Extrusion cooking describes the variety of ingredients that are processed to create snacks and ready-to-eat foods, including maize, tapioca, peas, potatoes, and wheat. After extrusion, these snacks are processed and turned into food items that have already been partially or fully cooked. It helps to remove natural toxins and microorganisms while also enhancing the health of those foods, making them safe to eat.


Complex midday meals have given way to office snacks because of long workdays and modern lifestyles. This shift has led to a rise in the demand for foods that are ready to eat, such as extruded snack foods that don't require any additional preparation. Snacks are now available from manufacturers in a variety of packaging options, including single-serve bags, mini-packs, and family packs. These tearable sachets and the quick-to-eat goodies further boost portability.


Consumers in the Middle East and North Africa region appear to be more concerned with their health and wellbeing as a result of the introduction of a variety of nutritious extruded snacks. These include gluten-free, organic products made without genetic modification, vegan options, and snacks with low sugar and fat content, which is further catalysing the Middle East and North Africa extruded snack food market growth.
