HOW IS PUFFED RICE MADE?
“Puffing” is the process of heating rice in a closed tube for a short time, thereby pressurising it with steam. The steam escapes by quickly opening an outlet valve. The sudden drop in pressure causes the water trapped in the rice grain to evaporate and inflate the rice grain. And in the process, the rice grain can take on a volume that is up to 12 times larger.
