Nuts are commonly roasted to enhance their flavor, fragrance, and crunchiness. Cooking with dry heat, such as roasting, ensures that the food is cooked uniformly on all sides. Except for pistachios, which are frequently roasted in their shells, most nuts are roasted without their shells. Raw nuts, on the other hand, have not been roasted. To separate the shells from the kernels of nuts, roasting procedures are occasionally used. The structure and chemical composition of nuts change when they are roasted. It specifically alters their color and reduces their moisture content, resulting in a crunchy feel. The fat, carbohydrate, and protein content of raw and dry-roasted nuts are quite similar. Roasted nuts have slightly more fat and calories per gram than raw nuts, but the difference is negligible.
Latini-Hohberger manufactures specialized machines for the purpose of Nuts Roasting. Latini offers dedicated equipment that takes care of all your nut roasting needs. With the Duct-O-Guard we aim to eliminate the multitude of issues faced during the coating process. Our compliance with the EHS Regulations- concerning issues related to:
Diverting flames and flumes to the chimney instead of being directed towards the production area.
Helps in maintaining a cleaner production environment
Gas burners are placed below the pan and provide direct flame heat to the pan. Flames make direct contact with the pan and inside the guard preventing burn injuries to the machine operator. Provides a contained environment and acts as a safety guard against the chances of workplace injuries.
The Latini Duct-O-Guard is an exemplary piece of equipment that does the job of nut roasting perfectly. Latini’s new breakthrough innovation to the confectionery industry is the Duct-O-Guard which was required in the confectionery industry for a long time. The snacks industry that includes a dedicated audience of roasted nuts and seeds industry is rapidly expanding, thanks to its applications in products such as cereal bars, trail mixes, etc., and Duct-O-Guard is specially designed for manufacturers that use the Hot Panning and Roasting process for these products.
Many manufacturers these days use gas burners to provide high heat to their revolving pans which carry substantial risk to the operators working in the production environment. High burning temperatures, high content of harmful gases produced by direct contact gas burners pose a serious health risk to machine operators, and overseeing this concern, Latini has developed the Duct-O-Guard, keeping in mind the Operator Safety and the practicability to the product being processed and to the working environment. Duct-O-Guard, as the name suggests acts both as a guard for the pan and a duct for the harmful gases around the pan which keeps the direct flame of the burner exposed only to the pan surface and exhausts the gases out through the duct. In the confectionery industry, products such as honey roasted nuts, glazed pecans, and many other products are manufactured using revolving pans with openly exposed gas burners and Latini aims to eliminate the risk involved in the production process for such products, therefore making it the best equipment for the purpose of nut roasting and other similar applications. Latini being the only manufacturer in the industry manufacturing Traditional pans, Automatic Coating Pans, Chocolate, and Gummy Belt coaters - we embraced the opportunity to bring something new to the table. Prospecting the need of the confectionery industry, we wanted a solution that can revolutionize the panning industry which is mostly concentrated in the North American market. We were able to observe the concerns of the customers using traditional roasting pans (Used for nuts roasting) which were not efficient and safe to use and developed Duct-O-Guard which is more hygienic, safe, and efficient and solves the problems of the manufacturers in the panning segment.
With advances in the world, Latini Hohberger Dhimantec has always been at the forefront of introducing adaptable solutions that are uncomplicated and yet efficient. Our offerings in healthy roasted confections and snacks such as honey roasted nuts, glazed pecans, and many other products are similar to this approach. We understand that the need for automated instruments is incomparable, and hence we embarked on the journey of developing the most efficient, and innovative Nuts Roasting Machine. Innovating and developing a process that has been traditionally produced manually.
The Latini Duct-O-Guard is an excellent piece of equipment that roasts nuts perfectly. The Duct-O-Guard, which has been needed for a long time in the candy industry, is Latini's new big step forward in the candy industry. The roasted nuts and seeds industry is growing quickly because it is used in products like cereal bars, trail mixes, etc. The Duct-O-Guard is made especially for manufacturers that use the Hot Panning and Roasting method to make these products.
Gas burners are used by many manufacturers today to heat pans that are rotating at high temperatures, which puts the operators working in the production environment at great risk. High burning temperatures and high levels of harmful gasses from direct-contact gas burners pose a serious health risk to machine operators. Latini created the Duct-O-Guard to address this concern, keeping in mind the safety of the operator, the product being processed, and the working environment. The Duct-O-Guard, as the name suggests, acts as both a guard for the pan and a duct for the harmful gasses around the pan. This keeps the direct flame of the burner from touching the pan and lets the harmful gasses escape through the duct. In the candy industry, honey-roasted nuts, glazed pecans, and many other products are made using revolving pans with open gas burners. Latini aims to eliminate the risk involved in making these products, making them the best equipment for roasting nuts and other similar tasks. Since Latini is the only company in its field that makes traditional pans, automatic coating pans, chocolate belt coaters, and gummy belt coaters, we took the opportunity to bring something new to the table. In order to meet the needs of the candy industry, we wanted to find a way to change the panning industry, which is mostly based in the North American market. We were able to see that customers were worried about the safety and efficiency of traditional roasting pans (used to roast nuts), so we made Duct-O-Guard, which is more hygienic, safe, and efficient and solves the problems of pan manufacturers.
Usually, nuts are roasted to improve their taste, aroma, and crunch. When you prepare with dry heat, like when you roast, the food is cooked evenly on all sides. Most nuts are roasted without their shells, but pistachios are often roasted in their shells. On the other hand, raw nuts have not been roasted. Occasionally, roasting is used to separate the nuts' kernels from their shells. When nuts are roasted, their structure and chemical make-up change. It changes their color and takes away some of their moisture, causing them to feel crunchy. Raw and dry-roasted nuts have about the same amount of fat, carbs, and protein. There isn't much of a difference between raw and roasted nuts in terms of fat and calories per gram.
Latini-Hohberger makes machines that are exceptionally effective for roasting nuts. Latini's nut roasting equipment is specifically designed to handle all of your needs.
During the coating process, there is the potential for a wide variety of concerns to emerge, and the Duct-O-Guard was developed to address these issues. The extent to which we work with the EHS Regulations, in particular with regard to
Instead of being directed toward the production area, flames and smoke are expelled up the chimney.
Maintaining proper hygiene contributes to a clean working environment.
The pan is heated directly with a flame using gas burners that are placed underneath it. The pan and the inside of the guard are both touched by the flames, which prevents the machine operator from getting burned. It gives workers a safe place to work, which makes it less likely that they will get hurt on the job.
As the world changes, Latini Hohberger Dhimantec has always been one of the first to come up with flexible solutions that are easy to use and work well. This is how we help manufacturers make healthy roasted treats and snacks like honey-roasted nuts, glazed pecans, and many of the other products. We know that the need for automated instruments is greater than any other, so we set out to make the best and most innovative Nuts Roasting Machine. Changing and improving a process that has always been done by hand.
