Direct Expanded Cereals
Ingredients are texturized and cooked through a combination of heat, mechanical shear and moisture addition. Flavours and colours can be added easily.
Cereals are glazed or coated by atomized spraying systems and rotating drum before the product is dried.
A final dryer is specified to dry the coated products.
- Extruded Cereals
The Baker Perkins Cereal Master EX™ extruder process is a low cost point of entry to the expanding breakfast cereals market.
The Baker Perkins twin-screw SBX Master™ extruder cooks the ingredients using a combination of heat, mechanical shear and moisture addition; flavours and colours can be added directly into the barrel. Manufacturers can choose from the full array of grain and rice as the basis for an extensive cereal portfolio.
Twin-screw extrusion is a highly versatile, economic process that successfully produces a broad variety of expanded cereals throughout the world. Typical cereals include corn balls, multi grain rings, alphabet shapes, cocoa curls, cocoa balls and oat rings.
Baker Perkins' extruders are a low cost-of-ownership tool allowing a wide range of products to be made with simple product changeover. Cereal lines are designed to be simply expanded or adapted on a modular basis to increase output or expand a product range. Utilising Baker Perkins’ depth of process expertise, co-extrusion equipment, flaking rolls, cookers and dryers can be added to the Cereal Master EX™ line to make a wide range of high-specification products. A coating system is also an option for adding value through frosting or glazing.
Performance and reliability are maintained throughout, making Cereal Master™ the ideal system for cereal manufacturers of every size.
Many Baker Perkins customers also visit the Innovation Centre at Peterborough, where equipment available for trial and development purposes enables existing product portfolios to be refreshed, and new ones created.
