SWEETENER FILTRATION Imerys perlite and DE for diatomite for optimal filtration of glucose fructose syrups and liquid sweeteners
Imerys offers a range of diatomite and perlite grades for filtering sweeteners such as glucose fructose syrup, isoglucose and maltose.
Glucose fructose syrup is one of several products - together with glucose, dextrose and maltose - derived from the wet milling of various starch sources such as wheat, maize and barley. The starch is then converted into the desired end product via a series of steps including liquefaction and hydrolysis. The syrup may then be further processed to de-color and concentrate.
Imerys offers a range of diatomite and perlite filter aids for filtering glucose fructose syrup and its derivatives at various stages of this process.
Imerys diatomite and perlite grades offer:
- A good balance of permeability and clarity
- High flow rates
- Low solids penetration
All our filtration products are FCC approved and manufactured in GMP facilities.
We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
