Baker Perkins’ modular Snack Master line makes direct-expanded snacks such as corn curls, chip sticks and maize rings. Snack manufacturers can also extend the line in stages to broaden the range of items they can produce, including both traditional styles and the new generation of healthy snacks. A new process makes a range of extruded products using an innovative die that produces a thin, wide sheet of dough that is cut into regular, geometric shapes by an in-line rotary cutter. The shapes may be fried as a conventional snack or oven-baked to produce low-fat snacks.
