Innovations in tomato processing

Tomato processing technologies have advanced considerably in recent years, integrating solutions that optimize production and increase the quality of the final product.

Notable innovations include:

  • High Hydrostatic Pressure (HHP) Techniques

High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) is a technology that uses high-pressure water to inactivate pathogenic microorganisms and enzymes that can deteriorate tomatoes. This technique better preserves the characteristics of tomatoes. organoleptic qualities of the productsuch as flavor, color and texture, compared to traditional thermal pasteurization methods.

  • Microwave assisted thermal processing

Microwave assisted thermal processing is another emerging technology that is gaining ground in the food industry, this method combines microwave heating with conventional heat to significantly reduce processing time and improve energy efficiency.

This technology minimizes the loss of nutrients and maintains the quality of the tomato. Companies like Emerson They have developed advanced equipment that incorporates this technology, allowing for more sustainable and high-quality production.

Competitive advantages and sustainability

The adoption of these technologies not only improves the quality of the final product, but also provides significant competitive advantages for companies; high hydrostatic pressure, for example, allows for the production of safer food with a longer shelf life, resulting in less waste and a more efficient supply chain.

Similarly, thermal processing Microwave-assisted processing reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions, contributing to the industry’s sustainability goals.

Success stories in the food industry

A notable example of success in the implementation of advanced tomato processing technologies is the case of La Costeña preservesa Mexican company that has incorporated both HHP and microwave assisted processing into its production.

Thanks to these innovations, the company has managed not only to improve the quality and safety of its products, but also to increase its competitiveness in the international market.

In this sense, the development and adoption of advanced tomato processing technologies represent a significant advance for the food industry. These innovations allow companies to improve the quality of their products, increase production efficiency and contribute to environmental sustainability.
