomato powder is widely used in the food industry and in producing prepared foods. To prepare tomato powder, after washing and disinfecting tomatoes should be dried with industrial dryers using additives then powdered. The advantages of tomato powder include:

Lightweight, accessible transportation.

More manageable packaging and storage.

Lower price.

Longer shelf life.

Reduced tomato waste in different seasons.

Tomato powder is mainly used for industrial purposes. One of the most critical issues and problems of preparing tomato powder is maintaining its red color and preventing it from turning brown during the process and storage. Materials such as calcium compounds and some salts are used to prepare this valuable substance to be effective.

Tomato Paste and its importance in the food industry:

Undoubtedly, tomato paste is the most important seasoning for preparing food from tomato products. Tomato paste is tomatoes turned into a thick, red substance that dissolves more easily.

After a modest decline in consumption volume from 2007-2009, consumption resumed an upward trend, rising sharply until 2013 and increasing exponentially over the following four years. In recent years, statistics show that tomato paste production is one of the most profitable production lines in food markets.

As a result, it is essential to know how this unique seasoning is produced. In general, the production of tomato paste includes preparation and washing, crushing and dehydrating, and cooking and thickening.

Preparation and washing:

In the first step, washing is done after choosing the right tomatoes for the production of tomato paste. Tomatoes enter in bulk or baskets into particular washing basins to be completely soaked and washed under water pressure. In some cases, bubble makers are used for better washing. In the last washing stage, the tomatoes pass under the water showers. Meanwhile, the cleaning team separates crushed or rotten tomatoes from other products a pure and quality product reaches the next stage. The name of this stage in the factory is sorting. The sorting step prevents the transfer of fungi, bacteria, dust, extra substances, and spoiled tomatoes. After this stage, the tomatoes are ready to be transferred to the eating and dehydrating stage.

Cooking and condensing:

After the watering phase peerless tomato juice and pulp are stored in a tank before the cooking and condensing phase. This unique reservoir has a stirrer that prevents the 2 stages of tomato juice. After this step, tomato juice is introduced into the transporters into the thickeners. Increasing temperature and thickening is the last step in the production of tomato paste. A paste condenser should be used to convert purified tomato juice into a paste. One of the most common devices for condensing tomato juice at low capacity is the paste. For high degrees of the condensers is the county of Nevis. The continuous machine uses a plate and tube system to thicken tomato juice. The device uses vacuum evaporators to remove excess water ,so that condensation can be done in a shorter time and  lower temperatures. This low temperature improves tomato paste’s color app, clearance, and qualitative properties. After this step, tomato paste is ready for packaging.
