Quality Ingredients completes installation of spray drying equipment in Minnesota

FBR Staff Writer Published 12 September 2013

Quality Ingredients, a US-based provider of spray drying services and powdered food ingredients, has completed the installation of two small tower dryers in isolated suites at its facility in Minnesota.

The expansion doubles the company's specialized spray drying capacity for food and nutritional ingredients and allows it to cater to the increasing demand for specialized processing of custom ingredients. It also leverages the company's expertise in precision drying technology and encapsulation.

The two dryers provide the company's customers with flexible contract spray drying services for specialized projects, which range from colors and flavors to nutritional ingredients for functional foods.

Quality Ingredients CEO Isabelle Day said that as consumers increasingly seek functional ingredients in the foods they eat, our customers - food manufacturers - increasingly need partners who can encapsulate these sensitive, high-value ingredients and make them shelf stable.

"Everything from the right healthy oil to a volatile natural color or flavor in liquid form must be carefully dried to precise specifications to meet their needs and, ultimately, consumer expectations," Day added.
