Apples Yield in juice after settling
Those results are confirming the observations in B.C. More
experiments need to be conducted, but the expectation for yield
improvement is 10 to 20 per cent.
Based on an average cost of $80 per bin (390 kg) for lower
grade fruit and a yield of 75 per cent, the cost in fruit per litre of
clear juice is about $0.27 per litre. The cost of the flash process
depends significantly on the volume to be treated. For a small
batch like the one treated in Quebec, the cost of the treatment is
about $0.40 per litre.
The thermo-flash technique has probably little interest for
fresh apple cider production, but may be a great option for pro-cessing
stored and lesser grade apples. Based on the 2020 cam-paign,
it is too early to draw any definitive conclusions, but the
preliminary results are encouraging enough to further investigate.
At the very least, the thermo-flash technology seems to be widen-ing
the realm of possibilities.
