Food & Beverages

A food is a complex feed material composed from numerous molecular building blocks, such as proteins, amino acids, organic acids, fats and oils, sugars, minerals, phenollic compounds to mention a few. These building blocks make up the complex material, which has a specific flavour, taste, texture, colour, nutritional function all of which are required to create a food product.


MMS have worked with many food and beverage applications, some are listed below others are restricted due to confidentiality agreements.
