This year’s Health Ingredients Europe (HiE) and Natural Ingredients (Ni) shows – taking place at Messe Frankfurt from November 29 to December 1 – will be a showcase for the latest innovation in healthy reformulation. Here, we detail some of the innovations in processing, testing and traceability that will be available to view during the exhibition.


Glatt Ingenieurtechnik (J72) will be addressing the challenge of making precise adjustments to ingredients by highlighting its fluidised and spouted bed technologies.

It plans to demonstrate how its rentable laboratory units can help overcome production issues, including filling, handling and developing functional, nutritional or sensory properties in both liquid and powdered raw materials.

One example will be how vitamins or enzymes can be spray granulated and covered with a film coating that enables the controlled release of active ingredients at the same time.

SternMaid (H20), meanwhile, will be offering number of options for outsourcing production processes.

The German company will be on hand to talk through the plant and machinery at its disposal, comprising mixers for powders and liquids, milling machines, packaging lines and a multifunctional fluid bed processor.

Food ingredients in powder form, such as vitamins and proteins, or dry beverage bases and dietary supplements can be processed, blended and packaged as the customer wishes, it claims.

Testing and traceability

GoodMills Innovation (G74) will be using the show to introduce a new ‘wholegrain index’ seal that reveals the wholegrain content of baked products at first sight.

To promote the seal, grain-based nutritional products will be available to view, including a whole wheat concentrate as well as micro-granules derived from whole ancient spelt.

GoodMills says the new seal is suitable for both industrial and artisan bakeries. It plans to make available soon an online calculator that can determine the wholegrain level of a product based on its recipe.

A range of texture analysis instruments will be available from UK-based Stable Micro Systems’ stand (G80).

It is to launch the TA.XTplus100 at the show, which offers a half-micron distance resolution, making it suitable for testing materials that require fine distance control, such as small granules or capsules.
