Canadian plant-based company Above Food, has announced the acquisition of Sonic Milling Systems, a food technology company focused on developing processing techniques for plant-based ingredients and products.
Sonic Milling uses water and pressure to create microscopic air bubbles capable of breaking apart a diverse range of ingredients such as grain, pulses, fruits, and vegetables into clean-label liquids and sauces without the need for stabilizers or added oils.
Lionel Kambeitz, CEO and executive chairman of Above Food commented, “We’ve been searching for the last two years to uncover an alternative to conventional fractionated protein concentrates and were focused on technology that increases the bio-availability of the native nutrients and proteins found in pulses, grains, and vegetables. Sonic Milling has done just that, in the protein beverage space and we’re excited to expand the application of this groundbreaking technology across our portfolio of our specialty ingredients, private labeled products and consumer brands”.
