Mango Pulp Processing Flow
Raw material treatment
In this process, we must separate superior, qualified and defective mangos with fruit sorting machine. Different quality are suitable for making varied end-products. To make mango pulp, the pectin and acid content should be around 1%. If the raw materials don’t reach this level, additional fruit pectin and acid is required. As for the selected mangos, they have to go through cleaning processes to remove the purities and pesticide residues.
Mango peeling and pitting
The interfusion of mango peel and core will greatly influence the taste of mango pulp, they must be removed completely before mango pulping. Our self-developed mango pulping and destoning machine is specialized in mango processing. It is able to peel and pit mango simultaneously, with the pulp recovery rate up to 99.5%. The equipment is made of stainless steel, remember to clean and sterilize it before mango processing.
Under the function of crushing and centrifuging of mango pulping machine, mangos are processed into fluid form. The mango pulping machine adopts enclosed structure as a way to avoid mango pulp oxidation, thus preserving the taste and nutrition of the raw materials. The mango pulp made by this machine present uniform texture, high thickness and fine granule.
Mango pulp precook
Usually, crude mango pulp need heating to soften the content and promote its taste. Before heating please remember to clean the tools thoroughly. As you pour the mango pulp into the container, keep stirring it to let the pectin fully leak out. The temperature rise up high in the beginning. You have to limit the heating time to under 10 minutes, or the color would go dark and the taste would go bad.
Blending with batching
After heating and batching, the mango pulp can be added with certain proportion of batches. Generally, the pure mango pulp should take up 40%-50%. Among all batches, sugar is supposed to be 45%-60%, the quantity of fruit pectin and acid must be measured in line with raw materials. Add proper volume of pectin, agar and citric acid to make the pectin content in end products between 0.4% and 0.9%, and the acid content from 0.4% to 1.0%. The feeding sequence is syrup, pectin fluid and citric acid after 10-min heating.
Sweetening concentration refers to eliminate most of the water content in mango pulp by heating, so that the sugar, pectin and citrus acid are interpenetrate uniformly and thus improve the pulp texture and flavor.
Filling sterilization and cooling
After mango pulp is concentrated by heating, fill it into cans at once. Make sure the container is clean, sterilized by steam and the moisture is drained. Keep the temperature of cans over 40 ℃, and the temperature of pulp between 80℃ and 90℃ during filling process. The sterilization process is taken in steam environment for 5 to 10 minutes right after can sealing, then the cans are cooled to under 38℃.
