10 Recipe Preparation Grind ingredients to proper particle size Weigh individual ingredientsParticle size and density of each ingredient should be similarPremix by hand the micro-ingredients (anything less than 1% of total recipe) and add a carrier (part of a major ingredient) if necessary to bring premix size up to 3% of total recipeAdd major ingredients, then premix (from #4) to mixer and mix 3-5 minutes. Add any liquids slowly and then mix another 3-5 minutesFinal grind, if requiredUse sifter and/or magnet to detect and remove foreign material

28 Rice as a Starch SourceSmall, tightly packed starch granules that hydrate slowlyBecomes sticky when it gelatinizesChoose long grain varieties over medium and short grain varieties as they are much less sticky when cookedRice is very digestible even when cook values are lowRice bran may contain up to 40% starch
29 Corn as a Starch Source Good expansion Excellent binding Sticky at high levels (>40%)
30 Wheat as a Starch Source Good bindingGood expansionCan be sticky if overcookedContains gluten (good binder)Most widely available starch sourceOften utilized as wheat flour which has most of the bran removed
31 Tubers as a Starch Source (Potato & Cassava) Excellent binding (at 5% levels)Requires less total starch in dietGood expansionOften precookedSmooth pellet surfaceIncreased cost

40 Vitamin & Pigment Retention Vitamin/Pigment Retention Depends On:Raw material formulationTemperatureMoisturesRetention timesAn average of 10 to 15 percent of vitamins and pigments are lost during extrusion. Compensation is made by overages. Heat stable forms are preferred.
