Ketchup Seasoning Recipe

Mixing Process:

  1. Make a pre-blend of the dry ingredients (Sugar +Salt + Modified Starch +Sodium Benzoate +Potassium Sorbate + Ketchup Sauce Flavouring).
  2. Add the pre-blend to the water, stir till homogeneous.
  3. Add tomato paste and vinegar.
  4. Heat till 90°C, holding time 1 min.
  5. Fill off hot in a well-sealed clean glass bottle.
  6. Cool down till 20°C.

Important NOTES:

  1. It’s best to use Hot Break Tomato Paste instead of Cold Break to get the best texture.
  2. The recipe can be modified if tomato paste with a different Brix is used, according to the following equation: Amount of paste required = 19% * 29 / actual Brix, taking into consideration the amount of water in the recipe. For example, if Tomato paste with actual Brix of 21 is used, the new amount of tomato paste will be 19%*29/21=26.2%. This difference of 7.2% (26.2%-19%) should be deducted from the water which will become 46.8%
  3. Tomato ketchup should not have less than 25 % of total soluble solids and you can refer to your national standards and regulation.
  4. In the case of packaging in glass bottles you can not add a preservative (Sodium Benzoate) But if you are going to use polyethylene packaging such as Jerrycan, you should add sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate in doses that comply with the Codex General Standard for Food Additives (GSFA)
  5. It is preferred to use treated water (TDS < 500).
  6. The flavor dose is based on flavour strength and your organoleptic evaluation and supplier dosage recommendation.
  7. To increase the viscosity of the product, xanthan gum can be added.
