EVAPORATORS FOR FOOD CONCENTRATION
Our food concentration systems employ the evaporation method, which consists in eliminating a part of the water contained in a fluid food, by evaporating it (boiling) in order to obtain a concentrated product.
The concentration of food achieves a reduction of the Water Activity (Aw) of the food to values between 0.6 and 0.8 (intermediate humidity), with these values of Aw the development of microorganisms and the speed of chemical, biochemical and enzymatic reactions are they reduce, but they are not inhibited.
Therefore, concentrated products require preservative adjuvant techniques: Refrigeration, Freezing, Heat Treatment and Vacuum Packaging, Addition of preservatives, Etc.
There are three methods to concentrate food:
- By water removal
- Evaporation Concentration
- Membrane Concentration (Reverse Osmosis)
- Concentration by Freezing (Crio-concentration)
- By adding solids
- Adding sugar (jams, jellies, ties, crystallized fruit)
- Addition of hydrocolloids (stabilized fruit)
- Adding salt (meat and salted fish)
- By adding solids + Water removal
- Adding sugar + Evaporation (condensed milk)
