Manufacturing of Licorice

What is the content of this course?
The main point of this course with practical demonstration on a cooking extruder is the introduction to the industrial manufacturing of licorice products. This product range requires very special know-how and experience in raw materials and process technology ensuring the desired distinctive textures and eating characteristics of the products. The participants will get an introduction to the manufacturing technology of extruded and co-extruded licorice and of licorice all-sorts.
The aim of the practical course is
...  to provide the participants with basic information on raw materials and their influence on texture and taste of the end product.
...  to give an overview of manufacturing processes of various licorice products.

Who should attend this course?

The course is especially for product development and  application technology people, which like to gain more understanding for the industrial processes involved. But it is also an opportunity for people, who have just started in the licorice industry as well as for those, who are already working there to refresh or extend their knowledge.
