IFT Food Expo in Las Vegas - Glatt at booth 2206

Innovative Process Technologies for Customized Functional Ingredients and Beverage Powder Mixes. Glatt will present innovative fluidized bed and spouted bed technologies to dry, agglomerate, granulate and particle coat various ingredients for sophisticated applications.

These ingredients may require specific particle sizes or shapes, optimum solubility, compressibility or the functional protection provided by active ingredients or improved stability via protective coatings.

For nutritional supplement and instant beverage manufacturers, working with ingredients or products that are supposed to feature particular properties can be demanding – whether it’s a technological challenge during production, a specific protective role or a sensory or nutritional function. Glatt will showcase processes in which liquid flavor emulsions can be spray granulated, powders can be agglomerated and sensitive substances can be encapsulated. Depending on the application requirements, the selection and combination of the right process parameters is important: how fast, if at all, should the product dissolve? When should active ingredients e.g. vitamins or probiotics be released? What role does bulk density play in terms of application, handling, storage and packaging, and how stable do the particles need to be?

Glatt’s fluidized bed technologies enable manufacturers to enhance product properties. As such, beverage powders comprising semi-hydrophobic components or agglomerated baby foods can be produced that do not separate and offer both excellent solubility and homogenous particle distribution properties. Nutritional supplements can also be covered with functional film coatings that provide better active ingredient release profiles. Plus, with the help of spray granulation, it is possible to dry liquid food additives and precisely adjust their particle size. In Las Vegas, Glatt will demonstrate this with the help of Augmented Reality systems, including a virtual tour and interesting animations. Various samples and products will also be available. The company also provides extensive consulting and offers laboratory units and pilot plants for early stage trials and testing.

Glatt Air Techniques Inc. (GAT) is Glatt´s sales and service center for North America. For prospective American customers who are interested in innovative technologies to functionalize granules and pellets, GAT represents the link to the German competence center. Furthermore, GAT provides support for special local tasks during project realization. At http://www.enhancing-ingredients.com/, Glatt offers a white paper including practical examples from spray granulation to coating, critical process parameters, and thought-provoking approaches to successful product and process development, as well as process and plant engineering.
