Keep the integrity of the food while adding value!
LAUNCHING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR FOOD
FeyeCon offers advanced solutions for food processing. Our CO2-based technologies are used to improve shelf-life, stability, quality and increase yield. In this way, FeyeCon can support you in the development of sustainable, nutritional and healthy food products with excellent taste, texture and color.
100% PURE, NATURAL AND ORGANIC EXTRACTS CO₂ is one of the few solvents which is Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS). We use it as a safe, non-toxic, and effective extraction medium. After extraction, any residue evaporates completely, leaving behind pure and nutritional extracts reflecting their natural origins.
Selective as the technology is, we offer selective extraction of concentrates, isolation of pure components as well as removal of undesired compounds, such as off-flavours or anti-nutritional’s. In such way, such extracts allow purer controlled ingredients can be added to end-products in lower amounts, in higher quality, without negative attributes affecting consumer experience.
EXTENDING SHELF LIFE
Low-temperature microbial inactivation: Fresh products are sensitive to degradation due to spoilage by micro-organisms. Moreover, possible presence of pathogens could affect consumers health and could hence form an enormous liability throughout the food chain.
FeyeCon offers a mild and efficient non-thermal pasteurization technology to mitigate such risks and/or extend the shelf-life of fresh products. Our technology inactivates both spoilage and pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, and molds, etc., preserving taste and colour, and is consequently excellently suitable for heat and oxygen sensitive products.
Drying: FeyeCon offers the ability to dry food products in a gentle and energy-efficient way. At the same time, important attributes such as taste, texture, appearance, and nutritional value are preserved. CO₂ drying also inactivates micro-organisms, eliminating the need for additional treatments.
PROTECT AND RELEASE: INCREASING STABILITY AND BIOAVAILABILITY
Many natural compounds are sensitive to light, oxidation and/or heat. We protect these valuable ingredients using CO₂ (micro-) encapsulation technology. Our tailor-made coatings ensure that powders are stable in aqueous and/or non-aqueous formulations. Triggered and controlled release can be built in to ensure release of the ingredients at the desired time and place. FeyeCon’s encapsulation technology provides 100% yield, meaning no losses of valuable ingredients during processing.
TEXTURIZE: GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR FORMULATIONS
FeyeCon has a CO2-assisted process that enables you to add functionality to ductile materials, such as fats and oils, by means of micronization. Applications include thickening of oils, stabilizing W/O emulsions, and Pickering stabilization. Micronizing such ductile materials is usually cumbersome and energy intensive. To overcome these issues, FeyeCon has developed a CO2-assisted one-step micronization process, offering simple but controllable, sustainable, and cost-efficient texturization for confectionary, bakery, dressings and creams.
