Grits used in the snack manufacturing are obtained from milling pealed and degerminated corn grits by a process of extrusion.

Their main characteristics are low amount of fat and the absence of bran particles. The various products that can be obtained from these grits depend on the characteristics of the extrusion machine as well as the type of snacks required.

That is why it is important to know the specific needs of the client so as to satisfy their demands with the best product.
