Balchem Beverage Solutions

Whether sipped to hydrate after a day in the sun, shaken/blended to power a morning workout, or brewed for an afternoon pick-me-up, beverages are a key component to our day-to-day lives.

Since we’re constantly sipping on some sort of hot or cold liquid, it’s important we make sure that they’re providing us with the proper energy and nutrition our bodies crave. We’ve made it our goal to engineer products that enhance the taste and performance of popular beverages such as coffee, hot cocoas, lattes, teas, juices, smoothies, flavored milk, etc. We’re always launching new and innovative beverage products along with seasonal LTO’s (limited time offerings).

With our assortment of beverage bases and powders, your customers will notice a difference. Not just in the flavor, but in the way their bodies feel – powerful and energized.

Beverage Technologies

Our research and development expertise in product creation, formulation and market applications brings some of the most innovative lipid systems to market for drinkable nutrition. Balchem’s advanced ingredient technology is behind some of the most popular beverages on the market today. In fact, you’ve probably consumed some of our additives on multiple occasions without even realizing it!

Lipid System Technology

Lipid systems can be tailored to each customer’s needs and are open to anything in combination. A basic lipid system utilizes individual raw materials to provide a stable formulation. This formulation then goes through the spray dry process in order to create a free-flowing powder. 

Our beverage capabilities span from hot beverages to meal replacement drinks. Regardless of the end product, the sky’s the limit on our ability to customize beverage solutions for drinkable nutrition solutions that perform.

Our technology optimizes dispersion and dissolution when mixed with liquids. Spray drying effectively microencapsulates sensitive actives to ensure they are delivered at just the right point of mixing to optimize product performance. In other words, we’ve engineered a beverage powder that mixes quickly and effectively in both hot or cold applications. 

Our Lipid Systems Have The Ability to Deliver

  • Creaminess & opacity
  • Enhanced color & flavor
  • Improved texture & mouthfeel
  • Structure & stability
  • Nutritional properties
  • Improved satiety
  • Controlled release of fats
  • Even distribution of low-inclusion ingredients

Spray Dry Technology

A pioneer and innovator in spray dry technology, we are the market leader in specialty spray-dried lipid systems.

Since acquiring Innovative Food Processors, Inc. (IFP®), our manufacturing capabilities have expanded to offer greater flexibility in instantiation for our customers. This equips you with greater operational effectiveness while providing products that meet consumer’s needs of rapid hydration, increased solubility, and wettability.

This is made possible through spray dry and fluid bed agglomeration technology. This new advancement equips you with greater operational effectiveness while providing products that meet consumers’ needs of rapid hydration, increased solubility, and wettability.

What Is Microencapsulation?

Microencapsulation from Balchem provides products for the beverage market that are instantized, improve product dispersion or flow, arrive at precise dosing, or reduce product dusting.
