We make high quality food possible.

Baby Food

Safety is of the utmost importance to us in the sensitive sector of baby food! It is becoming increasingly important that MOSH/MOAH, pesticides and plasticisers are not used. Thanks to our ultra-modern state-of-the-art technology, our facility makes products safe.

In early summer 2020, we upgraded our refining machine with a new short path distillation system, meaning we can now achieve an unprecedented level of quality with the latest process technology. The process removes impurities and isolates fatty acids at particularly low process temperatures, and can therefore avoid process contaminants while preserving micronutrients at the same time.

In short, we offer the refining of especially pure and high-quality end products with precisely balanced fatty acid distributions. This unique method of short path distillation is suitable for special high-purity products, such as those required in baby food. Only in this way can even pesticides of a high molecular weight be carefully removed. The system has also been adapted to special customer needs and made more flexible. In addition to refining high-purity fats and oils, another focus is on the optimum adjustment of the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids and the preservation of micronutrients.

Chocolate

The chocolate industry is also looking for alternatives to palm oil. We can offer these to our customers. The challenge is to achieve confectionery products with good cocoa butter compatibility, as well as melting and crystallisation properties. For the palm-free alternatives, we use different modification processes and sophisticated combinations of seed oils, cocoa butter and also lauric fats, if required.

When producing recipes for your fillings, couvertures and glazes, we always apply the following guideline: fat components that are tailored for the requirements of your system setup, and outstanding melting properties, high temperature stability and excellent sensory characteristics for your end products.

To this end, we use tried-and-tested lauric and non-lauric raw materials or even palmfree alternatives, because  we make high-quality products.

Baked Goods

The use of palm oil and palm oil fractions in confectionery, baked goods (especially puff pastry), spreads and popular chocolate hazelnut spreads is a challenging issue. Alongside rapeseed oil, fully hydrogenated rapeseed oil and, if necessary, coconut oil is also used. However, we use tried and trusted compositions with palm-based components which always come from selected, sustainably cultivated sources and optionally also from organic cultivations.

The precise way in which the profile of an oil is modified or whether a special mixture is developed depends on the individual use. The fat content should make baked goods pliable. For industrial or artisan methods of manufacturing baked goods, we produce refined, hydrogenated or fractionated shortening and margarines for baking with a low trans fat content. They are deliberately crystallised and, depending on the type of dough and desired processing properties, they are highly malleable or homogeneous with an easy-to-process structure.

We offer a wide range of product-specific processing properties for commercial and industrial manufacture.

Nutraceuticals & Pharma

The global demand for food supplements such as high-quality omega-3 from plant, fish and algae oil sources is growing steadily.

We advocate pure products and are the market leader in the careful processing of oils at low temperatures.

Our processes and procedures are subject to constant optimisation and validation. As a contracted processor, we also offer our experience of refining even difficult oils and reducing or in fact eliminating even stubborn contamination internationally. With the highest degree of purity, very good oxidation stability and completely neutral sensory characteristics, we are also able to satisfy our customers in the pharmaceutical sector.

We have invested in complementary technologies to meet the most exacting quality requirements. Since early summer 2020, we have been offering the short path distillation system. This is used if the product needs to meet particularly strict requirements or is contaminated to such an extent that it cannot be used. The short process time means that the thermal load remains low, and process contaminants such as trans fatty acids and chlorinated fatty acid esters (3-MCPD) cannot form.
The highest quality from raw material to end product is important to us. Our expertise in the purchase of raw materials and carefully controlled and selected raw material sourcing are essential. When sourcing our own raw materials, we rely on selected, long-term cooperation with producers and suppliers of raw materials and market-leading logistics with tracking right to the origin.
 

Our most important products in this segment include oils rich in omega-3, such as algae and fish oils with a high DHA content and unrivalled, neutral sensory characteristics

Cosmetics

Our modification technologies, flexibility and diversity in oils and fats also make us an ideal partner for the cosmetics industry. With our expertise and our own development and technical laboratory, we provide support to our customers in new projects. As such, we have the right solution for every customer.

Private Label production

We strongly believe that the contract manufacturing between the client and the manufacturer of oils and fats must be a simple, pleasant and, above all, problem-free experience. Thanks to many years of experience, Nutriswiss AG has mastered the manufacturing process of oils and fats in accordance with the current technical and nutritional requirements.

The sheer range of possibilities and expertise means we can offer our customers a unique service package. We would also be happy to produce own brands for you. In addition to top service, our Nutriswiss Quality Standard also guarantees numerous benefits for our customers:

  • Selected raw materials and supply chains and the proper handling of raw materials provided.
  • Making existing packaging/formats available on our systems.
  • Controlled/certified process management of various labels (Kosher, Halal, RSPO, Bio, Fair Trade, etc.).
  • Fast product delivery times thanks to the best technology and consistent use of our processes.
  • Storage or just-in-time deliveries.
  • Looking after customs formalities for customers outside of Switzerland.
  • Swiss made – quality that is made in Switzerland.

We would also be happy to help and support you with the product idea or task itself. Our extremely well-equipped development laboratories map all production processes on a laboratory scale. This is accompanied by extensive, state-of-the-art physical and chemical measurement technology. Last but not least, this is all controlled, operated and interpreted by our outstandingly creative and experienced employees. These are the perfect conditions for:

  • Implementing your product briefing.
  • Developing differentiated solutions for your project.   
  • Hand-in-hand development from idea to small sample, scale-up production to market launch, and much more.

Processing options

During the refining process neutralisation, bleaching and deodorisation are mainly used to remove undesirable impurities from selected vegetable oils and fats. In addition to traditional refining methods, to enable us to produce customised products to our clients' specification, we also offer the following modification steps, separately or in combination:

  • Fractionation
  • Hydrogenation
  • Transesterification
  • 3-MCPD ester reduction
  • Crystallisation or formulation
  • Short Path Distillation 

The combination of the different fats and oils and the modification steps enable us to achieve products that, thanks to their precise fatty acid profiles, meet the customers' requirements in terms of melting and crystallisation.

The standard range is produced from the following raw materials:

Vegetable-based raw materials

Research & development

In addition to our own QA laboratory, we also run an independent development laboratory. Here, we are able to perform each of the modification steps, such as fractionation, transesterification and hydrogenation, on a pilot scale, to enable us to offer our customers tailor- made solutions.

We are also able to provide full support for your project right up to market launch. We can start with a scale-up of a 1 kg laboratory prototype of refining quality, and take the product through to the factory testing stage. In addition to working closely with our customers, we also maintain contact with institutions of higher education in Switzerland.
