With the integration of Balchem Corporation and SensoryEffects
, the Balchem Encapsulates Applications research lab has relocated from New Hampton, NY to Bridgeton, MO. The Applications lab is now housed in a newly renovated lab space to accommodate all of the equipment moved from New York and is now ready to take on new projects.
Applications research and development is an important part of the SensoryEffects technical team, as they study the performance of our ingredient portfolio in the finished formulations used by customers. The lab has a wide variety of equipment and instrumentation suited for analytical, bakery, meat and confectionery research
to support new product development or trouble shoot customer issues.
Our team is comprised of talented scientists trained in bakery, meat and encapsulation technologies and they work diligently to overcome the many challenges our customers encounter in their products and/or processes. They are highly skilled in formula development for meat, bakery and confectionery products and are always willing to share their expertise.
The integration has made a wider range of ingredients available to customers in the bakery and meat industry, including lipid inclusions
for Balchem customers and encapsulated ingredients
for SensoryEffects customers. Along with the ability to develop bakery, meat and confectionery products, our lab can analyze the raw materials and finished products in-house for CO2 production, pH, texture, moisture, color, flavor matching and conduct sensory tests.
The Applications team has been hard at work in their new lab with new product applications research and they are looking forward to supporting our new and existing customers from this new facility.
We currently support many research efforts for European line extensions of our encapsulate and inclusion products
, and will be launching lipid inclusions
for the European market by the end of 2015. Look for them to roll out at the FI Natural Products in Istanbul and IBA in Munich trade shows!
