High Shear Mixer solutions for Jams and Spreads
Jams and spreads are often fruit based products which also include some dispersed pectin (a fruit based gum). The challenges to the manufacturer include hydration of the pectin and achieving the proper product consistency and mouth-feel. IKA® Works produces a range of mixers ideally suited to breaking down the agglomerates that often form when hydrating pectin as well as achieving the desired final product. Optimizing residence time in the mixer and utilizing the ideal Generator allows manufacturers to produce anything from a jam with plenty of fruit texture to a smooth jelly.
ADVANTAGES OF IKA® WORKS MIXERS FOR PRODUCING JAMS AND SPREADS:
- Complete hydration of pectin decreases manufacturing costs through reduced process time, no wasted raw materials (no need for filtration), and full ingredient utilization.
- Ability to produce a wide range of products. Customers may use a single mixer to produce jams, jellies, or other materials by simply optimizing residence time and Generator selection.
