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.
In recent years, the rapidly increasing consumption of extruded snack foods has been registered on account of several factors. Rising health consciousness among the consumers coupled with hectic lifestyles with more time spent at work has led to a change in the consumption patterns of consumers. As a result, manufacturers are coming up with healthier and nutritional options which contain healthier ingredients such as high protein foods, vegetables and legumes with relatively less cholesterol and calorie amounts. Moreover, rising population, increasing disposable incomes, urbanisation rates and a growing demand from emerging markets have further facilitated the growth of the global extruded snack food market. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the market reached a value of US$ 52 Billion in 2016 and is further expected to reach US$ 59 Billion by 2022.
