Avemar Drink Powder Lyophilizate – New product, introductory price

99.00

1 BOX, 30 SACHETS

Dietary food containing fermented wheat germ extract for special medical purposes of cancer patients to supplement clinical treatment, for daily use.

Thanks to the special freeze dry technology, except for the natural orange flavour and the stevia sweetener, our drink powder does not contain any additives or base materials. It is easily soluble and absorbable.

We recommend it for those who, due to a difficulty to swallow, prefer consuming the active ingredient in the form of a drink as opposed to a pill, who prefer stevia as a sweetener and who would like to avoid the use of even a minimal amount of additives. For those who weigh less than 90 kg, one sachet per day is recommended, so one box is sufficient for one month. It takes at least two months for the positive physiological effects to develop, so if you would like to try the product, we recommend two boxes, so that you can take Avemar without interruption for two months.

Based on the experiences and accounts of patients who have been using Avemar for a longer period of time and on our dietitian’s recommendation, we collected a number of ideas and suggestions that make the consumption of the special dietary food easier.

We hope we can help all those who might have experienced any issues while trying to consume Avemar. If you have experienced no such issues, we recommend that you use Avemar in the usual manner.  

We are always happy to hear any ideas you may have – by letter, email or telephone – so that we can share them with others.

WHAT IS LYOPHILISATION?

Lyophilisation, or freeze drying is a water removal process, typically used to preserve and extend the self life of medicine and food. Using this process, we can efficiently preserve the biological activity of materials sensitive to heat, while maintaining their optimum re-solubility properties. 

Lyophilisation is a gentle but very expensive drying technique. It requires a special lyophilising equipment, also known as a lyophilizer (see picture):

1. The material to be dried is distributed to trays and put into the lyophilizer, which is a fairly large container, usually with a transparent door.

2. In this space, separated from the outside world, the material to be dried is first cooled and frozen. 

3. The air is then sucked out of the tank, i.e. the inside of the lyophilizer, which creates a low-pressure environment around the material to be dried. The best equipments come close to creating the ideal vacuum. 

4. With the low air pressure created, the controlled evaporation of water starts. The process is characterised by the immediate formation of water vapour from the solid ice phase, leaving out the liquid phase. This phenomenon is called sublimation. Low pressure promotes the evaporation of water molecules.

5. During the drying cycle, usually sensors are used to monitor changes in the material to be dried during the drying cycle. As the drying cycle progresses, the trays are heated up, but only slightly, for example, in a gentle dryer, heating may mean a final temperature of 20 °C. 

6. At the end of the drying cycle, which normally takes about 24-48 hours, normal air pressure is restored in the lyophilisation tank and, after opening the door of the equipment, the storage trays, containing the gently dried finished product, are removed.

7. As drying processes go, freeze drying, also known as lyophilisation, is a time-consuming and costly process. However, it is one of the most gentle processes for heat-sensitive materials. The dry matter loss is very low and, in the case of most products, hardly any change takes place concerning the material nature and properties of the product.
