How do we make Ecomil plant-based drink powder?

Our Instant range of organic plant-based drinks in powdered form is the most sustainable way of consuming them. Why? Quite simply, a single pot of Ecomil Instant contains the amount needed to make the same amount of plant-based drink as you would find in 4 bricks. This means a significant reduction in transport, less CO2 emitted and, obviously, less use of materials in the packaging..

Now that you know why plant-based drinks are the most efficient way of consuming plant-based drinks, you will surely also want to know how we make them. It’s a very simple and ingredient-friendly process called Spray Dry.

How do we make the plant-based drink powder?

The Spray Dry process is a very efficient drying process, which consists of turning the liquid into a spray (droplets), and passing the spray through a stream of hot air. These droplets lose all moisture through the heat, and the product is obtained in powder form.

The advantage of this method over other methods is that, by converting the entire liquid mass into droplets, there is more contact surface between the liquid and the hot air. By increasing the contact surface, the moisture evaporation process takes less time. Therefore, being a faster treatment, the product heats up less and suffers less. Heat treatment can affect the taste and aroma of the product, as well as the nutritional supply of some nutrients, such as certain vitamins or antioxidants.

Therefore, it can be concluded that the Spray Dry process is more respectful of the matrix, so that when it is rehydrated, a beverage very similar to the original is obtained.
