The snack making machines take a series of production steps to produce various puffed cereal snacks. The corn puff production line consists of ingredients selection, mixing, extrusion, forming, baking (frying), seasoning, and other steps. The snack food processing line can complete the above steps at one time, with high production efficiency.
Puffed food introduction
Puffed snacks are made from grains such as rice, millet, soybeans through high-temperature extrusion, baking, and seasoning.
The puffed grains are convenient to store, transport,and rich in nutrients. Moreover, the puffing technology for making puffed food has the characteristics of wide application, simple process and high production output. Therefore, the extruded snacks line is also widely welcomed.
Classification of the snack processing plant
According to the maturation methods difference, the snack food making plant can be divided into baking type snack pellet production line and fried type snack food processing plant.
The deep-fried type uses fat as the heating medium to mature the grains. The baking type mainly ripen raw materials with hot air as the medium . At present, baking type is the most common way on the market. The two ways mainly dehydrate the extruded food through frying or baking. This can reduce the puffed food moisture to make sure a better quality. And it also can play a role in sterilization. The following takes baking type as an example to introduce of the puffed snacks production steps.
Corn puff production line flow chart
The extruded snacks manufacturing process including raw material selection, extrusion, molding, baking, seasoning, and packaging.
The mixer is used to mixing powdery raw materials and liquid seasonings evenly. The humidity and starch content of the raw materials will directly affect the degree of puffing. Therefore, when selecting raw materials, it is better to choose the moderate water content and starch content raw materials.
The corn puff making machine is the most important machine in puffed food manufacturing. In the corn puff cereal machine, the raw materials are steamed and shaped at high temperatures. Then it will squeeze into shapes through the holes of the mold. Therefore, you can make different puffed foods by changing different shapes molds.
Molding machine (optional)
This machine is suitable for making long strips of pasta puffed food. The long noodles made by the puffing machine are pulled to the forming machine. Then, the puff maker machine’s blade cut the long strips into small regular shapes. Customers can choose this snack making machine according to their production process.
The molded puffed snack has not yet been really matured, it needs a roasting machine for high-temperature baking and curing. The snacks baking machine can maintain snacks’ nutrients and taste.
In order to obtain a unique taste, it is necessary to use a seasoning machine for seasoning. The seasoning machine has the characteristics of continuous operation and will not damage the structure of the puffed food.
To facilitate storage and transportation, it is necessary to pack puffed food. We provide packaging machines that can produce bag and box packaging styles.
Factors affecting the quality of puffed corns
The ideal puffed food should be a product that is highly fluffy, uniform in structure, consistent in appearance, crispy taste and good flavor. However, in actual production, there are many factors that affect the quality of puffed food.
The dough composition
The protein, fat content, and moisture content in the dough affect the structure of the dough. These will ultimately affect the shape of the puffed food during puffing.
The heating speed
The heating speed and temperature should be appropriate. Too fast heating speed will vaporize water molecules quickly, causing grains to expand too quickly. As a result, the surface of the puffed food instantly loses water and hardens.
