Rice is a widely consumed staple food in China and other parts of the world. However, during the rice processing, most of the nutrients are lost. The need for fortified rice has been emphasized for many years, especially in poor and remote areas where people suffer from serious nutritional problems.
Jinan Arrow Machinery Co., Ltd. offers a solution to this problem by adopting the twin-screw extrusion process to produce nutrient-fortified rice with crushed rice as raw material. The production process includes crushing, mixing, quenching and tempering, extrusion molding, drying, screening, and mixing or packaging.
There are several advantages of using the twin-screw extrusion process. First, using crushed rice as raw material reduces production costs. Second, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other nutrients can be added during the mixing process to increase nutritional value. Third, the high temperature time of the extrusion process is short, which almost does not destroy the nutritional components in the food. Moreover, the extrusion process changes the structure and properties inside the molecule, making it more convenient for the human body to absorb. Fourth, other coarse grains such as corn, sorghum, oats, buckwheat, barley, mung beans, and red beans can be added to improve the single food structure. Finally, Jinan Arrow Machinery Co., Ltd. offers both LT and FT series twin screws with flexible drying schemes to adapt to different customer needs for output and standards.
Overall, nutrient-fortified rice produced by the twin-screw extrusion process has a huge market demand and can help to solve the problem of malnutrition and chronic diseases caused by trace element deficiencies.
