Membrane Solutions for Tea & Botanical Extracts - Food and Beverage
Porifera’s technology offers broad applicability to a variety of aqueous extracts:
Create high quality, high solids concentrates for RTD bottling applications
Offer your customers the most potent botanical extracts on the market.
Reduce alcohol content while increasing total solids content in vanilla or cocoa extracts.
Concentrate natural colors without heat damage.
Crucial flavor, color and aroma profiles characteristic of botanical extracts are lost during high-heat processing. Porifera’s proprietary membrane technology requires no heat to remove water and achieve concentrations surpassing 60 Brix.
Customer-verified sensory panels confirm that the taste of products made with Porifera-processed concentrates are indistinguishable from the original products.
Porifera’s innovative approach helps customers process products to high concentrations, reducing volume of shipped and stored products more than 10x, without any product degradation. Shelf-stable concentrates can be shipped further and stored longer in more variable conditions.
For instant tea, Porifera’s high solids concentrates enable customers to use their freeze and spray dryers more efficiently and produce more high-quality product with existing equipment.
