State of the art cereals processing

Belourthe’s high-quality cereals are produced in a state of the art manufacturing complex, including rapid mixing and drying equipment and fully automated packaging. Consumer safety and full compliance with the European norms are our priorities.

The following is a summary of the main industrial processes handled in our plant.

  • hydrolysis

    Hydrolysis makes the cereals more digestible and sweeter

    Belourthe is one of the only independent factories in the world with the capability of delivering production-scale hydrolyzed cereals. This process enables to optimize the organoleptical qualities of the product, facilitates the digestion and adds natural sweetness (obtaining sweet cereals without addition of sugar).
