CEREALS: THE PITHY EXTRA HELPING OF MICRONUTRIENTS
Cereals are very popular in many countries. Particularly on the market for breakfast cereals, novel product ideas are winning over new target groups and driving growth. Our vitamin and mineral premixes give your products added health value.
In the case of cereal fortification, it’s not just the specific product characteristics and the nutrient content that play a role. The production process is equally important. Micronutrients can, for instance in the case of breakfast cereals with a filling, be worked into this filling or applied as a coating to the cereal husk. The right option depends, amongst other things, on the dosage of vitamins and minerals and the production facilities. Our micronutrient premixes are adapted to each and every application.
The choice of raw materials has a major impact on the quality of end products particularly in the case of minerals. There are already significant differences between the different forms of iron available on the market. For vitamins, however, it is heat sensitivity that is the crucial factor. In addition, there are the production parameters that we take into account when developing our customer-specific premixes.
