Silver Medal for Brabender at Anuga FoodTec

See quality ascertainment live in action: 

Brabender will definitely be there when the international food and beverage industry gathers in Cologne for Anuga FoodTec, the food industry’s leading global trade fair, from February 20 to 23, 2018. 

The global market leader in measurement and control systems for the food industry will be showcasing the following devices to visitors at Booth C071 in Hall 5.2:

Farinograph-TS with Aqua-Inject
The world’s most frequently used metering device for ascertaining the water absorption and kneading properties of flours – with improved handling and temperature control compared to predecessor models plus 

The add-on module for automatic, accurate water titration.

KETSE 20/40 Lab Compounder
Ttwin-screw extruder that texturizes and modifies foods like cereals, pasta, proteins, snacks and starches.

Micro Visco Amylo-Graph (MVAG)
Versatile device that measures the viscosity properties of flours, starches and other materials in particular and also provides information on enzyme activity (α-amylase).

Quick gluten quality measurement method that provides information about the characteristics of flour, whole grain, vital gluten and baking mixtures.

Quadrumat Junior
High-performance laboratory mill that produces up to 500g of flour in five minutes.

Silver medal at the International FoodTec Awards 2018

The “Rapid Flour Check” for the GlutoPeak rheometer, which provides a “rheological fingerprint” of any flour analyzed in just a few minutes, won the FoodTec Awards 2018 jury over. On March 20 starting at 5 pm, Brabender will be awarded the International FoodTec Awards 2018 silver medal for its pioneering new method in the Congress Centrum Ost (CC Ost), Congress-Saal 1+2 at Koelnmesse.

Rapid, accurate analysis of GlutoPeak readings using the Rapid Flour Check enables the user to utilize the device for the direct ascertainment of defined parameters. Low sample quantities are all that’s required to enable accurate protein content, wet gluten and water absorption coefficient correlation information to be generated in less than five minutes. These quality parameters, which are vital to raw material acceptance procedures, can be measured and analyzed in no time at all.

Visiting Brabender’s booth during the guided tour
A guided tour of the trade fair, which kicks off on March 20 at 10 am at the DLG booth (D41) in Hall 5.2, takes in all FoodTec Award winners, including the Brabender booth. Anybody registering for the tour can obtain information about the GlutoPeak and the “Rapid Flour Check” method in the form of a compact presentation in English.
