This co-extrusion technology is a response to market pressures that requires a steady stream of convenient, tasty and attention-grabbing new products to stimulate interest and satisfy consumer expectations.
Co-extrusion systems provide a capability to make added-value products with out of the ordinary shapes that catch the eye, complemented by exotic flavours and fillings. The fillings can be of virtually any colour or flavour - sweet or savoury creams, fruit pastes or chocolate pralines are typical. Even more appeal can be added with glazings, frostings or coatings such as chocolate.
They also provide the means of incorporating fillings with contrasting textures or colours into a cereal outer. The essential elements are a die, pillow crimper and cream feed system.Co-extruded cereal products can be positioned as pet or infant foods as well as mainstream snacks or cereal products.
