Hi to everyone
I am working in sugar boiled confectionery products. in process, we are passing the syrup through 80 mesh for filtering the physical contamination like dust, stone. We used to follow two methodology to validate the CCP and the same is mentioned below. Kindly suggest any other methodology to validate 80 mesh.
1. Ash content of over – flow and under –flow of samples were checked and compared to observe reduction in ash content after filtration.
2. Syrup sample contaminated with sand powder of various particle sizes. Filtered through 80 mesh filter and the particle size in the filtered sample was checked. to ensure that no particle of size above 177 microns in present in the filtrate.
Thanks in Advance.
