Patented new LTM technology

iNNutriGEL developed and designed the Low Temperature Mogul (LTM) technology. It is a new, unique and patented process which is lean, robust, fully automated and works with existing Mogul technology. Opposite to current manufacturing processes, the casting mass is mixed at room temperature, thus enabling a broader range of functional ingredients to be processed. The bulk consists of SuperStarch®, glucose syrup and natural colors and flavors.


LTM Technical Scheme

Technical Scheme: LTM process unit and depositor of a mogul plant
SuperStarch® (1) and syrup (4) are constantly fed into a continuous mixer (3) by a gravimetric feeder (2) and a liquid pump (5). The continuous mixer blends the two components to a homogenous fluid and pumps it into a pipe system. Along the pipe colorants and flavors are fed (6 and 7) into the fluid, which is homogenized by a static mixer (8). A pressure compensating device (9) regulates the flow of the casting mass between the preparation unit and the depositor (10) of the mogul plant.


All the technology is patented and includes the following patent applications:

  • IP: WO 2007/128150 Low temp. mogul Process
  • IP: WO 2010/072847 Low temp. mogul Process and also the confectionary articles producible by this process

Manufacturing hubs
