u003cstrong data-rich-text-format-boundary=u0022trueu0022u003eConcentration occurs through evaporationu003c/strongu003e within a vacuum inside stainless steel tanks. The temperature of 65°C helps to retain the flavor properties of the product before it moves on to the pasteurization stage.
The passata is ready for packaging once it has been heated to around u003cstrongu003e92°Cu003c/strongu003e to ensure that it is microbiologically stable. The bottles are filled while the passata is still hot, left for several seconds at 92°C, then cooled in water.
