Magic Crystals Magic Crystals for Easy Mixing®

The heart of our manufacturing equipment is the hydrator tower, where moisture is added to dry powder ingredients. As these less dense, re-wet particles fall down through the hydrator they stick to each other forming larger, snowflake-like agglomerates. Later, when the milk replacer powder is added to water, these larger particles literally suck up the water which causes powder to easily melt into solution. Easy to mix product saves time and results in a uniform solution.

There is also a chemical change taking place during the Milk Products manufacturing process involving transformation of alpha forms of crystalline lactose to beta forms, which are more stable. The change results in a finished product that is much more shelf-stable. These new larger particles with improved crystalline lactose are the famous "magic crystals".
