Nutraceutical Applications

Freeze-Drying for the Nutraceutical Industry

Freeze-drying nutraceutical products is a cost-effective way to retain the maximum health benefits through preserving the naturally occurring active ingredients and compounds. Preserving nutraceuticals is one of the most popular industrial freeze dryer applications.

These medicinally active and nutrient-rich food products offer a wide array of benefits for health-conscious consumers. These same customers, however, want to be assured that their supplements and natural food products are free of contamination, have a consistent level of active ingredients, and are made without chemical preservatives, additives, or stabilizers.

Meeting the demands of these consumers means providing a product that meets these criteria. The demands of the bottom line require an equipment investment that is also cost effective and reliable, and Parker Freeze Dry has the solution.
