String cheese, one of the new fashion snack around the world, has been chosen as 10 Healthy Snacks To Eat At Your Desk by Forbes Magazine because it is high in protein and it offers a bit of fat and has only 80 calories.
String cheese is also a very popular daily snack for children, therefore a perfect peelability is highly requested since kids see it not only as food but also as an object to play with during eating.
According to the increase request of the string cheese production in the dairy market, MilkyLAB offers different solutions in order to respond to all demands. With MilkyLAB lines you can produce not only “traditional string cheese” from milk and curd, but also “analogue string cheese” by using powder ingredients like rennet casein or modified starch.
MilkyLAB automatic line for the production of string cheese consists of:
- Steam cooker-stretcher
- Automatic moulding machine with special extruding system
- Cooling system
- Automatic cutting system
With such a line our clients can produce string cheese with fixed diameter and adjustable length. Thanks to its innovative characteristics, the automatic string cheese line reduces manual working by achieving energy and costs savings as well as high yields of production in less time.
MilkyLAB manufactures its cookerstretcher with an exclusive steam technology characterised by direct steam injection or by steam injection in the double jacket at 4 bars, thanks to the double walls made in stainless steel AISI 316. Respect to the classic mixing systems, our cooker-stretcher has N. 2 bi-directional augers activated byN. 2 independent motor reducers. These augers guarantee the perfect structure for the product.
The special extruding system allows to obtain separated parallel cords of cheese. Thanks to this special extruding system the structure of the product will have a perfect shape and predetermined weight, meanwhile the peelability and consistent texture will be guaranteed.
The cooling system is composed by independent transportation channels for each string cheese. While the string cheese goes forward, the nozzles will spray cold/brine water on it. The water temperature will be controlled by plate heat exchanger.
The automatic cutting system has independent blades, one blade for each cord of cheese. The whole production line completely arranged with cover and spraying balls for automatic CIP cleaning in order to guarantee the perfect sanitation.
