  • Separation in home-canned tomato products

    Home-canned tomato products separate because of a natural enzyme action. There is an enzyme in raw tomatoes that acts to break down the pectin that holds tomato cells together. As soon as tomatoes are chopped or crushed and the enzyme is exposed to air, it starts to work breaking down the pectin. This causes the solids and liquids in the finished product to separate.
