Baked not fried

Spooner Industries Ltd News and PR from Spooner Industries Ltd - Published 01 June 2015 The increasing popularity of ‘healthy’ savoury snacks has led to the change of emphasis in production to baking instead of frying.
To help customers take full advantage of this development, a new partnership between manufacturer Spooner Industries and a local specialist R&D facility presents a unique service to the snack food industry. The combined resources provide technology that delivers fresh snack innovation and opportunities to both increase profit margin and provide faster sales growth; plus experienced manufacturing capabilities for bespoke ovens, dryers and coolers for a full snack range including potatoes, tortillas, cereal, granola, cookies, snack cakes and crackers.

With specific process knowledge of extruded baked snack products, the process does not rely on the use of premium grade ingredients, lowering raw ingredient costs. No additives are necessary and the speed of the process maintains nutrients within the finished product, all contributing to a healthier product.

David Emerson and Michael Lomas from Spooner were on hand to discuss this technology at the recent SNAXPO exhibition held in Orlando, Florida. A first time exhibitor at the event, enthusiasm was high on a busy stand where visitors were “amazed” when tasting the products. Retaining the look and the flavour of their fellow fried products, these baked savouries had the added advantage of even looking healthy. Specially prepared for the show, chipsticks were presented each containing a pea that had retained its colour, flavour and appearance – a great visual confirmation for the health fans which, combined with the great taste, proved to be a real winner at SNAXPO.

Visitors comments included:

“It’s wonderful to see a first time exhibitor arrive with something so different. Healthy snacks have long been on the agenda, but concentration has always been on the sweet rather than savoury so this is something really new and innovative.”

Michael Lomas said:

“Spooner has always been about developing new technology, so this collaboration opens up a whole new avenue of enquiries where we can offer snack producers something genuinely unique that will contribute towards their own business success.”
