BCH has developed a new 100% fruit cooking and extrusion system for the manufacture of healthy snack products. This is in response to the latest customer trends for natural, organic and clean ingredient labels.
The system is a combination of BCH's MaxiVap Evaporator technology, (used for long running caramel plants) and liquorice extrusion technology.
The fruit cooling and extrusion system enables the evaporation of high moisture fruit mixes to typically 85% solids, at which point they have the consistency of soft dough which can then be extruded. This then enables the production of a healthy snack bar using 100% fruit ingredients which can e co-extruded in a variety of different colours, shapes and flavours.
