Extrusion is widely used for pasta and crisps. The food extruders were first used 60 years ago. Moist flour will be rapidly modified, when screws press it through nozzles in high pressure and over 100 C temperature.
Taivalkosken Mylly uses extruders like bioreactors to controllably heat treat cereals. The mill has 3 extruders, fine mills, fractionation and packaging. It has created a line that processes and similarly hygienises cereal flours. The line is protected after heat treatment with special air filters and UV-treatments. The mill can also autoclave and roast cereal kernels. It has access to Nordic cereals and berrries.
The production line of Taivalkosken Mylly is in compliance with the EU-regulation. All unit operations are streamlined and have been tested. We have certified ISO 9001:2008 (FIHSK96008A) quality control system and Ecocert natural for cosmetics. The country of origin of all our products is Finland.
We have a long tradition in subcontracting: R&D, pilot tests, optimisation, tailoring and production.
