Professional manufacture
of functional food

The manufacture of functional food involves enriching foods with “functional ingredients.” These can be vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, or plant ingredients like aloe vera or probiotic microorganisms. These added ingredients are intended to give functional foods beneficial effects on the body for improved health. Currently there is no Europe-wide legal definition for this product group. Therefore, functional food is marketed with descriptors like probiotic or dietetic. The production of functional food started in Japan, where foods whose functions go beyond nutrition and enjoyment have been sold since 1985. As an expert in functional food, SternMaid is your professional partner. We make powder and granulate products on the latest equipment in top quality to individual requirements and formulations. 


Collagen products for the beauty and anti-aging trend 

Collagen is increasingly used in the production of functional food for the beauty category. It is thought to have an anti-aging effect, counteracting the results of aging. At over 30 percent of all proteins, collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. The regular intake of collagen in powder or capsule form can boost the health of joints, bones, cartilage, and muscle. The powder needs to be readily soluble in water so that it can be consumed as a shake. At SternMaid low-dust collagen powder is processed, blended, and filled in the latest equipment. Since collagen quality fluctuates greatly on the world market, it’s important to know your raw material suppliers well. Expertise is the most important thing in selecting a supplier. With SternMaid you can depend on the high quality of the raw materials used! 


Breakfast bowls, the functional food trend for healthy nutrition 

Functional food now starts with the first meal of the day. As a breakfast bowl or smoothie bowl it promises a healthy and balanced start to the day. It’s a quick breakfast in powder form that’s easy to make and has all the important nutrients. To make sure the mixture goes into the bowl in the same form as it was blended, at SternMaid we take care to get a homogeneous particle distribution. With blends of different particle sizes, small particles can rise and larger ones can settle during transportation. SternMaid prevents this separation by making sure of a homogeneous blend structure right from the choice of raw materials. 


Products for getting and keeping healthy gut flora 

The right blend is especially important in functional food products for boosting gut health. People looking to reduce bloating or constipation can activate gut movement in a gentle and controlled manner with a powdered premix. Some products are designed so that the structure is activated when stirred into liquid, but does not swell until it reaches the digestive tract. This gently stretches the gut muscles and assists them in their natural movement. In the manufacture of functional food products designed to improve gut health, the combination of probiotic inactive cultures and prebiotic carrier materials is a particular challenge. To ensure homogeneous blends of high quality, SternMaid works cleanly and extremely precisely throughout the production process. With our high blending precision, you can be sure that all the ingredients in your product are precisely measured and evenly distributed.
