Preserving the quality of food products during processing and storage remains a major challenge for food industry. Especially the preservation of additive-free, natural food products is demanding due to their thermal and mechanical sensitivity during processing and the volatilty of contained aroma and flavor compounds.
The mission of microPow is to solve this problem using the additive-free, microstructured microPow delivery system for aromas and flavours allowing improved storability as well as enhanced and controlled release of contained active ingredients leading to cost-savings for manufacturers, improvements in the quality and enhanced shelf-life of the products.
microPow aroma powders are all-natural and don't rely on any additives or stabilizers added to the formulation during production.
microPow stabilizes contained aroma and flavour compounds and leads to consistent taste of food products during the whole shelf-life.
microPow amplifies the release of contained aromas and flavours. Less ingredient - same perception.
