Food & Beverage

Enhancing the taste and quality of the world’s favorite foods and beverages. 

 
 
 

Experience higher operating efficiency and productivity

Food and beverage manufacturers seek to ensure the quality and consistency of the products they produce, including dairy products, sweeteners, juices, and wines. Not only can the quality be improved by improving the quality of water used in production, but it can also be enhanced through technologies that address, for example, concentration and purification.  

DuPont Water Solutions can help ensure a more dependable set of food and beverage characteristics, such as taste, color, and texture, through a variety of solutions. Our comprehensive product line, technical expertise, and global reach allow for optimized performance of even the most complex manufacturing processes.

Improve process efficiency and purity 

Sweeteners are an important part of the global food and beverage industry. With diverse sources and uses, they require a wide range of process technologies to manufacture. The higher the quality and consistency of your sweetener, the greater its value. 

We are the leading supplier of products and technologies to produce sweeteners of the highest purity and enable the most cost-effective manufacturing processes. 

Our solutions help you deliver high-quality sweeteners — beet sugar, cane sugar, high-fructose starch sweetener, and hydrogenated sugar — by addressing:

  • Deashing.
  • Decolorization.
  • Chromatography.
  • Waste brine recycling from decolorization.
  • Concentration of thin juice.
  • Polishing.
  • Enzyme immobilization.
  • Sugar concentration.
  • Sugar purification.
  • Inversion. 

Get more from milk 

On a global scale, milk is one of our most important forms of nutrition. It is a complex mixture of fats, proteins or caseins, minerals, enzymes, and carbohydrates in the form of lactose.

We provide solutions using both membrane and ion exchange technologies to help separate milk components and produce additional products such as cheeses, cultured milk, and whey proteins. 

Our solutions address:

  • Milk concentration.
  • Whey concentration.
  • Whey demineralization.
  • Deashing. 

Achieve quality and consistency 

Within the large and diverse global marketplace for beverages, consumers demand and expect both quality and consistency in their beverage choices, including clarity, taste, and nutritional value. Our products help you provide the highest quality and most consistent beverages possible by addressing: 

  • Debittering. 
  • Juice deacidification.
  • Decolorization and protein haze stabilization.
  • Ingredient water.
  • Wine and juice. 

Improve nutritional quality and yield 

Nutritionals, such as organic and amino acids, are components or derivatives of food products and have health benefits or value in the consumer market. These products are often extracted from whole foods such as green tea or fruit, or sometimes generated by fermentation. 

We offer a wide range of membranes, adsorbents, and ion exchange resins to recover, isolate, and purify nutritional products, helping your facility achieve higher yield and consistent quality. 

Our solutions address: 

  • Amino acid (lysine) recovery and purification.
  • Organic acid manufacturing.
  • Organic acid deashing.
  • Chromatography.
  • Plant extracts and polyphenols.
  • Gelatin deashing.
