WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — Pavan Group participated in the Extrusion Platform Americas 2012 practical short course Oct. 29-30 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Luciano Mondardini’s lecture covered three topics: a general introduction on pellet snacks technology, an overview of the opportunities offered by pellet snacks in the growing fat-free snacks sector and stackable chips production technology.
The pellet snack lecture provided a comprehensive review of the wide range of solutions, in terms of shapes and formulations, offered by pellet-based snacks in the low-fat or fat-free sectors. Introducing a wider variety of raw materials to meet nutritional needs and offer very good bite products is relatively easy.
This advantage is matched by the wide range of shapes that are suitable for snacks, breakfast cereals and 'cross-over' products.
