The influence of glass transition of amorphous food powders during fluid bed agglomeration: Pulverized extracts from fruit and vegetables, plants or probiotics change their physical chemical properties depending on the ambient conditions. Based on material knowledge, precise settings can be selected in fluid bed processes to define particle properties and avoid production losses. (article in German language)
Innovative Process Technologies for Customized Functional Ingredients and Beverage Powder Mixes: At the 27th International Exhibition for Food, Beverages, Food Raw Materials in Moscow, 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.

To ensure that sensitive substances such as probiotics, flavors, vitamins or delayed-release active ingredients survive their journey through processing or the digestive tract, they must be functionally protected. Hot melt coating and encapsulation in the fluid bed or spouted bed offer a variety of product design options in this regard. (article in German language)
Sensitive substances such as vitamins, flavors or probiotics must be well packaged to ensure that they reach their point of action safely. To ensure that they can also be released from their protective shell at the right time, fluid bed and spouted bed technologies with microencapsulation and hot melt coating offer two tailor-made finishing processes.

Sensitive substances such as probiotics, vitamins or sustained release dosage forms must be furnished with a functionally protective coating to ensure their safe transport through the intestinal tract. Furthermore, the surface treatment guarantees their release at a well-defined point in time. Hot-melt fluidized bed granulation provides a variety of possibilities for product design.
Application-specific product formulations require that the organisms are kept in a state capable of multiplying from the time of their production through storage to transport to the place of release. Fluidized bed and spouted bed processes offer a very high potential for different heat and mass transfer processes due to their unique fluid mechanical and thermodynamic properties. The drying and stabilization of microorganisms for food and nutraceuticals is one of many examples that illustrate the close interplay between formulation, process engineering and plant engineering.
