The milling process will allow you to achieve the target size of your ingredient. At this point measurments of bulk density, moisture level and visually desireable form can be determimed.
Consistency & uniformity of a blend is of paramount importance to us here at Finesse Mills.
Finesse Mills, offers a wide variety of blending capabilities for its customers from powder blends, tea bag blends, cut and sift blends to specialized blends. Different types of blends offer different types of challenges. Blending is truly and art.
Here are a few important things that need to be considered when blending your product. One thing is the type of filling equipment that you will be using to pack your product in. Also careful consideration should be given to evaluate the infusibility of your mixture or the dissolveability of your mixture. All these things can be dialed into the process.
Our innovative techniques in blending allow you to optimize your cut sizes and the distribution of your ingredients.
Many ingredients can only be properly used if particles of inappropriate sizes are separated from the overall array of its particle sizes. Sifting can eliminate powders or eliminate large undesirable particles. Sifting is performed many times in conjunction with milling. It is also a way of cleaning out undesirable ingredients.
Finesse Mills offers Additional Custom Services such as demetalizing ferrous metals, separating long fibers from granular particles and sizing materials on a custom basis.
Organic Heat Treatment
We have designed an organic heat treatment process for our customers that have ingredients that require microbial reduction. This process has saved thousands of dollars of potentially lost product for our customers.
Our organic process gently allows one to apply a controlled microbial reduction so as to maximise and protect the nutritive or flavor integrity of the ingredients or blend.
It is our objective to enhance food safety and continue to use valuable ingredients while maintaining the vital life force found in freshly cultivated botanicals.

We offer a variety of types of pelletized granulation processes.
Our single ingredient process reduces powder waste and cost of your valuable ingredients. Ingredients once disposed of after milling can now be recaptured and retained for use in your products. These particles can retain 100% organic status.
Our multi – ingredient combination process such as tea blend powders or a custom granule, can be a combination blend of ingredients and designed to allow one to create unique flavors. This can be specially beneficial for hard to work with ingredients that are run on various types of filling equipment.
