Petfood professionals interested in learning about the latest extrusion processing technologies met at Kansas State University in August to participate in the Extrusion Processing: Technology and Commercialization short course.
The course, hosted by the University's International Grains Program, was attended by 36 professionals from seven countries who came to Sabetha, Kansas, USA, to study the latest ingredients, technologies and applications. Attendees also learned about sensory aspects of extruded products and studied business plans for product development.
The course will be offered again in August 2012.
