Twin-screw extruders can impart a higher number of possible configurations to the final product, to attain a different shape and has wider adaptability to snack ingredients. The operational efficiency is much higher in the twin-screw extruders than in the single-screw extruders. Thus, more manufacturers are shifting from using single-screw extruders to twin-screw extruders.
