Snack pellets are semi-finished non-expanded food products, such as chips and puffs. They are commonly used in savory food products and are manufactured using cereals, vegetable powders, potatoes and grains, including wheat, rice, corn and tapioca. They are traditionally produced by mixing the raw materials to a dry dough state, extruding the dough through a die, drying the pieces to form hard pellets and mixed with seasonings before final packaging. The pellets are further fried, roasted, air-popped or baked and mixed with flavor enhancers to produce finished and expanded ready-to-eat (RTE) snacks. Snack pellets are available in a wide variety of colors, flavors and textures and in the form of laminated, tridimensional, die-face and gelatinized cuts, slices and 3D shapes. They have a long shelf life, high stability and bulk density and can be conveniently stored and transported.
Snack Pellet Market Trends:
Significant growth in the food and beverage industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the increasing demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) food products due to changing lifestyles and hectic schedules is providing a thrust to the market growth. Product manufacturers are widely using gelatinized snack pellets, which can be produced in uniform thickness and consistency using specialized high-speed rotary cutting machines. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of nutrient-rich multigrain snack pellets, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. In comparison to the wheat- and corn-based pellets, these variants have a low-fat content and are rich in fiber and various micro and micronutrients. With the rising health consciousness among the masses, there is also an increasing demand for RTE snacks manufactured using natural and organically sourced ingredients. Other factors, including the development of snack pellets in attractive 3D shapes, along with the increasing product demand from the restaurants, hotels, quick serving restaurants (QSRs) and cafes, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
