What’s Hot in Food Review January 2017?

Cereals & grains

Systems offering high-efficiency production lines for a wide variety of breakfast cereals are under scrutiny in this edition. The way people eat is changing drastically. The sector is experiencing a period of transformation from traditional to innovative products that meet consumer demand for naturalness, flavour, colour and nutrition. In this mix, maximum efficiency and durability can set your processing technology apart from competitors. If you supply equipment for traditional, extruded and co-extruded cereals, granola products and cereal bars, we would like to hear from you.

Metal detection

Metal detectors are used in the food industry to guarantee the safety and robustness of food products. These products are most widely used to detect trace elements of metal that may have got into food during the production process. Technical progression now means that technology can offer greater sensitivity, stability and flexibility. It has also opened the range of output signals and information to assist food producers in their quest for consumer safe products.

Smart ingredients

New to the editorial calendar for 2017 is our feature on smart ingredients and foods. We examine new and innovative developments in food materials and look at its formulation function, other than just the provision of energy and nutrients. The spotlight falls on how these ingredients can perform particular functions not achieved by conventional foods; how it performs in specialised applications and in general use. Ingredients investigated include those targeted at assisting in the maintenance of diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart health.

Beverage Review
