Properties and applications of innovative potato and pea flakes

Producing a successful product depends on the right choice of raw materials. For the manufacturer, it is a fine balance between the consumers’ needs, likes, tastes and interests.

As a leading manufacturer of potato flakes and granules, Emsland Group is stepping up its research and development activities more and more in this field. Our latest innovation in the field of dried food products, so-called dehydrates, are special potato flakes. They are produced by a newly-developed physical production process without the use of additives. The products are low in unwanted by-products such as sugar, asparagine and glykoalkaloids.

Alongside the production of potato-based “health and clean label products”, the developed process has already been used successfully for the production of dehydrated peas. So, for the first time, low-sugar and low-fat pea flakes which are rich in dietary fiber and have great potential for a range of other interesting uses, are also available to our customers.

Dr. Karl Ludwig Woll will discuss amongst others initial application and production tests in the snack industry, that have confirmed the possibility to control the expansion behavior and the sugar and asparagine content in extruded food products using Emsland Groups’ potato-based product solutions. This enables the production of largely acrylamide-reduced and thus healthier foodstuffs.
