Mixing It Up With Dry Blending

What Is Dry Blending?

Dry blending is becoming increasingly popular in the food industry all across the world. The benefits, accessibility, and ease of dry blending is creating a stir in the world of food and nutrition, and even sometimes in places you would never expect.

The Dry Blending Process

Dry blending is essentially exactly what it sounds like. In the food industry, this simply means the mixing of dry ingredients to create a “dry” product. Dry blending products—which can be anything from sauces to drinks to baking mixtures and more—are easy to make and easy to use.

Typically you need only add water or something sort of liquid ingredient to the dry product to create a delicious addition to any meal.

The Benefits of Dry Blending

Not only is dry blending easy, but also it is incredibly cost effective and thus affordable for consumers. The dry ingredients are cheap to make, so companies have no need to charge consumers exorbitant amounts of money for something small and delicious.

Furthermore, as there is very little within dry blended products that can rot or go stale, dry blended items can last far longer than any other food products, including canned items, and thus are even more cost efficient than you would think. They also typically come in small packages, and as such as incredibly easy to store since they take up very little cabinet space.

One may be wary of dry blend products—what about the taste? There is no need to fear, though—dry blending does not affect the taste of the ingredients used. Everything you can make with dry blended products tastes just as delicious, but take less than half the time to prepare and cook.

The purpose of dry blending dehydrated foods is to maximize nutritional value, taste, and to save consumers time in a world that is constantly on the move.

Who Uses Dry Blending?

The low cost and simplicity of dry blending means that a large amount of the food industry utilizes this process, and probably in ways you would not normally anticipate.

For instance, coffee vending machines—the ones you may stop at on your way to work if you are in a hurry—are usually dry blend coffee with hot water. However, does the taste suffer? No! That quick and cheap coffee saved you time and money without sacrificing taste.

Many restaurants use dry blending for their spices, especially quick service locations. Again, the safety and low cost makes this a great solution for businesses without sacrificing customer health or satisfaction.

Taco seasoning, spice mixtures, “just add water” baking concoctions—all of these are examples of every day dry blending products that the world at large uses. The food industry uses dry blending to its fullest extent, and research continues to expand knowledge of dry blending possibilities.

Everyone’s Favorite, the Cappuccino

The Origins of Cappuccino

Originating in Austria, the cappuccino is easily one of the world’s favourite coffee drinks. Typically made of double espresso shots and steamed milk, the drink provides a perfect balance of taste and caffeine to people across the globe.

Originally called “kapuziner”, a German name, the drink as we generally know it first appeared in Viennese coffee shops sometime in the 1700s. Cappuccino, as a name, comes from the Italian word “cappuccino”, meaning hood, and is believed to have been inspired by a Capuchin monk—hence the name.

In its original form, the cappuccino (then “kapuziner”) was found in German and Austria coffee houses, and was first described as simply “coffee with milk and sugar”, with no other mention of it composition or how it was created. When it pops up in writing again in the 1850s, it is described similarly, but with the addition of spices, though there is no mention of exactly which spices those may have been.

The name “kapuziner”, which was inspired by the Capuchin monks as previously mentioned, refers not to the actual hood of the monks but rather the colour of the hood, which was similar to the colour of the drink after the milk was added.

From Kapuziner to Cappuccino

The Italian variation of the cappuccino does not appear until the 1930s, and it appears to resemble a Viennese coffee with whipped cream which is then sprinkled with cinnamon or chocolate. Over the next few decades, the drink evolved into the basis of the cappuccino as we know it, with the steamed milk covering.

North Americans originally mistook the steamed milk “cover” as the basis for the name, believing the white covering to be the “monk’s hood”, though of course that was later discovered to not be the case.
