Extruded Fruit

BCH has developed a 100% fruit cooking and extrusion system for the manufacture of healthy snack products.

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 be co-extruded in a variety of different colours, shapes and flavours.
