Homogenization, otherwise known as particle size reduction, is heavility utilized in a number of industries. The next time you’re enjoying your smooth, silky body lotion, or your next deliciously creamy glass of milk, you can thank the power of homogenization. It is because of this process that particles are able to be evenly and thoroughly dispersed throughout a number of different mediums, resulting in improved texture, visual appearance, and taste, and adding up to big savings in the form of customer satisfaction and repeat business. With all of the benefits of homogenization, its no wonder that more and more industries are looking to jump on board!
