The speaker is Alice Wilkinson, one of the foremost industry-recognized experts in the field of nutritional formulation. In this webinar, Wilkinson provides an overview of blending technology and blending equipment. The features and benefits of typical blending equipment, attachments like intensifier bars and spray bars, and the results on the finished blend are also discussed.
Wilkinson also discusses nutrient premix design, cost/function balance, and the importance of investing time up-front in the process to prevent costly errors. Other considerations, such as the background of the formulator, Certificates of Analysis, regulatory knowledge, supplier approval and resources of advice and guidance are also covered.
When vitamins, minerals, and functional ingredients are added to a food product, they must be added in precisely the right amount, in the proper chemical form, and at the right time during your production process in order to achieve accurate fortification. Because every food product and process is unique, there is no single formula to satisfy every need. Glanbia Nutritionals will custom formulate a premix to suit the characteristics of your finished product.
