The patent application (Publication Number: US20230371557A1) describes a method for producing concentrated juice by continuously concentrating vegetable or fruit juice and enzymatically processing it simultaneously or in parallel with the concentration step. The process involves adding enzymes to the juice during or before the concentration step, with the enzymes optimized for temperature and pH ranges specific to the juice being processed. The concentration and enzymatic processing steps are carried out within specific time frames, and preheating of the ingredients may be done before the enzymatic processing step.

Furthermore, the patent application also covers a method for modifying concentrated juice using a similar process of continuous concentration and enzymatic processing of vegetable or fruit juice. Enzymes are added during or before the concentration step, with specific temperature and pH ranges to optimize the enzymatic processing. The addition of enzymes, along with the concentration process, allows for the modification of the concentrated juice to achieve desired characteristics. Overall, the methods outlined in the patent application provide a systematic approach to producing and modifying concentrated juice using enzymatic processing in conjunction with concentration techniques.
