Puffed lentil cake

A rice cake manufacturer contacted us with the wish to produce a puffed lentil cake. However, lentils do not expand very easily and are therefore not suitable for producing puffed cakes.  

In our pilot plant facilities, we then developed a pellet made from red lentil flour that, under the right conditions, expands and produces a cake. The starch of these red lentil pellets is partially pregelatinized making the puffing much easier. 

LensPEARL are small pellets made of red lentil flour that all contain the same shape and size.

Our customer is now using LensPEARL to produce red lentil cakes with a nice color and great taste.
