The ability to test products and processes has always been an essential part of new product development. Until now, food processing companies have had to conduct exhaustive tests to establish the most appropriate formulations to optimise taste and the manufacturing process. But now a new particle analysis process, pioneered by GEA Niro, has the ability to revolutionise the testing of products requiring spray drying to enable greater flexibility during the development stage, bring products to market faster then previously possible and conduct the whole process much less expensively than has been possible to date. The process is called DRYNETICS[TM].
