2023, Thermoplastic food extrusion, questions, and answers – A simplified approach (Atena Editora)
During my professional activity, as a researcher in the food extrusion field, I have served numerous external customers during more than 30 years of activity in this area. Precisely to answer, with the main answers, the main doubts of most of these customers, the idea of publishing this small treaty was born, with the intention of clarifying as far as possible, in a simplified way, for your better understanding. Most of these entrepreneurs have heard about the extrusion process, and they want to produce some type of product, however, when consulting the manufacturer, they find that there is a very large diversity of equipment available on the market, many of them with high budgets. The question then arises of defining which one would be the most appropriate, or even whether it would be feasible to produce a particular product. On the other hand, a certain agro-industrial producer realizes that he has large volumes of by-products resulting from a particular manufacturer and that he believes it would be interesting to add value through extrusion. Of course, different by-products can be used, however, not all material is able to pass through the extrusion system, or not everything that is available would be viable. The characteristics of the raw materials to be processed can also direct the type of equipment that must be considered, that is, an extruder can be very useful for a certain product and without great effect for other types of materials. This is related to the configuration of the extrusion system. In this sense, the objective of this book is to try to answer, as far as possible, in a simple way, to the entrepreneur, or to those interested in the technique, the main doubts related to extrusion technology. It is hoped that, with this reading, the reader has understood the different nuances presented, and the ways to differentiate the equipment, parameters, and products, since extrusion technology is one of the most versatile in the industrial production of food for both human and animal consumption.

Extrusion processing play the important role in food processing for the manufacturing of pasta, textured vegetable protein (TVP), ready to eat products such as snacks produced from cereals, in which baby foods, breakfast cereals, dietary fibre, pet foods, cereal based modified starch and traditional products. Extrusion technology is a food processing operation which is carried out by the combination of different operations such as mixing, shaping, kneading, forming and cooking. Extrusion cooking helps to lower the microorganism activity and helps in enzyme inactivation. Extrusions have impact on the qualities of food products due to high temperature. The major impact is on nutritional qualities along with physiochemical properties. As the nature of protein, starches and other constituents will be changed due to alteration in chemical structure. Various types of extruder are utilised for production of extruded items. The extrusion is classified according to two basis i.e. operation a...

The extrusion cooking technology plays an vital role in food processing for the developed of new and innovative food products like pasta, Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP), RTE such as snacks produced from cereals, baby foods, breakfast cereals, pet foods, dietary fibre, modified starch based products and traditional food products. The sequence of many different processes such as sorting, mixing, kneading, shaping, making and cooking are carried out in extrusion processing. Extrusion cooking aids to reduce the microbial activity and supports in enzymatic inactivation. Extrusion technology has a major effect on the potentials of food because of high temperature. The effect is on nutritional properties along with chemical properties of the food material. Due to alteration in chemical structure, the properties of starches, protein, and other ingredients will be modified. Extruder is a physical device which permits the ingredient or food material through some particular die and the newly prepared food material with the help of extruder are recognized as extruded. In this, we focus on the extrusion technique followed in some food processing industries along with different types of extrusion and effects of extrusion processing on many diverse properties of extruded food products.

Extrusion cooking, as a multi-step, multi-functional and thermal/mechanical process, has permitted a large number of food applications. Effects of extrusion cooking on nutritional quality are ambiguous. Beneficial effects include destruction of antinutritional factors, gelatinisation of starch, increased soluble dietary fibre and reduction of lipid oxidation. On the other hand, Maillard reactions between protein and sugars reduce the nutritional value of the protein, depending on the raw material types, their composition and process conditions. Heat-labile vitamins may be lost to varying extents. Changes in proteins and amino acid profile, carbohydrates, dietary fibre, vitamins, mineral content and some non-nutrient healthful components of food may be either beneficial or deleterious. The present paper reviews the mechanisms underlying these changes, as well as the influence of process variables and feed characteristics. Mild extrusion conditions (high moisture content, low residence time, low temperature) improve the nutritional quality, while high extrusion temperatures (200 °C), low moisture contents (<15%) and/or improper formulation (e.g. presence of high-reactive sugars) can impair nutritional quality adversely. To obtain a nutritionally balanced extruded product, careful control of process parameters is essential.

The effects of feed moisture, screw speed, and barrel temperature on physical properties of extruded corn flour and soy protein isolate (SPI) blends were investigated in a co-rotating twin-screw extruder using a response surface methodology. Corn flour and SPI were mixed with a ratio of 4:1. The screw speed was set at five levels between 60 and 140 rpm, barrel temperature between 140 °C and 180 °C, and feed moisture between 18% and 38%. All physical properties of the extruded material evaluated—included expansion ratio, bulk density, breaking strength, water solubility index, rehydration ratio, and color—were significantly (p

ABSTRACTExtruded snacks were made from five blends of millet and legume at varying moisture content (12, 15, 18, 21 and 24%, wet basis [wb]). The percent of legume in the blends were, 12, 16, 20, 24 and 28. Designed experiments were conducted based on central composite rotatable design to determine the optimum processing condition with respect to the expansion ratios of the extrudates. A single-screw laboratory Brabender DA47055 (Duisburg, Germany) extruder was operated at different die head temperatures (160–200C), barrel temperatures (100–140C) and screw speeds (100–140 rpm). The optimum processing conditions obtained using response surface methodology were: moisture content – 19%, wb; blend ratio – 15.7% legume; die head temperature – 190C; barrel temperature – 136.5C and screw speed – 140 rpm. The corresponding expansion ratios viz. specific length,sectional expansion index, longitudinal expansion index and volumetric expansion index were 64.3, 5.5, 0.6 and 3.3, respectively.Ext...

Product temperature is a very important system parameter as well as an indicator of extrusion process. In this study, the product temperature response of a single screw extruder developed locally was investigated for the extrusion process of the flour and starch of maize. A factorial experiment in completely randomized design was employed to study the effect of extrusion variables: feed moisture (30, 40, 50 %), extruder temperature (40, 70, 100oC) built up by varying the duration of sampling and screw speed (100, 150, 200 rpm) on product temperature. Product temperature increased with increase in duration of operation. A maximum temperature of 150oC was attained in 30 minutes through viscous dissipation Also, the study revealed that the product temperature is strongly related to the extrusion process parameters under study and the proximate composition of samples. Also, Product temperature increased at 100 and 150 rpm but decreased at 200 rpm. The equations relating the various depe...

Extrusion cooking of fish and rice-flour blends in a single-screw cooking extruder was studied under a wide range of variables of barrel temperature, screw speed, fish content and feed-moisture content which ranged from 100 to 200C, 70–110 rev/min, 5–45% and 20–60%, respectively. Experiments based on rotatable design showed that the physical properties of expansion ratio, bulk density, hardness and water solubility index (WSI) were significantly affected by all the process variables except screw speed. Barrel temperatures greater than 180C and feed moistures less than 58% result in a steep increase in expansion ratio and a decrease in bulk density. At a fish content of 5% and feed-moisture content of less than 52.5%, the hardness values decreased. When the WSI is at 40–42% of fish content and the feed-moisture content is less than 55%, a steep increase was noticed, but a maximum WSI value of 11.5% was observed at a fish content of 41.37% and a feed-moisture content of 35%.
Mechanisms to support fish food production are constantly evolving with increasing available technologies. However, extruders for fish feed production with pineapple pomace are based on complex operating conditions and present difficulties in confirming design parameters. This paper aims at developing and testing single screw extruder capable of producing fish feed. The design theory of single-screw extruder geometry has led to the construction and discussion of the capabilities of current design techniques for the production of fish feed. The machine identifies clear speeds that are suitable for screws that use pineapple pomace based as internal materials. The performance of the extruder is greatly affected by the increase in die size and pomace. Regression equations of dependences were created for all these two significant criteria and costs per kilogram of processed feed mash were calculated. Optimum efficiency (87%) occurred at die size (8 mm) and pineapple pomace inclusion (16%...

Effects of extrusion variables on extrudate characteristics of fish muscle-rice flour blend containing intermediate moisture (30–50%) were studied in an indigenously developed single screw cooking extruder. Data analysis of the statistically designed response surface experiments showed that expansion ratio and bulk density of extrudates were most influenced by the barrel temperature followed by fish content of the feed. In contrast fish and moisture contents of the feed significantly influenced hardness. A set of optimum process conditions was arrived at 160C barrel temperature, 12% fish content and 27% moisture content. Under these conditions experimental expansion ratio and bulk density matched well with the values predicted from the response model, but hardness deviated significantly. Experimental properties of the extrudates were not, however, affected by the fish variety.

Three isocaloric (3.5 kcal/g) ingredient blends containing 20, 30, and 40% distiller-dried grains with solubles (DDGS) along with 5% whey were prepared with a net protein content adjusted to 28% (wet basis [wb]). Other ingredients in the blends included soy flour, corn flour, fish meal, vitamin, and mineral mix. These blends were extruded in a single-screw extruder at 15, 20, and 25% (wb) moisture content and at 130 and 160 rpm screw speeds. Compared to previous research, the durability and unit density of the extrudates in this study were found to increase substantially by the addition of whey to the blends. Increasing the DDGS content from 20 to 40% resulted in a 5.8 and 16.8% increase in extrudate moisture content and redness, respectively, but produced a decrease of 11.2% in brightness and 3.6% in yellowness of the extrudates. Increasing the moisture content of the ingredient blends from 15 to 25% resulted in an increase of 16.1, 8.7, and 9.3% in moisture content, durability, and redness, respectively, but a decrease of 9.8 and 5.6%, respectively, in brightness and yellowness of the extrudates. Neither DDGS level nor screw speed significantly affected extrudate durability or unit density. In fact, changing the screw speed had no significant effect on many of the properties of the extrudates studied, except for moisture content, redness, and yellowness. As demonstrated in this study, ingredient moisture content and screw speed are critical considerations when producing extrudates with feed blends containing DDGS; further work is needed to optimize processing conditions and to produce floating feeds.
