Interested in plant-based beverages and other products and looking for find out more? JBT is bringing years of experience in developing systems and bespoke solutions for processors to the Plant Based World Conference & Expo, which takes place at the Javits Center, New York City, until December 10, 2021.
For customers working in – or looking to develop – processing systems for soy milk, almond milk, oat milk and a range of other dairy alternatives, JBT has designed solutions that save energy, run longer between cleaning and provide a winning Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
To highlight this expertise, JBT is sponsoring – and speaking at – the Plant Based Expo, where attendees will get the chance to learn more about what JBT has to offer firsthand. “JBT has years of experience working in plant-based, especially in the Asian soya industry, as well as over 100 years’s experience in dairy which has a lot in common with plant-based alternatives,” explains Juan Martinez, JBT’s Global Product Line Director for Aseptic Systems.
“Products such as soy milk, almond milk and particularly oat milk have been growing at a huge velocity, as well as other alternatives like pistachio milk, rice milk, plant-based yoghurt and eggplant mayonnaise.”
JBT solutions for customers working in plant-based categories are wide and varied, from research programs designed to reduce steam usage in processing as a means to improving carbon footprints to bespoke systems developed through JBT’s worldwide Research & Technology Centers to help customers move into plant-based.
But more than this, JBT offers specific solutions for many of today’s in-demand plant-based products. JBT’s Sterideal and SteriTwin UHT systems are industry-leading in their ability to handle difficult-to-process products such as oat milk by extending processing time compared with any other UHT solutions on the market due to their unique design, which reduces fouling. Further, the JBT Homogenizer is highly effective at creating a smooth liquid from plant-based sources.
“JBT has been developing a lot of different solutions and systems with customers with the aim of helping anyone moving into the plant-based category to make their venture a success,” adds Martinez.
