Embalance® – The Next Potato Generation

As a leading manufacturer of potato flakes and granules, Emsland Group is stepping up its production in Cloppenburg, Germany, this summer, by becoming the biggest flakes factory worldwide. Emsland Group is also starting a new flake factory at its head office in Emlichheim which will eventually produce 15.000 mt of potato flakes. Emsland Group has a strong focus on growth in the snack industry. Due to local contract farming, it is are able to grow the potatoes variety- and sugar specific.

Emsland Group’s latest innovation in the field of dried food products, so-called dehydrates, is the Embalance® range. These special potato flakes use a newly-developed and patented physical production process without the use of additives. The products are low in undesirable by-products such as sugar, asparagine and glykoalkaloids.

Initial application and production tests in the snack industry have confirmed that it is possible to control the expansion behavior and the sugar and asparagine content in extruded food products using potato-based Embalance® products. This enables the production of largely acrylamide-reduced and thus healthier foodstuffs. Besides this, Emsland Group has vast experience with acrylamide reduction and several solutions for this topic.

Alongside the production of potato-based “health and clean label products”, this newly developed process has also been used successfully for the production of dehydrated peas resulting in low-sugar and low-fat pea flakes which are additionally rich in dietary fiber.
