Milling & Mesh Sizes
Finding the correct particle size can be one of the most difficult parts of food and beverage formulation. It can be especially difficult when creating zero sugar formulas that require precise formulation, such as tempering chocolate. Luckily, there is a solution to the particle size problem!
Icon Foods offers food grade custom milling and grinding in a range of mesh particle sizes for a number of our clean label sweeteners. Our large state of the art blenders can accommodate up to 5-ton batches and our small blenders, mills, and pulverizers are ideal for R&D quantities.
Let us help you! Start formulating smooth, nongranular, zero sugar added food and beverage formulas with ease.
