Industrial Processes

Are you looking for an efficient industrial option for manufacturing natural ingredients?

Meurens Natural is the perfect partner, thanks to its wide range of high-performance technologies, spread over two independent production lines. A batch-type production system (>< continuous) offers flexibility and reactivity (batch/production from 10 T).

The raw materials supplied can take various forms (grain, flour, starch, dried fruit, etc.) in various types of packaging (bags, big-bags, bulk). Once they have been processed, the products may be packaged in drums, containers, bulk, bags or big-bags.

The processes described below can be carried out separately, or in combination.

Meurens Natural's know-how is based on using natural enzymes (no GMOs) to process the whole grain and not just the starch (standard glucose industry practice).
The hydrolysis of the whole grain using the company's unique process (without any chemical additives) guarantees the finished products retain as many of the raw materials' natural properties as possible (see filtration).

Capacity:
The filters and separators can each handle from 5 to 10 m³ per hour.

technical filtrationS

The various technical filtrations available are chosen according to the type and quantity of insolubles to be removed and according to the final outcome required.
With the Meurens Natural approach, this stage is exclusively carried out mechanically, without using technical agents and standard chemicals (no ion exchange resins), as these are inconsistent with natural and organic requirements.
As a result, a maximum amount of nutriments and trace elements are preserved along with the unique characteristics of the raw material, such as flavour and colour.

Evaporation

Our evaporators have a handling capacity of 5 T of water per hour.
The concentrations range between 15 and 80 brix

Evaporation

Removal by heating the surplus water contained in the juice so as to produce a better stability.
Various technologies are available, including a vacuum evaporator making it possible to retain the initial organoleptic characteristics (taste and colour) of the raw material.
The finished products available at the end of this stage are ready for packaging immediately or for bulk storage, while the semi-finished products are earmarked for drying or mixing.

drying

The products leaving the evaporator or the hydrolysis process (for the hydrolysed flours) may be dried using the Spray-dry technique.
The result is a wide variety of dehydrated syrups, purées or hydrolysed flours.
Meurens Natural currently relies on its professional and experienced partners for these operations.
