Snack products are still one of the most popular food products. Quoting from a report we made earlier which can be seen at the following link: (Snack Industry Growth Trends in Indonesia), in general the snack food industry in Indonesia is predicted to continue to grow. The number of snack food producers in Indonesia makes snack food products more diverse.
The production process of snacks can be done in simple to complex ways. Simple production processes are usually carried out in a traditional way. While the complex production process is carried out using sophisticated technology. To make it easier, we will group this production process into 2, namely traditional and modern.
Traditionally processed snack foods are usually produced from cereals, tubers, nuts, fruits, and other ingredients that are processed in fresh or dried form. These ingredients are then processed by frying, baking, boiling, or a mixture of all three. The final product can usually be seasoned or unseasoned. Examples of these snacks are popcorn, fried peanuts, oven beans, cassava chips, potato chips.

Whereas modernly produced snacks usually use sophisticated technology and are processed in a more hygienic manner. One of the modernly processed snacks is extruded snacks. Extruded snacks are processed using an extruder machine. Snacks produced by this process are very diverse in shape. Differences in ingredient types, formulations, process conditions and mould shapes will result in a very wide diversification of snack types. The characteristics of extruded snacks are light (hollow) and usually flavoured with various flavours, oils, and salt. Extruded snacks currently dominate the market.
Regardless of the production process, the most important thing is the delicious taste of snacks with good quality. Adding seasoning to snacks is one way to add flavour to snacks. However, to maintain the quality so that the seasoning is evenly distributed and create a consistent taste in the snack, we need to know what application methods are right for snack products. Islandsun Indonesia provides a variety of seasonings that can be applied to various snacks.
