Virto-Cuccolini and the classification of tartaric acid

Tartaric acid is an ingredient, perhaps little known, but widely used in the food and pharmaceutical industry.

It has a natural origin; in fact, it is obtained in most cases from the grape pressing process and is included in products such as candies, jams and fruit juices to give a sour taste. It is an antioxidant and emulsifier in the baking and preparation of leavening agents for the bakery sector. It is also used in the production of wine and spirits as a balance of acidity. In pharmaceuticals, it is an ingredient of digestive effervescent together with sodium bicarbonate. Finally, it also has other applications in the agricultural industry as a component of fertilizers, in the metallurgical one to clean metal surfaces and is also an excellent retarder in the hardening process of gypsum in the construction sector.

For all these different uses, tartaric acid must be separated according to its particle size, in order to be able to provide each customer with a type of product suitable for the needs of incorporation into the product mixtures.

For this reason, Virto-Cuccolini has supported the major Italian and world producers of tartaric acid to refine its range of products with different granulometry through the supply of vibrating screens suitable for this product.

    Quality in the kitchen is combined with circular economy, thanks to the Virto-Cuccolini vibrating sieves, in bakery industry.

    Breadcrumbs are a well-known product, especially in Italy; it is prepared by grinding the bread in various degrees of fineness and is used for breading or gratinating cooked foods. It is also applied as a thickener of sauces or an ingredient for soups and condiments.

    The grain size of the grated bread particles determines the optimal use in the preparation of food and recipes. The size of the bread crumbs thus obtained must be as similar as possible, so as to help form a consistent breading when it is applied in the kitchen (normally, never less than 100 µm).

    This is where the Virto-Cuccolini vibrating screens come into play.

    Supplies already made for our C-Line and T-Line sieves in the food sector in Italy for breadcrumbs show that attention to the quality of the final product by the main bakery industries is high.

    Furthermore it is interesting to consider that the industrial bread coming out of the production line with aesthetic defects can be reused, within a circular economy concept that allows to reduce waste and obtain a new marketable and perfectly edible product: an economic principle to which Virto -Cuccolini is pleased to take part.
