Processing Aids

Facilitating the production process

A processing aid is a substance used in the production of processed food, and which may end up in the finished product, but which is not required to be labeled on the food product. Our Food Experts can offer you the right products to optimize your processing conditions.

Products that can support here as processing aids are:

The use of antifoams and free-flowing agents is sometimes necessary, to either control the production process or maintain properties during storage.

Enzymes are also in most cases processing aids; being active during the production process and being inactivated in the final food product. Enzymes influence the yield, capacity or efficiency of food manufacturing processes, but also influence end product properties.

Processing conditions, food composition (substrate) and required action are the selection criteria for choosing the correct enzyme. Application of enzymes in baking, beer brewing, alcohol production and fruit processing are well known but novel applications of enzymes are under development.
