Dispersion of Gums and Thickeners

Gums and thickeners are used in the production of almost every food product. At Mixquip we understand the difficulties associated with incorporating these dry powders into solution as the powders are difficult to disperse, often forming agglomerations throughout the product due to the partially hydrated material with the dry powder. After these agglomerations form, mixing times are lengthened as it takes longer for these lumps to break down resulting in poor quality and inconsistency across manufacturing of batches.

Working with Mixquip and our engineers, we look at your process and provide our best suited mixing solutions that provide the benefit of dispersing the powders, disintegrating any agglomerates and increases surface area of the powder to the liquid, achieving agglomerate free and consistent results.
