The Pop Father

Our story began in 1989 when Mr. Lynn Hesson, a popping candy pioneer, aka “The Pop Father”, became fascinated with carbonated candy technology for food science applications in ice cream, cereals, candies and treats. Over the next decade he worked with key marketing, R&D and production staff in over 40 countries to help them develop new and innovative ways to use carbonated candy as an ingredient in a wide range of food applications. He then founded a manufacturing operation in Wisconsin using his own production specifications for producing high quality candy (now referred to as Carbonated Crystals™) in high volumes, becoming then and still the only such facility in the Western Hemisphere!

His knowledge, experience and wisdom related to carbonated crystal technology™ has now expanded into bio-actives, to further accelerate his goal of having pop crystals™, using CARBONATED CRYSTAL™, as the preferred method of delivering nutraceuticals, bio-actives and dietary supplements all over the world.

With the vision, passion and help of his four sons, Lynn and the Hesson family created PFHIX Inc, the Nutra ingredient division of the crystal manufacturing plant that creates all functional ingredients and products that POP!

PFHIX works with selected brand market leaders to deliver via Carbonated Crystals Technology™ a wide array of vitamins, minerals, nutraceuticals, antioxidants, natural botanicals and time-tested herbal extracts.
