Information @ a Glance

General

  • Canning is a method of preserving food where the food is sealed in an airtight container. It prevents microorganisms from entering and proliferating inside.

  • When fruits are canned, they are heated hot enough and long enough to destroy spoilage organisms. This heating (or processing) also stops the action of enzymes.

  • Fruits may be canned in water, juice or a sweet syrup. The sweet syrup helps the fruit holds its shape, color and flavor but does not preserve the fruit.

Process

  • Only two processing methods are recommended for canning food. These are the boiling water bath and the steam pressure canner.

  • The boiling water bath method may be used to process high-acid foods. These foods can be safely processed at 212 degrees F (100 C), the maximum obtainable temperature in a water bath canner at sea level.

  • A steam pressure canner is used to process foods under pressure at a temperature of 240 degrees F (116 C). This is the only reliable method to safely process low-acid foods.

Market

  • The Canning Industry is of great importance to South Africa as it directly employs many thousands of people, mainly in rural areas.

  • The foreign exchange earned by the industry’s exports is important to South Africa as a developing country.

  • Apples comprise the second largest share of canned fruit.
