Citrus processing process:
Raw material citrus→ washing and grading → pressing and juicing→ filtering → adjustment → degassing and degreasing → pasteurization → concentration → packaging → finished product
The specific citrus processing steps are as follows:
1.Citrus washing and sorting. Choose citrus with a smooth appearance to prevent damage to the taste of citrus juice. For citrus cleaning, the citrus cleaning machine is used, which uses the bubble principle, which does not damage the surface of the citrus and cleans it.
2.Citrus extracting. When squeezing citrus, a special citrus juicer should be used to prevent impurities such as peel oil and white skin from being mixed into it. This will not only affect the taste of the finished juice, but also increase the hot odor during the heating process.
3. Filtration of citrus juice. When citrus juice is filtered, filter separation equipment is used, which can be carried out together with juice extraction, or it can be operated on a stand-alone machine.
4. Degas the citrus juice. The original citrus juice is very easy to oxidize, which will cause the color and taste of the juice to change. Therefore, it is necessary to degas and maintain the original appearance of the citrus juice.
5. Sterilization of citrus juice. In order to destroy various spoilage bacteria and various inactivated pectinase, ensure the hygienic standards of the use of fruit juice, and postpone the preservation of fruit juice, it is necessary to Citrus processing.
6. Concentrated citrus juice. Using degassing and concentrating equipment, the citrus juice is concentrated by freezing and concentrating.
7. Packaging and storage. There is no sterilization process during packaging, and there is no problem of juice deterioration due to heating.
