Extrusion has developed as an essential process in the manufacturing of various food products. This process generally leads to the puffing and changing of texture of the food product. Some of the extruded snack food products are French fries, pasta, oats, corn curls, crispy flat breads, jelly beans, toffees, etc. Along with being tasty, these extruded snack foods are cost-friendly, can be easily cooked and have a high starch content.
