Extruded Flakes

Baker Perkins’ process options for the production of corn flakes, wheat flakes and bran flakes include a twin–screw extruder with an extended barrel.

This technique combines cooking, cooling and pellet forming in a single twin-screw extruder to provide a compact system suitable for the majority of extruded breakfast cereal flakes.

For high output and some multigrain flakes, separate cooking and forming extruders continue to be the preferred option.
