GRSC 620 - Extrusion Processing in the Food and Feed Industries
The course is designed to provide the student with an understanding of extrusion technology and the ability to apply it to product development and production through a “hands-on” approach. Major emphasis is on laboratory exercises in which students will operate pilot scale extrusion equipment to produce readily-recognizable commercial products such as cheese curls, breakfast cereals, pasta, pet food, etc. Emphasis will also be placed on process and product development, analysis, and problem solving techniques.
Note: Three hours lecture plus one three hour lab a week.
