Puffed cereals are now common in food either as finished product for breakfast or bread substitute or raw material in more complex products. The great advantage in using the puffed cereal compared to other ingredients is that light products are obtained, with high fiber contents, easy to digest, with limited calorie count and completely natural without adding any additive.
Sacchi's interest in machines for puffed cereal production began in the late '70s when these cereals appeared for the first time in large-scale retail both for human purpose and pet food. Today Sacchi is a world leader in puffed cereal production plants. Sacchi's SOCORI is a mature industrial product with a lot of different applications and is covered by different patents.
