Meal substitutes: Professional manufacture of diet products

No time to cook, or just counting calories? People with busy schedules or who are dieting reach for meal substitutes more and more often. These meals are super easy to prepare: Just stir the powder into water, and it’s ready to drink. The resulting shake supplies the body with important nutrients and is supposed to equal a balanced meal. Athletes like the popular protein shakes, which are good for a fast protein boost after a workout but don’t replace a meal. What unites protein shakes and meal substitutes is the strict quality demands placed on the manufacture of the powder. SternMaid is your dependable partner for the production of powders and granulates with outstanding properties. 



Dysphagia products 

Dysphagia is a swallowing problem that can make it difficult to consume solid or liquid foods. In dysphagia products, meal substitutes are thickened to reach a certain consistency to make them easier to swallow. They enable fast preparation, which is important in cases of elevated requirements for nutrients and liquids. In making dysphagia premixes, SternMaid pays special attention to good dispersibility of the powder, ensuring excellent dissolving in water. 


Diet shakes as meal substitutes: Precision in production! 

Meal substitutes also play a role in the manufacture of products for formula diets. In this special form of nutrition, daily lunch or dinner are replaced or supplemented by diet shakes for a period of time. That makes the exact dosing of proteins, minerals, vitamins, and trace elements especially important in making these powder mixes. The resulting diet drinks are available ready-mixed or as powders for mixing with water. SternMaid blends the ingredients homogeneously and with high precision, and packages them in accurate powder portions on innovative filling lines. 



Premixes for ready-to-drink products 

Ready-to-drink products are most familiar as mixed alcoholic beverages. A new trend is the bottled meal substitute, likewise ready to drink and with all the important nutrients to make a complete meal. A shake intended to be a full meal substitute needs to meet legal requirements for manufacture in terms of its nutritional profile and energy supplied in the form of calories (kcal). For us as a premix manufacturer, ready-to-drink means ensuring the long-term solubility of the powder. SternMaid supplies premixes that stay dissolved in the product without settling or separating out.
