The Basic Principle of Puffing

The fundamental principle behind puffing is the rapid expansion of food particles when subjected to high heat or pressure, followed by a sudden release. This process creates a porous, lightweight structure that gives puffed foods their unique texture.

Production Process of Puffed Foods

The production of puffed foods in factories typically involves several key steps:

Material Preparation

Raw ingredients, such as cereals, starches, and flavorings, are carefully selected and mixed to create the desired recipe.


Once the mixture is ready, it is fed into an extruder machine, such as the Taizy Machine Model SL-70. This machine, which is made of stainless steel, is designed to push the mixture through a narrow die under high pressure and temperature.


As the mixture exits the extruder, it is exposed to a sudden drop in pressure and/or a blast of hot air. This causes the food particles to rapidly expand, creating the puffed texture.

Seasoning and Flavoring

After puffing, the snacks are often sprayed with seasonings or flavorings to enhance their taste.


Finally, the puffed foods are packaged in airtight containers to maintain their freshness and texture.
