The Food Ingredient Industry

Enhancing Performance While Improving The Bottom Line.

In today’s highly competitive market, food ingredient producers are continuously looking for ways to gain advantage. Whether it’s through product differentiation, increased yield, or reduced operational costs, they are looking for partners to help achieve their goals.

Improved Separations Of Valuable Food Streams

Whether you are producing sweeteners, vegetable oils, amino acids, enzymes or gelatin, or entering rapidly growing new markets like plant-based proteins, we recognize that incremental changes can have a big impact on your process economics.

Taking A Holistic Approach To Your Process

In order to help you achieve your goals, Solecta partners with you to first understand your critical KPIs. From there, we will look across your separations processes, focusing on opportunities to improve your top and bottom lines.

Sweeteners

Increase product quality and yield.

The sweetener industry is very diversified in terms of feed stocks and end products, resulting in an equally complex set of manufacturing processes. Solecta has experience in a number of applications supporting the industry, including:

  • Reduce downstream process loading and simplify overall process
  • Dextrose clarification – UF
  • Enhance sugar purity for expanded markets
  • DP Sugars Fractionation – NF
