Heliaflor® Sunflower Extrudates
Heliaflor® Cereals are made from 75% sunflower protein and 25% rice flour. Besides their slightly nutty flavour, they also stand out for their pleasantly light sweetness. This makes Heliaflor® Cereals the perfect ingredient for cereals and snacks.
To produce Heliaflor® Cereals, sunflower protein and rice flour are first mixed with water to form a doughy mass. The paste is heated in an extruder and conveyed through a transport pipe under high pressure. When the heated mass exits the tube, it expands ("pops up") and forms its characteristic shape.
Sunflower Mince®, which is made from 100% sunflower protein, is characterised by its spicy nutty taste. Its shape and structure make it the ideal minced meat substitute in dishes such as bolognese, lasagne or chilli sin carne.
