Villages of the item receive from mature high-quality fruits, to-rye previously crush, heat (blanch), sometimes subject to influence of fermental pectolytic drugs, electric current. The main way of extraction of juice is pressing. The extracted juice is settled or separated. At production of the clarified juice for removal of suspended particles juice processes fermental drugs, solutions of a tannin or gelatin. At production of juice with pulp and liquid fruits suspended particles do not delete. For improvement of tastes and aroma add sugar syrup to juice or mix juice of different fruits.

Content of potassium (see) in apricot, grape, apple, carrot, tomato juice makes 200 — 300 mg / 100 of S. items play an important role in providing a diet with microelements: iron, copper, manganese, etc. (see Microelements). Unlike fruits in S. the item is less than cellulose (it almost completely remains in juice with pulp and liquid fruits), pectic substances, ascorbic to - you (for 25 — 50%). The known value in food the items which are contained in S. have polyphenols (anthocyans, tanning agents, etc.), the essential oils, fragrant substances defining S.'s aroma of the item.

Not divorced S. items oppress secretion of a pancreas, and the juice divorced water, on the contrary, strengthens department of pancreatic juice at simultaneous increase in it in trypsin, a lipase, amylase.

Freshly cooked S. of the item — a product unstable. Heat treatment of juice shall be minimum for preservation of useful and flavoring properties of fruits, but sufficient for destruction of yeast and bacteria. It is allowed to preserve the pages of the item intended for the subsequent industrial processing alcohol (10 — 25%), sulphurous anhydride (to 0,1%), sorbic to - that (to 0,06%). Tinned S. of the item can remain long vrekhmya (till 1 year) without essential changes (see. Conservation, foodstuff ). Negative influence on S.'s quality of the item is rendered by oxygen of air and light, defiant discolorations, taste, aroma. For the prevention of such changes of S. of the item it is recommended to package in a light-protective container, as much as possible using its volume or filling the free space with inert gas.

The main requirements to tinned S.' quality of the item are determined by GOST. The mass of nonvolatile solids (on a refraktomer) shall make in various juice not less than 8 — 14%, total acid (in terms of apple to - that) — to fluctuate in the limits defined for each type of juice, the content of alcohol is allowed no more than 0,3 — 0,5%, copper — no more than 5 mg/l, tin — no more than 100 mg! l (in the juice packaged in cans).

Fruit juice finds broad application in baby food. They are nice to the taste, increase appetite, are easily acquired by an organism of the child. Use of juice stimulates motility of intestines in food of the child, increases secretion of a gastric juice, enzymes of a pancreas and department of bile, keeps exchange processes at optimum level, provides an organism with mineral substances and vitaminakhm, promotes fuller digestion of the main food ingredients arriving with other food stuffs.

Inclusion of enough juice in a diet of the child from 3 — 4 week age plays a large role in prevention of rickets (see), hypotrophies (see), anemk (see), exudative diathesis (see. Exudative and catarral diathesis). From juice the first appoint apple, then since one and a half months — blackcurrant, cherry, since two months — plum, apricot, carrot, garnet, since three months — tomato, crimson, strawberry, orange, tangerine, lemon. At the use of separate types of juice the child can have an individual intolerance, edges is shown by skin rashes or increase of a chair.

More often than others side effect juice of a citrus, and also strawberry therefore to children with exudative diathesis this juice is not appointed possesses. It is not recommended to give to children aged up to one year grape juice since it strengthens fermentation in intestines and causes a meteorism. Very acid and tart juice parts with boiled water and slightly sweetens with sugar syrup.

Sanitary inspection (see) behind production and S.'s quality of the item includes control for a gigabyte. conditions of production, dignity. quality of the processed raw materials and finished goods (organoleptic properties, a copper content, tin, lead and other heavy metals). In raw materials define residual amounts of pesticides, to-rye shall not exceed the established M3 of the USSR of the maximum sizes.

Methods lab. control are established by the corresponding GOST and the official documents M3 of the USSR.
