Many foods are a mixture of different high-quality raw materials. In order to mix these raw materials ideally, the technology must be adapted to the corresponding product. For this purpose, Glass can fall back on a large portfolio of food mixers with different mixing speeds, machine sizes and mixing tools.
Many foods must be chopped in individual processing steps in order to develop their taste or function optimally. At Glass, mixers are available in which the products can be chopped using appropriate chopping tools. With different parameter sets for the machines it is possible to grind either very coarsely or very finely
An important process step for food is the emulsification of various liquid components to a new product. In this way new products are created from two or more basic materials. Emulsifying machines can also be used to homogenize food and produce suspensions. In addition, it may be necessary to mix in further components.
Industrial tumbling, marinating and rumbling of meat improves the quality of the products: proteins are activated and thus the water-binding capacity is increased. It also makes the meat more tender and improves cohesion during cooking.
For some meat products, a steak or tenderiser is desired. For these tasks, GLASS has developed two different versions of steak machines. The Schnitzel-Steaker with rather short knives is particularly suitable for tenderising schnitzels or steaks and thus achieving a consistent product quality. Pieces of meat treated in this way retain their shape during subsequent roasting or cooking, are easier to digest and the mouthfeel is also improved. At the same time the structure of the meat is retained.
