Our project roasting ,sanitizing and packaging peanuts

Project Process

1-Roasting Peanuts

To be roasted in the shell, peanuts are cooked at medium heat. They may be plain roasted peanuts or seasoned roasted-in-the-shell. The most popular are salted in-the-shell, however the new flavors – cajun and jalapeno are getting accolades from consumers as well. To season peanuts in the shell – prior to roasting- the peanuts are washed and then the seasonings, which are dissolved in water, are forced through the shells by a pressure process. When dried during roasting, the seasonings remain inside the shells. Most often, snack peanuts are shelled, roasted, blanched and salted, (although Spanish peanuts are usually roasted with their skins on.).

2-Cleaning The Peanuts

After a good roasting it is time to sanitise and remove any remaining shells from peanuts . the vertical rotation movement helps the shells to be easily removed . With the gravity and rotation the peanuts are clean and ready for packaging .

3-Packaging Peanuts

The package will be aluminium or plastic container of 170 grams . The design will be chosen by the client , or he can pick of our models that we designed and we are inspired from.


Overview Of The Project (video)

Future vision

Roasted peanuts can also be a good ingredient for future purposes . Especially for peanut butter .Since the massive demand of peanut butter these days . Especially in 2020 .In fact, According to a new report by Expert Market Research, global peanut butter market reached sales worth US$ 3.71 Billion in 2020 and is further expected to reach revenues worth US$ 5.30 Billion by 2026.
