5.0 Technical Aspects
5.1 Location
The plant can be located at any suitable place keeping in view the marketing convenience, availability of power, water and skilled manpower.
5.2 Process of Manufacture
The noodle is manufactured in different sizes, hollow as well as solid and cooked in different methods. Some are made for cooking and others are for frying. The manufacturing method for frying quality noodles is as follows: The average moisture content of dry mixes is 10-11%. The three ingredients, viz. maida, starch and sodium bicarbonate are dry blended in a vertical mixer along with edible colour. Dough is made from the above blend by using boiled water wherein a part of the starch is gelatinized. The ingredients are mixed in dough mixer for about 12 to 15 minutes. The kneaded dough is transferred to a noodle making machine herein extruded material of desired shape and length is obtained by using an appropriate die and suitably adjusting the distance between the dye surface and cutting blade. The moisture content of the product at this stage is about 33%. The cut noodles from the cutting machine fall on wooden trays. The product undergoes surface drying and becomes hard enough to be handled without sticking or being crushed. The moisture content of the pre-dried product at this stage is about 30%. The pre dried product is finally semi-dried. The moisture content of the product is around 17%. The product is exposed to steam for 15 minutes and subsequently dried to 10% moisture level.
6.0 Pollution Control
