The food and food ingredient production sector is becoming more competitive on a global scale, with the goal of developing safe, wholesome, and simple-to-use high-quality, innovative goods. Manufacturers are focusing on value, monitoring cost of ownership, and applying sustainable production processes to fulfill their economic goals in the face of growing raw material and energy costs. Alfa Chemistry offers a wide range of filtration, separation, and purification solutions to help food manufacturers meet their objectives and safeguard their brands.
Natural, alternative, and high-intensity sweeteners, industrial enzymes, amino acids, acidulants, tastes, extracts, flavors, fermented products, and other process fluids are among the fluids we treat. It is becoming increasingly viable to manufacture value-added components from traditional fluids using cutting-edge separation and purification technology. You can rely on Alfa Chemistry's food and ingredient processing filtration and separation expertise and collaboration, whether it's a tried-and-true solution or a difficult new application.
Fermenter Broth Clarification
Many of today's food and feed additives, such as amino acids, acidifiers, vitamins, and yeast extracts, as well as food processing aids like enzymes, are made using biotechnology, and fermentation is at the heart of the process. The extraction and purification of the target metabolites is the next critical step after fermentation.
Alfa Chemistry offers a ceramic membrane cross-flow filtering system. These systems offer distinct benefits, such as consistent performance, reduced pollution risk due to closed systems, high production, and waste minimization.
QC Microbial Detection for Food Ingredients
Over 700 E. coli serotypes have been identified thus far. EHEC is the most pathogenic E. coli. The most frequent EHEC in clinical HUS is Escherichia coli O157:H7. EHEC, pathogenic Escherichia coli O157, Salmonella, Listeria, and Listeria monocytogenes may all be detected fast with our gene CD.
- In less than 9 hours, the GeneDisc plate for E. coli O157 and Salmonella can detect pathogenic E. coli O157 and Salmonella in raw beef samples. It can lower the amount of false positives because it targets pathogenic E. coli O157.
- The Salmonella GeneDisc plate may be used to identify raw meat in less than 9 hours and all meals in less than 18 hours.
- The Listeria GeneDisc plate can be used to detect all meals in less than 24 hours.
Mud Removal or Glucose Syrup Clarification
In the manufacturing of sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup and glucose, desludge or clarifying of glucose syrup is a key stage. To ensure the efficiency of downstream process steps, oil, protein, and fiber must be removed. The muck is removed using a variety of techniques, including centrifugation and filtering. Manufacturers nowadays are looking for the most cost-effective clarity solution to ensure the best product quality and productivity while also maintaining process safety and reducing waste.
Alfa Chemistry offers a ceramic cross-flow filtration system with ceramic modules to suit these requirements. These systems have distinct benefits, such as consistent performance, reduced pollution risk due to closed systems, high production, and waste minimization.
