Nutritionals like organic and amino acids, are components or derivatives of food products, and have health benefits or value in the consumer market. These products are often extracted from whole foods such as green tea or fruit, or generated by fermentation.
Dow Water & Process Solutions offers a wide range of membranes, adsorbents and ion exchange resins to recover, isolate and purify nutritional products, helping your plant achieve higher yield and consistent quality.
NUTRITION SPECIALTY MARKETSWhether we’re putting our organic mechanics to work on new extraction methods or helping you produce essential amino acids, you can count on Dow Water & Process Solutions to be at the very forefront of the latest and greatest recovery, isolation and purification methods.
Amino Acids (Lysine)
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid and is commercially important as a nutritional supplement in animal feeds. It is produced via fermentation and recovered with a strong acid cation (SAC) resin.
Dow Water & Process Solutions offers a wide range of SAC exchange resins specifically designed for the recovery and purification of L-lysine.

Citric and lactic acids are large volume, organic acids used primarily in the food and beverage industry as acidulants and preservatives. These organic acids are produced by fermentation that yields a product of crude purity that requires additional refining.
Dow Water & Process solutions provide a full range of IX products that have proven successful in the manufacture of organic acids. Typical IX processes include a strong acid cation (SAC) exchange resin and a weak base anion (WBA) exchange resin. Polymeric adsorbents have also been used to decolorize citric acid.
