Videos in the Common Issues with RTD Beverages Series


From 2007-2016 we’ve seen an almost 500% growth in dairy ready to drink (RTD) beverage launches.

But there are a few problems hindering continued growth.

Here’s one of them.

Age Gelation. After a few short months, the liquid gels into a mass that cannot be returned to its liquid state.

What causes age gelation?

Many RTD beverages use UHT processing. During this process it’s believed that the milk proteins likely form links to one another which later results in gelation.

Ticaloid® Pro 192 AGD is an excellent way to suppress age gelation in these shelf-stable beverages thereby increasing the product’s shelf life. This will also help to stabilize beverages with high protein and increased nutritional oil.
