Transform small protein components of both animal and plant origin into solid forms that resemble high-value, whole muscle meat with PetShure® Structuring & Forming Technologies. Leveraging Balchem’s™ expertise in ingredient encapsulation, Structuring & Forming Technologies offer greater process flexibility and control.
The system consists of two parts, sodium alginate and calcium lactate. Alginate produces a thermo-irreversible gel in the presence of calcium which forms and binds small protein components into a singular shape. Microencapsulated calcium lactate offers a consistent and controlled bond with sodium alginate for reliable processing.
With PetShure™ Structuring & Forming Technologies, you can transform protein components into high-quality, high-value solid meat products that handle and process just like whole muscle meat.
