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.

Health CanadaAs a Canadian company primarily selling to the Canadian market, the standards of the food industry here are our greatest priority. The Natural and Non-Prescription Health Products Directorate has established the Natural Health Products Regulations in order to provide Canadian consumers with effective, safe and high-quality products.

These regulations include licensing requirements, evidence of safety and efficacy policies, clear and inclusive labeling, and full site licensing. They also outline what good manufacturing practices are, including proper sanitation programs, batch samples, recall reporting, product specifications, equipment and personnel standards, operations, stability and recording. Adhering closely to these regulations has provided an easy guide to safety and quality for Dure Foods.

Another set of safety standards Dure Foods complies with is the British Retail Consortium standard, created by the Global Food Safety Initiative’s Technical Committee. This standard has been accepted by 8 major international retailers including Wal-Mart and Tesco, among others.

Suppliers throughout the world in The Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, both North and South America, Australia and the Pacific islands use this standard as it has become extremely beneficial for all different kinds of players in the industry.

The BRC was created out of identified key components for operating procedures and food safety. Adherence to these guidelines earns a company a BRC certificate. The BRC is flexible enough to be able to constantly change to meet the current food environment and adhere to high customer standards while still providing a simple process for manufacturers to follow.
