Snack Pellets Market Highlights:
Snack Pellets are unfinished products that are processed by manufactures into an expandable snack using extrusion process. These pellets are then available in various forms, shape, and textures. Subsequently, these pellets are sold to food processors to process them into ready-to-eat snacks. This processing usually is done by two methods, namely hot air expansion and hot oil frying. The most accepted and healthiest method in the processing of snack pellets is the hot air expansion, since it avoids usage of excess oil and formation of acryl amide, which causes toxic effects, such as drowsiness, hallucinations, and distal numbness.

Among these, potato-based snack pellets is dominating the market for snack pellets owing to the palatable taste of natural potato starch.
