Resin Applications

From portable, cartridge-based devices for wine purification at home to industrial processes for the production of Omega 3 fish oils or vegan-friendly proteins, our Chromalite® chromatographic resins and LifetechTM immobilized enzymes are helping food and beverage manufacturers achieve maximum product quality across the globe.

Typical chromatographic applications include taste and odour improvements, removal of product impurities, aesthetic improvements and any other application where separation, purification or extraction is beneficial.  

Immobilized Enzymes are commonly used as biocatalysts in the production of sweeteners, edible fish oils (i.e. Omega 3, Cod Liver Oil), cocoa butter derivatives and many more.
