Food Industry

A recipe for success.

In the food industry, cellulose filter aids are a critical component in the processing of products such as cane and beet sugars, corn syrups, and edible oils. As a Kosher-certified food grade material, powdered cellulose is the recommended filter aid in the processing of other foodstuffs including:

  • Molasses and liquid sugars
  • Glucose, dextrose
  • Fructose, maltose
  • Pectin
  • Salad dressings
  • Gelatins
  • Alginate
  • Agars
  • Yeast products
  • Vinegar
  • Citric acid

Many of these food filtration applications require a high degree of filtration performance. The fibrous nature of Purifiber® cellulose filter aid materials allows for a controlled flow and ensures that filtration efficiency is maintained at all times with the guarantee of meeting or exceeding all clarity requirements. Your Purifiber technical support team has years of experience in the application of the cellulose filter aid that is just right for your application. They are also experienced with the various types and methods of filtration equipment employed in your production operations to ensure complete operational compatibility. As an example, whether in the steeping process, germ separation, grinding and screening, starch separation, or syrup conversion, Purifiber has developed the proper cellulose filter aids to handle the various filtration operations throughout the refining processes.

The spent cellulose filter aid of most food materials becomes a natural, useful component of animal feeds. In other cases, the material is excellent for soil treatment and rejuvenation. It's just another way Purifiber® can be a vital ingredient in your company's success.
