Mild Separation Technologies

Food Tech Park Brainport unlocks mild separation technologies

Mild separation technologies often provide entrepreneurs with an edge on the market, as mild separation and/or drying processes result in a higher price per kilo. How is this possible? Mild processes are far more efficient and consume far less water and energy. Raw materials are better utilised and the quality of the final product is better. The figures say it all: the yield of a normal drying process is 40%, while a mild process can produce a yield of 80 to 85%.


Cost-effective process, product and price

Our partners are bringing together the best in food and chemical processing technologies. At the pilot plant at Food Tech Park Brainport experts continually take the validated capabilities of mild drying, concentrating and extracting one step further, extracting valuable nutrients such as proteins from waste streams. These processes also produce new products, such as purées that can be used as a basis for soups, sauces and shakes. Pure, healthy products that can be marketed by entrepreneurs such as yourself, since the process, the product and the price make this commercially viable.
