Emulsifier and mixer for gelling agent

When making jams and marmalades, gelling agents, such as pectin, are used to thicken the fruit juices. Pectin occurs in fruits naturally, but there are some fruit types that are not rich in its content. In this case, pectin is added during the mixing process. Dispersing and hydrating pectin could be difficult because when mixed with water, the powder tends to form agglomerates that don’t break down easily. This can lead to poor quality results and reduced yield, so it is crucial to choose a proper mixing technology.

Mixing emulsifiers, thickeners, and other food stabilizers

The Thickeners Preparer from Ghizzoni is a mixing unit used for preparing emulsifiers and thickeners, such as pectin or starch. This process provides a more controlled environment for the gelling agent solution, resulting in more consistent quality and better yield of the final product. This unit is usually integrated with the vacuum cooker, and its capacity is proportionally adjusted to it (usually emulsifier’s capacity is 10% of the vacuum cooker batch size). It is available in capacities ranging from 20 liters to 500 liters.
