Pomegranate contains various amino acid and 2 antioxidant components—Polyphenols and Anthocyanin. The calcium, magnesium, zinc and other mineral substances can supplement water to the human skin and make it more tender and smooth. Pomegranate also has significant medical value. Pomegranates can be eaten directly or processed into palatable pomegranate juice. It is one of the most difficult fruits to process. Learn the process of making pomegranate juice below!
Pomegranate juice production process
1. Pomegranate sorting
Use a fruit sorter to get rid of those diseased, rotten and unripe pomegranates. Fruit sorting is a necessary step to ensure the quality of final fruit juice.
When fruits are transmitted to the fruit sorter, they start to roll over and move forward under the rotating of the rolling bar. At the same time, the staffs standing aside inspect every side of the fruits and pick out the defective ones. Then the qualified pomegranates will be transmitted to the fruit washer.
2. Pomegranate washing
Pomegranates will inevitably stick to some dust or soil during the process of picking and transportation. These need to be cleaned, otherwise it may affect the next process. This requires an industrial pomegranate cleaning machine, which can effectively remove pomegranates. Dust and dirt on the surface can play a role in sterilization and disinfection.
3. Pomegranate peeling
The pomegranate is covered with a thick skin, which must be removed, because the skin contains soluble substances with bad flavors. In industry, a pomegranate peeling machine can be used to quickly remove the pomegranate skin.
To improve the efficiency of pomegranate processing, there are specialized pomegranate peeling machine. It is composed of a hopper, crusher, separating drum, drive system and rack. The washed fruits are fed to the hopper by a conveyor, then they are broken into 4 pieces by the crusher. After that, the skin and seeds get separated in the separating drum.
4. Pomegranate seeds extraction
The pomegranate pressing uses a pomegranate juicer, which can quickly turn pomegranate seeds into pomegranate juice, saving time and effort.
After the peels are removed, pomegranate seeds are fed into the spiral juice extractor. There is a screw shaft pushing them forward to the diminishing cavity, where they are extracted into juice under high pressure. The extracted juice flows into a container through the screener, while the kernels and slag are expelled through the ring clearance at the end of the machine.
Spiral juice extractor adopts stainless steel in the parts that connect with raw materials. It can realize slag removal automatically. The closed structure prevent the oxidation of juice, and preserve the taste and nutrition content as much as possible.
5. Pomegranate juice filtration
The suspended solids contained in the pomegranate juice obtained after pressing must be removed and obtained through a filter. Then send the pomegranate juice to the ingredient tank, make ingredients according to the recipe, add some additives to prevent it from entering the ingredient tank, and supplement the remaining water in the formula, and stir well.
6. Sterilization and filling
The purpose of sterilization is to eliminate microorganisms to avoid fermentation, and the second is to destroy enzymes to avoid changes.
7. Sealing and labeling
After canning, it can be quickly sealed and labelled, and it can be sold.
