Thickening and stabilizing agents typically constitute a very small percentage of formulations but they are high cost ingredients with a critical function to perform. Correctly dispersing and hydrating these ingredients presents some of the most difficult challenges to food processors.

The high shear action of a Silverson mixer rapidly disperses agglomerates, constantly exposing an increasing surface area of powder to the surrounding liquid. The result is an agglomerate-free solution within minutes and maximized yield. To find out more information, please see the reports below.
