Bonding agent / CG-O174

Artificial stone is a composite product based on unsaturated polyester resins and minerals. Silanes provide the chemical bond between the organic resin and the inorganic mineral. This also significantly increases the mechanical strength. 1 – 3 % are sufficient to significantly increase the strength.

Advantages:

  • Chemical bond between resin and fillers
  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Higher flexural strength

Protein enrichment of your products

Proteins from plants? Yes, please!

Vegetable protein powders are obtained from the seeds, nuts and beans of the respective plants. For example from:

  • Peas
  • Chickpeas
  • Rice (brown / white)
  • Soybeans
  • Mung beans
  • Hemp seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Linseed
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Potatoes
  • Corn
  • Wheat
  • Walnut

Vegetable protein powders have a protein content of up to 90 %, depending on the base, and both conventional and organic qualities are available.

TEXTURED PLANT PROTEINS

A good example of textured vegetable protein powder is pea protein. This is a regenerative product made from peas. Pea protein is used to produce protein-rich, plant-based meat alternatives. It is a natural, gluten-free product with an ideal taste and typical texture. Thus, pea protein is a perfect complement to the usual ingredients in a variety of applications such as vegetarian / vegan products, meat substitutes, convenience products, ready-to-use menus, cereals and snacks.

HYDROLYSED VEGETABLE PROTEIN POWDER

Ordinary plant protein powders are not completely soluble in water. To solve this challenge, our partner has developed a unique enzymatic hydrolysis and is able to make protein powder 100% water soluble. The protein fluid is transformed from an “emulsion” into a “transparent solution”.
In addition, the flavour intensity of the hydrolysed qualities is greatly reduced, which makes flavour masking not absolutely necessary. The hydrolysed plant protein powders are therefore ideal for use in drinks.

Vegetable protein powders are E-number-free and therefore the ideal building block for your “clean labelling”. In addition, the NUTRI SCORE can be improved by up to 5 points through the use of plant-based protein powders, if you achieve a protein content of >8g per 100g in recipes.

Thixogum for stabilisation & texturing

Formulating plant-based beverages can be challenging due to the need to emulsify and stabilise fat, suspend insoluble particles (pulp, minerals, proteins…) and create texture/mouthfeel.

ThixogumTM G is the powerful combination of a natural emulsifier (acacia gum) and a natural stabiliser (gellan). It ensures the successful development of plant-based beverages and meets consumer expectations for appealing taste and texture.

Thanks to its suspensoid properties,ThixogumTMG is able to stabilise insoluble ingredients with minimal impact on viscosity. It is a perfect stabiliser for dairy alternatives. It can be used in beverages consisting of insoluble compounds to suspend particles, such as in fruit juices to obtain a homogeneous suspension of fruit pulp.

Easy-to-use:

  • Immediately dispersible
  • Odourless, colourless and tasteless
  • Free-flowing and dust-free powders optimised for use in liquids and dry mixes
