Food Processing Equipment for Snack Bars & Health Bars

Commercial Snack &
Health Bar Equipment

Snack Bars & Health Bars are perhaps some of the fastest growing segments in the packaged food and snacks categories – and for good reason. They can be a tasty and quick snack, or healthy and nutritious, so active people on the go can simply grab one whenever they feel the urge or the need. Although Snack Bars are usually all about delicious flavors, good prices, and convenience for a younger demographic, Health Bars are typically made from nutrition packed foods such as nuts, raisins, and whole-grains. Health Bars pack a lot of vitamins and minerals into a small and often low calorie delicious product. They usually cost a little more, but they are worth it because of the types of ingredients they use.

Several varieties of Health Bars are made for specific market segments, such as Protein Bars for athletes and bodybuilders; energy bars for runners and bikers; and meal replacement bars for dieters and hikers. These items are usually sold at premium prices and carry higher mark-ups as well.

Production of these bars take highly specialized equipment – often different depending on the specific type of bar intended to produce – but here at Bakery Technology Enterprises, LLC we have plenty of experience designing and creating just what is needed to produce excellent products at good prices, while maximizing profits for manufacturers.

Food Processing Equipment for Snack Bars & Health Bars

If you are already producing, or you want to produce bars for sale, you’ll want to use the proper types of food processing equipment across your line. One important element in quality bar production is proper forming equipment. It’s a common misconception in the industry that some types of non-standard equipment, such as the Vemag (made to produce meat patties), will be “good enough” for producing quality bars.  Sadly, this is not the case. Using a Vemag will cause your product to be hard and over compacted. If you want to secure large contracts with the retail grocery chains, etc. the quality of your bars will have to be much better than what can be produced with a system like that. It’s best to start with a proper customized slabbing system that gives a significantly more tender final product.
