Micronutrient premix - good for your gut
Our new premix addresses the current “good for your gut – good for you” trend. Physical and psychological stress and imbalanced nutrition can weaken the immune system, especially in the gut. Some 70-80% of all immune cells are found in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue. This is where SternGut comes in.
Enzymes for wafer products
The Sternzym LQ series improves wafer production. In our pilot plant the processability of individual batters can be pretested on a quasi-industrial pilot scale. This lets wafer manufacturers significantly increase process efficiency for high-quality products, while cutting development costs.
Enzymes around sugar
The Sugazym enzyme series ensures a trouble-free sugar production process, higher throughput and improved sugar quality. To make better use of sucrose, our Sweetase and Sternzym FOS enzyme systems are helpful tools for the production of invert sugar syrup and prebiotic oligosaccharides respectively.
Seniors’ immune defence
A premix concept for food supplements
Our new SternDefence Senior premix supports the immune system of seniors with essential micronutrients to counteract age-related immune system decline and micronutrient deficiencies. In addition, its sea buckthorn, lycopene and green tea extract act as antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory properties, and stimulate immune cells. This water-soluble powder is easy to consume for seniors – no big capsules.
Flavours for that extra boost
Authentic sweet and savoury flavours for food and beverages. Expertise is what propels OlbrichtArom and our entire group. As part of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe we have colleagues who are experts in dairy products, baked goods and confectionary, deli foods and snacks.
