Baked Snacks Typical Production Line

High Speed Mixer

Dough is mixed with a unique, shafless mixing blade that ensures good dispersion of ingredients. Mixed dough is automatically discharged into a dough feed system or tub. In many facilities, the mixer is located on the floor above the main line: mixed dough is discharged into the dough feed through a floor chute

The conventional baked snack production process uses the sheet and cut process plus baking technology adapted from the cracker industry to offer options including shaped, savoury, crisp, oyster and pita snacks.    

Meeting demand for healthier foods

As an alternative to higher fat frying, baking maximizes the flavour and colour potential of low-fat ingredients, while the forming process offers ample opportunity to create appealing textures, plus attractive shapes and patterns

Opportunities for new ideas

The use of local and/or sustainable ingredients such as lentil, pea, and haricot or faba beans rather than the customary wheat or corn creates products with new textures, tastes and colours. High-protein snacks meet a variety of needs, including balancing diet, satiety and weight loss.

A unique production process

A standard Baker Perkins extrusion system can be extended to create a range of innovative, high value sheeted baked snacks by adding a sheeting die and rotary cutter to the line.  The die produces a very wide, thin sheet of dough, which is rotary cut before being baked and flavoured.
