Direct food processing aids

The formation of foam during the production of food or animal feed is caused by the presence of foam active substances in the process e.g. sugar/glucose syrup and/or starch and/or proteins and/or by-products. Struktol antifoams are effective during the production and processing of food/feed. More over they are permitted as food / feed additives by the valid regulations and allowed to remain in food or feed.

The dosage rate for antifoams depends on several parameters e.g. food/feed ingredients, temperature, pH-values, water hardness, factory setup and others. Therefore it is impossible to indicate an appr. dosage rate without having detailed information. Common applications for Struktol antifoam agents are fruit juice, fresh yeast production, marmalade/jam, flavour, animal feed and others.

The most effective antifoam product, necessary dosage quantities and best possible addition points depend on a.m. factory conditions and must be found out for each individual factory by carrying out work trials. According to the Directive 95/2/EC and 2008/84/EC Struktol additives can be used as direct food additives in compliance with the valid restricitions during food production and processing.
