Extrusion is referred to as a thermo-mechanical refinement process that allows raw materials, such as proteins or grains to be pressed through a pre-defined opening by using temperature and pressure. Numerous product developments, including novelties in vegan and vegetarian ranges would not even have been possible without this process.

Extruded cereals are specially cooked to make them easy to digest. These are also water-based or fat-based fillings put in direct-expanded cereal envelopes.

The demand for extruded cereals is likely to surge at a rapid pace in the upcoming years because of their inclusion of zinc, carbohydrates, magnesium, copper, B group vitamins, proteins, and iron. These are of small sizes and require innovative cutting systems to change or control the texture from soft to crunchy.

The ongoing expansion of retail infrastructures, especially in developing countries and the surging demand for clean label food products are some of the other factors that are set to drive the market. In addition, the increasing adoption of western culture is projected to change an individual’s dietary pattern, thereby propelling the market.
