Blenders & mixers are used to mix almost every ingredients in the food & beverage industry. However, there are certain ingredients that are difficult to mix with water. For instance, xanthan gum is commonly used for its thickening and stabilizing effect on emulsions and suspensions. However, xanthan gum forms a gel structure in water, which is shear thinning and can be used in combination with other rheology modifiers, such as guar gum as the two combine provides better effects. However, xanthan gum has certain difficulties in terms of mixing. The powder, when mixed with water, has a strong tendency to form lumps. A number of dispersion and hydration methods are used to overcome this. Thus, an advanced high shear mixer can be a solution for this, as it can produce an agglomerate-free dispersion and fully hydrate Xanthan gum in a fraction of the time compare to conventional methods. This kind of advanced blender & mixer equipment are providing opportunities for manufacturers to function in niche markets.
