Industrial drinks and their preparation steps

Industrial drinks and their preparation steps

Industrial drinks are solutions made of water and sugar, in addition to some substances which are added in order to modify and improve the flavor and taste such as organic acids and materials that add color, taste and smell

The industrial drink is one of the drinks with low nutritional value and is characterized by a high degree of sugar in it. The concentration of dissolved solids in the final product ranges from 60 to 70, or according to certain standards related to the product.

Ingredients for industrial drink

1- Water

 The water that enter the manufacturing process must be clean, pure, suitable for consumption and free from alkali, as it affects the acidity of the final product.

2- Sugar

 sugar gives the sweet taste , it is a source of energy and a preservative agent for the drink
sugar is added in two forms:
It is added only as sucrose, or as a mixture of sucrose and commercial glucose

3- Acidic substances

 These materials give the drink a delicious acid taste and increase the preservation period, it is added in varying proportions according to specific standards, provided that it does not exceed 6 g per kg of sugar, and various acids such as malic and tartaric are added.

4- flavorings

A- Natural flavorings are used such as flavorings that are extracted from fruits, flowers, buds, leaves and many other plant parts

B- Industrial flavorings These flavorings are extracted from organic materials and are chemically similar to natural flavorings.

5- Colorants

These colorings are either artificial or natural and they must be permissible food coloring

Conditions that must be met by industrial syrups

  • The percentage of dissolved solids should not be less than 65%.
  • Intense color and taste, as these characteristics are controlled by adding appropriate concentrations of flavorings and colorings to the drink
  • The acidity ratio should not be more than 1.5 as measured as citric acid
  • The percentage of arsenic and lead contained in the industrial syrup should not exceed 0.5 ppm , parts per million
  • It is possible to add 0.1% sodium benzoate and sulfur dioxide up to 70 ppm as preservatives

Method and steps for preparing industrial syrup

Industrial drinks are prepared according to the following method:

  • Prepare a sugar solution at a concentration of 60 to 70%, and this is done in suitable containers, and then the sugar solution is filtered to get rid of the impurities
  • Adding citric acid for the sour taste and modifying the sweet taste ,it is added in a small percentage not exceeding a few grams per kilogram of sugar
  • Adding preservatives, as they work to prevent the growth of microorganisms. Preservatives are added to the syrup at a rate of 1.3 g per liter of syrup
  • liquid solution. The desired colorant is added after dissolving it with a little water
  • Flavoring is added to the syrup from 1.5-3 cm3 / L or according to the manufacturers instructions
  • Add vitamin C, which is added to increase the nutritional value of the drink and prevent oxidation
  • Pasteurization: The syrup is pasteurized at temperatures of 85 - 90 degrees Celsius to prevent spoilage of the syrup and thus it can be preserved for long periods of time.
  • The syrup is filled in glass or cardboard containers then we add the product's identification card (Nutrition facts label) such as the name of the drink, the names of flavoring materials and colorings used in the manufacture of industrial syrups, the percentage of the sugary substance and its type, the name of the manufacturer, date of manufacture and expiration

The industrial drink is low nutritional quality comparatively with natural syrup

flavorings, colorings, acids, and the pasteurization process, if they are not done correctly, accurately, and with healthy conditions, which are considered harmful and lead to the corruption of the drink in a short time
