The right systems for texture and stability

Our dedicated food technologists are there to support you in finding the ingredients to achieve the right texture of your finished product. We are creative and find smart solutions even for challenging projects with multiple steps to take into consideration.

The best ingredients for your products

Carefully choosing these ingredients is an important process to ensure the food product is pourable, pumpable, spreadable, or cut-able. Key functionalities like fat and water binding, crystallization control, rheology characteristics, freeze-thaw or bake stability, and mouthfeel are the result of precise selection of these ingredients.

Our food experts carefully evaluate your required product to choose the right ingredients. A clear vision of the required finished food properties like pourable emulsion, in combination with the desired ingredient functionalities, such as water binding, are the first step towards our common goal. In a second evaluation, we take processing conditions and equipment into consideration, as well as attributes including cost and performance, efficiency, and labeling.

In the end you’ll have the product you had envisioned with the right texture and stability.
