Washington State University and Culinex have been kind enough to sponsor a one-day food extrusion class. Dr. Girish Ganjyal, an expert in the field and research scientist at WSU, will lead and lecture an all day class touching on Starch Biopolymers, Extruder Screws & Dies, Ingredients in Extrusion Processing, Physiochemical Characteristics of Ingredients, and Scale up. Lunch will be provided.
Extrusion is a very common processing technology used in the food industry to produce direct expanded snack foods, cereals, and pet foods, among other products. Extruded products are typically made by utilizing raw materials, often flours, and subjecting them to high temperatures while also creating a high shear and high-pressure environment using rotating screws.This introductory course will provide information about the extrusion processing systems, extruder parts, extruder screws and dies, food ingredient functionality and food product development with extrusion. The course will provide practical examples of product development with extrusion using various food ingredients. View the full event agenda here.
This event will provide three (3) continuing education (CE) credits.
