Breading for poultry, fish and vegetable snacks is big business, but for processors to make an impact on the market, consistency in the quality of the breading is equally as critical as the meat, fish or vegetable contained within. JBT’s full range of coating and frying solutions are designed with quality, capacity, reliability and repeatability with superior efficiency in mind.
A quality product results when the same batter/breading consistency is applied to products time and time again. The flexibility of JBT products allows for adjustments based on the product type or recipe requirements, according to Bob Stacy, JBT Divisional Product Manager for Coating and Frying.
Stacy singles out three JBT products as standouts:
The Stein ProMix Automatic Batter Mixer; the Stein Heritage Breader – Super Duty; and the Stein TFF-IV THERMoFIN Fryer. All three solutions were designed to deliver quality, capacity, reliability and repeatability.
A fully automatic continuous mixer, the ProMix is the first step toward delivering a quality product. The ProMix is designed to maintain adjustable batter mix ratios and offers consistency in cooling and viscosity control.
The Heritage Breader – Super Duty is easily adjustable for multiple product applications with ease of adjustments and settings for repeatability resulting in product consistency and quality.
The TFF-IV THERMoFIN Fryer, boasts high efficiency, offers a new option for PLC control and repeatability. “The TFF-IV is a high thermal efficiency cool-heat fryer, which, is between 30-40% more efficient than a gas or electric fryer,” says Stacy.
JBT coating and frying solutions are typically used by customers in the poultry and processed food industries, in the latter case for frying and coating a wide variety of vegetable-based appetizers, including onion rings, cheese sticks, mushrooms, cauliflower and veggie patties.
