Kemin Foods Opens Functional Foods Application Center

DES MOINES, Iowa--Kemin Foods recently announced its new functional foods application center for manufacturing food and beverage prototypes with FloraGLO® lutein and other Kemin ingredients. Pilot scale prototypes are produced to examine physical characteristics and processing conditions of various finished products.

"As the functional foods industry continues to grow, manufacturers should expect more from their suppliers," said Linda Fullmer, research and development manager at Kemin. "This facility is another service Kemin can offer our manufacturing partners to help reduce investments of time and money during the formulation phase. Customers will also be invited to work with us in developing their products and testing the active ingredients using state-of-the-art analytical equipment."

The center gives Kemin scientists access to pilot scale equipment, including a pasteurizer, grinder, 20-quart mixer and a two-stage homogenizer. The new center's preparation area features a mass balance, four cooling units that can be set to various temperatures for stability experiments, and a commercial stove.
