Extrudates

SANACEL® enhances the quality features of extrudates

Powdered celluloses (E460ii) and dietary fibres from wheat, oat, barley, apple and potato allow a high dietary fibre intake by enriching extruded products with dietary fibres.

SANACEL® regulates the intestinal flora and supports the human digestion. Dietary fibres with soluble parts e.g. from apple, potato and barley fibres additionally have a prebiotic effect. SANACEL® betaG contains the highly effective polysaccharide beta-glucan with health claims. Barley beta glucans can positively influence the blood sugar and cholesterol level.

SANACEL® dietary fibres are not only used for dietary fibre enrichment, they also bring advantages for production, storage and transportation of semi-finished and finished extrudates. The application of SANACEL® fibres for the production of extruded products results in a homogenous pore structure, a smooth surface, reduced breaking and abrasion as well as a crispy and crunchy texture.

Nutritional advantages of SANACEL® dietary fibres in extruded products

  • dietary fibre enrichment and/ or beta-glucan enrichment
  • calorie reduction („light“-products)
  • customized and target-oriented application e.g. oat fibre in gluten free products
  • stating of “Added value” possible by using “Health Claims” of the EFSA

Technological advantages of SANACEL® dietary fibres in extruded products:

  • improved moisture binding within the extrudate
  • facilitates the homogenisation of fat-containing and hygroscopic products
  • equal pores
  • increased breaking stability
  • extrudate remains longer crispy e.g. if milk is added
  • aroma-intensification by SANACEL® betaG or SANACEL® AF 401
  • steady and easy dosing with screw conveyor

Depending on the kind and target of the application SANACEL® dietary fibre concentrates with a fibre length between 35 – 80 µm are used.
