Base Blends

Base blends can include a variety of ingredients such as vitamins, trace minerals, salts, fruits, vegetables, amino acids, select protein meals, and specialty carbohydrates. Ingredients and inclusion levels vary depending on your needs. We can optimize nutrients with base blends for efficiency and convenience by utilizing our blending expertise and ingredient intelligence. 

Why should you use base blends?

By combining all your ingredients into a base blend, you can dramatically decrease the number of hand-adds and weight measurements, which markedly improves your manufacturing efficiencies and safety by minimizing spots for errors. These types of mixes simplify your production so employees can pour one single blend instead of numerous hand-adds slowed down by ingredient weighing. You reduce their task time and decrease your risk, saving money on labor costs and investigations into quality control issues.

Base blends are typically included in diets from 3% to 40%.
