Nuts are real powerhouses. Chock-full of vitamins, proteins, minerals, and healthy fats, they are an ideal snack for sports and also mental gymnastics. Vegan, gluten-free, and low-carb, nuts can be integrated into almost any diet. No wonder they are becoming increasingly popular. According to Statista, the portal for market data, a per-capita consumption of 1.1 kilograms worldwide is expected in 2021. And the trend is continuing to grow with sales forecasted to grow by over 3 percent per year by 2025.
To make this snack safe and tasty, Bühler developed the Solano roaster and pasteurizer. In doing so, the Bühler team was able to draw on its many years of experience in roasting nuts and on its expertise in roasting cocoa beans and coffee. Solano also has some features that are new for this type of nut processing. For example, the ability to create individual roasting profiles. This has long been an established practice in coffee roasting and is an indispensable process. In the nut market, consumers are only now benefiting from this thanks to the Solano roaster.
