I work for a small company that produces fruit based products. We have been having difficulties mixing in a soluble vegetable fibre - lumps occur with the way we mix. The product we are mixing it into does not have any additional water or dry ingredients. We use fruit concentrate as the liquid ingredient that the fibre is mixed into. At the moment we tip the fibre into the top of a mixing tank (with paddle agitation) and the fibre sticks to the paddles and then forms lumps which fall into the product. I was wondering if anyone out there has another way of incorporating vegetable fibre or gums into liquid that doesn't cause lumps?
