Extrusion processing course in India

A short course titled, "Extrusion Processing: Product Development and Commercialization," will be held March 21-24 in Hyderabad, India.

The agenda of the short course has been designed by experts from the Department of Grain Science and Industry at Kansas State University, U.S., Wenger Manufacturing, Acharya N.G. Ranga University, United Soybean Export Council (formerly American Soybean Association), A.P. Foods and other India-based industries and institutions.

The course is an extension to the previously conducted short courses on extrusion technology. The main focus is new product development and financial aspects of setting up an extrusion-based business. In order to bring first-time participants up to date with extrusion technology, introductory topics including extrusion and dryer hardware will be covered on the first day. The programme for the first day will also provide a thorough review for participants who have attended previous short courses on extrusion, but registration for the same is optional for these participants.

The remainder of the short course will cover in-depth a variety of extrusion products ranging from snacks and breakfast cereal to pet food and aquatic feed. Recipes for each kind of product will also be shared with participants. A substantial portion of this short course will also be devoted to capital costs, financing, government regulations, and food safety and sanitation issues. Participants will also be provided a '"hands-on" demonstration of the capabilities of extrusion technology in a modern, commercial-scale extrusion-based snack processing facility.
