Extrusion is a technique that combines several operations such as cooking, mixing, kneading, shaping, shearing and forming. It is a procedure by which several assorted ingredients are forced through an opening in a holed die or plate with a pattern explicit to the food. Then it is cut to an indicated size with the help of blades. It is a popular means of preparing healthy snacks and ready-to-eat foods. Extrusion enables large food production through an endless, well-organized system that ensures homogeneity in the finished product. The starch level of food products made with this approach is often relatively high.
