04 May Blendhub presents a project that shows how the improvement of a specific raw material can generate large volumes of added value formulation
For years, the dairy by-product permeate has had difficulties in finding its way into industrial and consumer food products due to its low/no functionality, bad taste issues and important increase in price due to its cost of transportation from producer to user. Blendhub participates in a project with the objective to integrate permeate into specific powder blends with higher added value for specialty beverage products. The company presented it at Alimentaria
The founder and CEO of Blendhub, Henrik Stamm Kristensen, participated in the event Aliber, organized by the Spanish Federation of Food and Beverage (FIAB in its Spanish acronym) within the Alimentaria fair. Stamm Kristensen presented “Probio Drink: Development of new probiotic drinks and functional ingredients from dairy by-products”.
The Probio Drink project is one of the six collaborations that Premium Ingredients, a Blendhub brand, has developed with the help from the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology. It also features the participation of the Spanish companies Tecnalia and Feiraco, and the German, NaturstoffTechnik GmbH and MeiereiGenossenschaft Langenhorn e.g. The aim is to develop new stabilizers based on the dairy by-product permeate for beverages. Permeate which is currently underused, is an environmental pollutant and has difficulties in finding its way into food products due to its low/no functionality, bad taste issues or price from producer to user, incremented due to high transport costs of a commodity ingredient.
Blendhub’s CEO put this case as an example of how his company is able to generate large volumes of formulation by giving new uses to raw material powder products such as permeate – which operates as a commodity-, making their value grow by transforming them into a food powder blend with higher added value for raw material producer, food producer and the final consumer. Blendhub can host such formulations Anywhere in the world produced in the world’s first portable powder blending factory and supported by a unique full-service platform, optimizing their value for the various stakeholders of the agrifood value chain, reaching from the manufacturer of raw materials to the final consumer at the lowest possible price.
Blendhub offers “Food Powder Blends Anywhere” and wants to improve access to quality food products for more people in more places based on “OUR, YOUR or THEIR formulations” delivering food powder blends of the highest quality at a lower cost and with no risk for any stakeholder in the agrifood value chain.
Blendhub is taking food production from Static to Portable
