Ingredients by Nature Increases capacity of freeze-drying services with no-minimums policy

With capabilities to handle increased demand and immediate availability, IBN’s freeze-drying division is prepared to handle freeze-drying for a wide variety of industries, including nutraceuticals.

Ingredients by Nature (IBN; Montclair, CA) has increased the capacity and now offers a “no-minimums” policy for the company’s dedicated state-of-the-art freeze-drying services. With capabilities to handle increased demand and immediate availability, IBN’s freeze-drying division is prepared to handle freeze-drying for a wide variety of industries, including nutraceuticals.

“We’ve been expanding our capabilities for years and have found the market demand for experienced operations growing,” said Rob Brewster, President of Ingredients by Nature. “In this rapidly changing environment, companies can’t wait months to get back an ingredient or formulation from a pilot ­­– they need to move much quicker. We can now meet that need at scale from the smallest order to a full run.”

According to IBN, freeze drying is an approach that maintains the potency of a formulation while other drying methods may degrade important compounds that can upset their biochemical balance. “Research has shown that the process of freeze-drying can actually protect and retain much of the nutritional quality in the product,” added Brewster. “In fact, freeze-drying has been proven to retain the purity and power of the product, even when presented in powder forms.”
