Title (EN) FRUIT SNACK
(FR) TABLETTE AUX FRUITS
Abstract:
(EN) A packaged, shelf-stable, gelled natural fruit pulp, wherein the natural pectins of said fruit pulp have been substantially demethoxylated by the action of a pectinmethylesterase enzyme under ultra-high pressure (UHP) conditions. Also provided is a method of preparation of a packaged, ambient-stable, natural fruit product comprising the following steps: (a) comminuting a fresh fruit to provide a first fresh fruit pulp; (b) adding a pectin methylesterase (PME) enzyme to the first fresh fruit pulp; (c) packaging the first fresh fruit pulp and PME in a sealed, substantially oxygen- impermeable container; (d) incubating the fresh fruit pulp and PME at ultra-high pressure (UHP) to demethoxylate natural fruit pectins in said pulp and thereby convert the pulp to a dimensionally stable gel bar and render the product shelf-stable.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une pulpe de fruit naturel gélifiée, emballée et stable à l’entreposage dans laquelle les pectines naturelles de ladite pulpe de fruit ont été sensiblement déméthoxylatées par l’action d’une enzyme de la pectine méthylestérase dans des conditions de pression ultra-haute (PUH). L’invention porte également sur un procédé de préparation d’un produit à base de fruit naturel emballé et stable à l’air ambiant qui consiste à : (a) broyer un fruit frais afin d’obtenir une première pulpe de fruit frais ; (b) ajouter une enzyme de pectine méthylestérase (PME) à la première pulpe de fruit frais ; (c) emballer la première pulpe de fruit frais et la PME dans un récipient scellé sensiblement imperméable à l’oxygène ; (d) incuber la pulpe de fruit frais et la PME à une pression ultra-haute (PUH) afin de déméthoxylater les pectines du fruit naturel dans ladite pulpe et ainsi convertir la pulpe en une barre gélifiée aux dimensions stables et rendre le produit stable à l’entreposage.
