Inventors: Jorge Manuel Rodrigues de Carvalho, Remígio de Matos Machado, João Manuel de Almeida Rodrigues

Applicant: Instituto Superior Técnico

The present invention relates to an integrated process for recovering tomato juice from tomato pomace as well as biologically dehydrating and stabilizing it. The innovative process developed involves four main steps: separation by dissolution in an aqueous matrix compatible with human feed, solid-liquid separation, filtration cake washing and thermal dehydration. The tomato juice resulting from the developed process is intended to be incorporated into the tomato concentrates of the tomato: processing industry. The dehydrated tomato pomace is a biologically stable product and can be used in ruminant and non-ruminant animal feed and as raw material for biotechnological and pharmaceutical applications.
