Snack Foods


Quality extruded snacks.

Our OPTI-Xtrude is specifically designed for the extrusion of viscous, shear-sensitive corn masa and potato-based snack foods. Optimum product density with maximum oil absorption for higher product quality, taste and yield.

Premium dehydrated beef snacks.

Increased air velocity over the surface of the product results in more uniform processing conditions during the dehydration process. Our innovative design keeps air in the “processing” zone for better performance and better beef snacks such as jerky
