How much salt is taken up in a snack pellet from RoastR?

4 Jun 2019

In RoastR we process snack pellets in granulated salt and thus you might worry of salt uptake in the product.The expected salt uptake in a RoastR product, when producing snack pellets made of fresh vegetables, is not more than 0,1-0,4 %. 

The average salt level in a raw snack pellet, is approx. 1% and with a balanced seasoning there is no risk of exceeding a satisfactory salt level in the finished product.  The granulated salt won´t break down and therefore you only need to change the salt afterevery 80 hours of operation or as we recommend – once every week.
