Huber Engineered Materials, a division of J.M. Huber Corporation, is launching two super carrier silicon dioxides at the upcoming IFT Annual Meeting + Food Expo in Chicago July 13-16. Zeofree PLUS 5191 and Zeofree PLUS 5193 silicon dioxides are engineered to deliver outstanding performance by providing excellent carrying capacity for liquids, while delivering superior anti-caking and free-flow properties for the most challenging powdered food and industrial applications.

ZeofreePLUS 5191 is a carrier in the form of spray-dried powder with an average particle size of 25 microns, while ZeofreePLUS 5193 is a conditioning agent in the form of milled powder with an average particle size of 14 microns. Both products provide outstanding carrying capacity at three times their weight as liquids.

“As our society becomes more mobile, the demand for convenience and on-the-go food products continues to soar,” said Frank Burkus, global marketing director for Huber’s Silica business. “Our new ZeofreePLUS 5191 and 5193 grades set the bar in terms of performance for silicon dioxide carriers and free-flow agents and are the latest demonstration of Huber’s commitment to enabling our customers to satisfy market trends.”

Huber personnel will be managing booth 3525 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South discussing the new super carrier silicon dioxides along with a board line of other anti-caking and free-flow agents and silica grade deformers available for various food-related applications. For more information on ZeofreePLUS 5191 and 5193, email or call 1-800-704-8254.
