Tomato ketchup is a condiment made by mixing concentrated tomato paste with water, sugar, vinegar, salt and seasonings. The tomato paste is typically manufactured using the “Hot Break” method. With this method, pulped tomatoes are heated to 90˚C (200˚F). This preserves the pectin that is found naturally in tomatoes, but some of the aroma and color are lost.
In this video, we will show you how you can manufacture tomato ketchups using a Silverson mixer.
