Processing of naturally occurring food often requires a great deal of effort, which the end consumer usually does not see. Examples include rice and cereals, but pulses such as chickpeas and soybeans must also be freed from digestive inhibitors before they can be consumed. Our hydrothermal reactors are used for this purpose. By the combination of moisture, retention time and pressure, the product is treated in such a way that inhibitors are reduced and a higher protein solubility or starch modification is achieved.
AMANDUS KAHL uses single-screw extruders for the production of cereals and snacks. These make it possible to produce snacks by means of the traditional cooking process with subsequent flaking. Prior to the extrusion process, the grain meals are mixed with further components, afterwards conditioned if required and exactly proportioned into the extruder. In the extruder the components are kneaded and cooked, at the outlet they are shaped and cut.
Another important sector for the production of food are instant products and nutritional supplements. This is where our pelleting press comes in, which facilitates storage, processing and transport of powdery products. This procedure therefore makes it possible to save numerous costs.
