Improving handling and more accurate dosing by providing a homogenous distribution of additives
• Preserving correct vitamin ratios
• Facilitating the mixing of two liquids in order to create one ingredient
• Permitting safer handling of corrosive ingredients and improving the transportation and storage of materials
• Silica acts as as an anti-caking agent in dry blends, enabling free-flowing powder to be obtained


Silica, a fine powder that covers the surface of host powders, creates surface roughness between particles that prevents them from clumping together, enabling particles
to flow freely. Further, because silica is hydrophilic, it:
• Contains moisture-absorbing properties that keep particles consistently dry & easy to manage, extending shelf life
• Allows for faster processing due to more accurate weighing on scales
• Eliminates blockage throughout equipment
• Systematic machine handling & storage processes
