FST has developed a special grinding technology to mill oil meals in a way that their naturally present functionality comes to fruition – the retention of liquids.
In the food industry retaining water for texturing purposes is a traditional process. What better way to achieve this could there be than by using a natural, sustainable ingredient like an oil meal.
The especially gentle FST-process allows for cold- and warm swelling absorption of the water. Depending on the type of oil meal the retention rate is improved by the content of proteins and mucilage in the oil meals.
Linseed, for example, has been used for thousands of years as a medical drug and food alike and possesses these retention properties in abundance.
