Hot air expansion and hot oil frying are two of the most commonly used methods for the conversion of snack pellets into finished ready-to-eat form. Conversion of snack pellets using hot air is considered to be healthy as it avoids the use of excessive oil and the formation of acryl amide, a common cause for heart diseases and some specific cancers.
