CASE STUDY

Competitive Water-Clear Beverage Formulations

Prinova leveraged technical expertise, a diverse supply network, and micronisation to solve a beverage brand’s struggle to find a vitamin premix that provided a water-clear solution.

Challenge: Finding A Clear Solution for Vitamin Premixes

When consumers purchase lifestyle nutrition and wellness beverages, they expect a refreshing, nutritionally optimised drink with clean visual appeal. So when one beverage brand continued to battle solubility problems with a vitamin premix, it turned to Prinova for help. The product was not water-clear, and the brand’s ability to successfully meet consumer expectations and reflect current beverage trends was in jeopardy.  

 

Could Prinova step in and help solve the premix problem?

 

Solution: Deciphering Particle Size Distribution

The Prinova technical team took on the challenge by setting up a rigorous and extensive quality assurance testing program. Prinova experts reviewed a range of factors, including ingredient quality, premix composition, particle sizes, and processing conditions. Ultimately, the team detected poor solubility in two premix micronutrients.  

 

The solution to the problem was two-fold. For the first ingredient, Prinova leveraged its vast supply network to source a new, more shelf-stable option with better solubility. For the second ingredient, the team used  Prinova’s extensive micronisation services. After refining the mineral into a much smaller particle size, the beverage formulation yielded not only improved solubility, but also enhanced mouth-feel.
