From sample preparation to food extrusion, you will find suitable solutions for the entire manufacturing process. 


Gluten-free products: Trend & Tradition  

The global market for gluten-free foods is growing continuously: consumers are increasingly opting for a gluten-free diet either voluntarily or for reasons of intolerance (e.g. celiac disease).

Staple foods in many regions of the world are produced from gluten-free raw materials.

In Asia, Latin America and Africa, gluten-free materials such as rice, corn, millet, quinoa and amaranth traditionally play a central role.

Gluten free flour or the starch of the aforementioned and other raw materials form the basis of the corresponding finished products.

Mastering the rheological problems of gluten-free materials

Without the unique structure-forming properties of gluten, most doughs are highly plastic or visco-elastic as a result. They behave differently to doughs containing gluten during dough production and baking.

The laboratory equipment presented here has been specifically optimized to meet the rheological challenges of gluten-free flours, starches and plastic doughs.

For whom are devices of this product category suitable?

  • Industries processing the following raw materials, for example:

    - Cereals (rice, corn, etc.)
    - Pseudocereals (millet, quinoa, amaranth, etc.)
    - Pasta
    - Hemp
    - Legumes
    - Snacks
    - Coconut

  • Industries producing the following gluten-free products:

    - Snacks
    - Pasta
    - Gluten-free bakery products
  • Institutes/universities in the field of Research & Development
