SternVitamin, a designer of vitamin and mineral premixes, develops tailor-made ingredients for its customers that are ideal for fortified drinks, pasta, cereals, bakery products, dairy products and baby food.
Individual solutions, not standard products
As the requirements for fortifying food and beverages are highly specific, SternVitamin does not offer standard products.
Its research department develops each vitamin and mineral mixture individually, according to its customer’s requirements, and tests it thoroughly for use in the relevant foods.
When making up new premixes, attention is given to synergisms between nutrients and also to cost-effectiveness and the optimum processing characteristics of the products.
SternVitamin works closely with universities and research institutions and has strategic alliances with manufacturers of vitamins to ensure it delivers premium ingredients with optimum nutritional value.
Modern container blending plant
SternVitamin has one of the most modern premix plants for high-quality ingredients and food supplements in Germany.
The company’s new plant in Wittenburg has three fully automatic blending lines with the latest process control and visual display equipment, as well as several pilot blending lines, enabling handle throughputs from 100 to 6000kg/hour.
At the beginning of 2008 a modern pharmaceutical-type container blending plant is due to be commissioned in a new, independent extension of the factory.
The process will be accompanied from beginning to end by a sophisticated quality system ensuring that all batches can be traced.
There will be separate rooms for depalletising, weighing, feeding of starting materials, blending, sifting, filling and palletising.
Food Ingredients Europe
SternVitamin will be showcasing its portfolio of products and services at Food Ingredients Europe, from October 31st to November 1st.
