Do you know the methods of preparing traditional and modern pomegranate paste?
Pomegranate paste production has been common in Iran since ancient times and is still being produced. Of course, it should be noted that the preparation of this product is still more in the traditional style, and companies such as Esalat Food Industries are always trying to produce the best pomegranate paste and deliver it to consumers.
The traditional method of preparing pomegranate paste is as follows:
It is washing, peeling, dehydration and concentrating in which the peeling operation is done by hand and mechanically. In this way, the pomegranates are first kicked and then the pulp is removed by hand pressure. In some parts of the country, they are pressed with special tools for fruits. Dehydration can also be done with pressed and half-peeled pomegranate. After dehydration, the pomegranate juice is placed in large containers and heated directly with the lid open to thicken. It is then stored in pomegranate paste in glass or plastic containers. Concentration in open door containers using direct heat changes the color and taste and ultimately reduces the quality of pomegranate paste.
The modern method of preparing pomegranate paste is as follows:
In the industrial method, first healthy pomegranates with the desired quality are selected. Then the dust and waste materials are washed away. After washing, the fruit is pressed with the skin in a press machine and pomegranate juice is extracted completely and hygienically. There are different types of presses, but in the case of juicing fruits such as pomegranates or other citrus fruits, a special press with a suitable pressure is used, because if the pressure is too high, more tannins (a kind of pulp) enter the pomegranate juice from the skin. And will greatly reduce the quality of the resulting pomegranate paste. Then, the water extracted from the pomegranate is placed in a special device called a cooking pot with a vacuum for a few minutes at low temperatures to perform the concentration process. They are then immediately poured into glass containers and packed in a vacuum.
Important aspects in determining the quality and authenticity of any food product include taste, color, odor, nutritional value and texture. In the quality of pomegranate paste due to its liquidity and its addition to other foods, the texture is not very important, but the consistency of the paste is very important. The effective compounds in the smell and part of the taste that are present in pomegranate paste, like any other food, are mostly volatile, and in the case where pomegranate juice is concentrated into paste, it evaporates before water and leaves the product, unless Distillation, remove the vapors and add essential oil to the final product. Other components of the taste are non-volatile, but some of them are converted to other compounds by chemical reactions during the concentration process. Finally, part of the taste is due to these reactions.
