Improving the yield of standardized tomato paste

Tomato processing equipmentFor over two decades, Admix has been helping hundreds of food processors reduce the total cost of ownership for their sanitary mixing equipment. Whatever crop farmers harvest, whatever prepared food, beverage, sauce, or dairy product consumers put in their mouths, chances are good that we’ve mixed up a batch or two of it. 

Today we’ll focus on tomatoes, specifically tomato paste. According to the USDA, the U.S. is second only to China in tomato production with over $2 billion in annual farm cash receipts. In addition, 2014 was a record year for the California tomato processing industry. The largest tomato crop in history was recorded with over 14 million tons harvested at a yield of over 48 tons per acre.

To deliver 100% homogeneity and Brix measurement of standardized paste in under 5 minutes, we recommend the Rotosolver high shear mixer. With the Rotosolver, there are no unmixed lumps in the final product, plus you get our process assurance guarantee. The Rotosolver has been tested across hundreds of other ingredients and many industries including beverage, dairy, meat and poultry, and dressings and sauces and our applications expertise shows.

In addition to the Rotosolver, the Boston Shearmill inline homogenizer can also be used to reintroduce pomace before the finishers to further increase yields, improve Bostwick, reduce syneresis, and improve overall product quality.
