Food Extrusion Technology

 
  July 06, 2017  
     
 
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Chicago, IL
October 12-13, 2017


Who Should Attend?
This course is designed to explain the fundamentals of food extrusion and illustrate the application to food processing operations. The program will be of particular value to:

  • Food Scientists, Technologists, Technicians and Engineers working in R&D and Operations involved with food extruders
  • Individuals employed by cereal, snack, pet food, confectionery, modified starches and proteins manufacturers

The course will also appeal to professionals working in allied industries, equipment manufacturers and ingredient suppliers involved with food extrusion. 

Course Description
Food extrusion has become a very important processing operation. Today, the food extruder is used to produce pasta and other cold formed products, ready-to eat cereals, snacks, pet food, aquatic feeds, confectionery products, modified starches for soup, infant food and instant foods, beverage bases and texturized vegetable proteins. This course is designed to provide a thorough background in extrusion principles and practice. Details of both single and twin screw extrusion of foods will be covered. Emphasis will be placed on describing the basic scientific and process engineering principles to extrusion operation in a simple, clear and concise approach that enables good understanding of the extrusion process.

This fundamental approach will lead directly to the discussion of the control and operation of extruders to optimize production and product quality.

The chemical nature and modifications of food components making up the ingredients commonly used in extrusion operations will be described. Combined with a better understanding of extrusion principles, the course should lead to better understood, controlled and optimum extrusion operation.
