This year, international suppliers and decision-makers from the snack and confectionery industry will meet again in Cologne: from 23 to 25 April, ProSweets and ISM, co-located this year, will take place in Germany. Brabender will be joining over 1000 exhibitors in displaying its product portfolio of measuring and process equipment for quality control and development of confectionery and snack products at ProSweets.
The company offers product solutions not only for the cereal, flour, starch and bakery and pasta industries, but also for the confectionery and snack food sector.
“Our devices are also used, for example, in the production of candy laces, flips, or chocolate,” explained Markus Löns, Business Development Manager Food & Feed at Brabender.
At the trade fair, the Duisburg-based company will present for the first time its new improved viscosity measurement with the ViscoQuick viscometer for the confectionery and snack food industry.
“We have expanded the range of applications for the ViscoQuick and developed new paddles with which the device is now also suitable for new different applications in the food sector, such as honey, syrup, caramel cream or chocolate,” said Löns, to make the ViscoQuick more universally applicable.
In the field of chocolate production, the crystallisation behaviour of essential raw materials under shear as well as their rheological properties can be measured. Measurable raw materials in chocolate production include cocoa mass, cocoa butter and nut-containing masses.
Other advantages of using this instrument include better heating or cooling rates. It can cool down to as low as 10 degrees celsius. It also performs with a quick measurement method and can perform starch-based standard measurements in 10 minutes.
