Micro-nutrient Premixes

Premix manufacturing is the comprehensive knowledge of food chemistry, pharmaceutics, food technology and applications. The product research team develops each vitamin & mineral blend individually for a particular application and subjects it to exhaustive tests for purity, solubility, homogeneity, stability and other properties before it is used in the end products. If specified for a particular food application, further studies are undertaken to the compatibility of the premix with the product, method of processing, the effect on colour, texture, organoleptic properties and the stability of the product.

Premix manufacturing requires gentle handling of the substances, exact adherence to the formulation and absolute safety and reliability of the process. The premixes are specially formulated with extensive studies and trials on the milk and milk products as per the interactions of various ingredients present in milk. The suitability of the raw materials to deliver the required quantity of each vitamin in the final product is studied so as to impart the desired level of fortification in the finished product.

The Nutritional Premixes provide precisely customised blends of different functional ingredients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleotides, nutraceuticals and herbs in one single efficient homogeneous premix.

There can be as many as 10-15 ingredients - sourced from over 1,400 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and botanicals in single custom nutrient premix, and these are designed in such a way that the nutritional values as required are provided without altering the taste, texture, colour and mouth feel of the products.

Nutrient-savvy consumers everywhere are looking for foods, beverages and supplements that serve a functional need, from managing your health to delivering essential nutrition. The Premixes can provide custom solutions to every product application. These customized blends are used in dairy, oil and food applications for nutritional supplements to meet the specific customer requirements. Most of the cases the blends and recipes of premixes is closely kept between the customers and suppliers to gain advantages in the competitors of similar product categories. The cost for these premixes is dependent on the concentrations of ingredients, and accordingly the usages in the final product are also lowered. All such premixes are being used for improving nutrition through food fortification. The pricing and cost is very specific to the particular formulation.
