It can also be used in puddings, bakery fillings, fruit meals for children and to flavour delicious ice creams, yoghurt and confectionery.
The exotic aroma of the product makes it suitable for blending with mango pulp of other kinds of beverages.
A BRIEF LOOK AT GUAVA PULP PRODUCTION:
Guavas are sorted before placed for washing.
Fully ripened, firm and sound Guavas are first washed in washer for elimination of mud, leaves and other foreign particles.
After washing Guavas are again sorted on the sorting conveyor where decayed parts are trimmed off with the sharp knives.
Sorted Guavas then pass through a brusher, where rotating nylon brushes remove all external impurities and at the same time shower washing makes Guavas perfectly clean.
By means of an elevator, Guavas are fed into the chopper to prepare a creamy mesh.
Heat treatment is given to the pulp to soften the tissues, minimize microbial load & enzymatic activities.
The pulp is transferred to the super creamers where it is passed first through refiner and then super refiner to separate the seed and other particles, giving it a very fine homogeneous creamy texture.
The refined pulp is then fed into the mixing tanks and transferred to the Deairator for the removal of air.
The pulp is then treated with thermal-shock in the Sterilizer where almost all the microorganisms get killed and a state of complete sterility is achieved. Following the application of heat the product is immediately cooled down to prevent any kind of browning reactions.
The cool and sterilized Guava pulp now enters in to the highly sophisticated aseptic filler where it is filled in 210 kg 4 layer aseptic bag packed in steel drum.
