Micropellets for popped chips ingredients & Puffed cakes

Popped chips and puffed snacks are growing in popularity thanks to the increased consumer focus on nutrition and healthy eating. 
While many diners can’t resist a salty snack, they want to choose one that’s low in calories, fats and salt. So, they’re seeking tasty alternatives that are lower in fat and still just as delicious as regular chips, cakes and other treats.
