Food Ingredients

Innovative processes satisfying today's and tomorrow's needs.

Our extrusion systems are a key process in feeding millions of people around the world. From meat substitutes, modified flours, starches and breadcrumbs, to upcycling side streams, we are at the heart of alternative proteins and food ingredient processing.

 

Processing starch- or protein-based raw materials by extrusion creates a wide variety of useful product properties. The flexibility offered by our twin-screw extruders and the process expertise of our technicians can bring your food-ingredient application and plant-based meat to a single easy-to-manage process flow chart. Our complete solutions include blending & mixing, conditioning, extrusion (cooking and shaping), drying and toasting, grinding, sieving as well as storage and packaging.

Texturization of plant-based proteins

Our extruding processes can modify the molecular structure of your plant-based proteins to create the texture you need. Proteins can be premixed with additional ingredients such as flours, food colorants, flavorings, minerals, or emulsifiers before being conditioned and extruded.

Modified flours and starches

Our extrusion solutions can help you create modified flours and starches, (swelling flour/starch) to provide the modified water absorption and viscosity properties you need for sauces, soups and instant beverages. The viscosity of each suspension is tailored to your specific product needs.

Breadings, filling and binders for different uses

The selection of the extrusion parameters and raw material formulations dictate the appropriate grinding of the extrudates for the production of breadcrumbs for different uses. Our solutions allow you to adjust the texture, pores, color, and particle size distribution for your end product.
