Science and Innovation

Whether we are forming a premix or a specialized blend, science and innovation play a key role in the development of each product we make. We evaluate the properties of ingredients to better understand how they behave in a mix. We use innovation to bring in new quality procedures, equipment and protocols to ensure safety in every batch.  


At Trouw Nutrition, we use our knowledge of vitamins and minerals to put together premixes, base blends and specialty blends for our customers. Each time we make a product, we evaluate the vitamin sources and properties as well as the factors affecting stability. For trace mineral sources and properties, we know the mixability of ingredients and premixes. Understanding the role carriers, diluents and binders is crucial in making a quality mix where all factors are evaluated to make sure we have looked at the quality measures to ensure superior quality mixes.
