The PTO Polenta Processing Line

Polenta is a cornmeal-based RTE (ready-to-eat) product that originated in Italy but has been similarly formulated in Latin America as tamales and in Africa as various types of pap. It serves as a staple food for millions globally, with each culture preparing it uniquely. Leveraging our experience in soy processing plants where we produce soy milk, derived from Okara (the semi-solid residue from soy milk factories often underutilized and relegated to animal feed due to its high water content), we have developed a patent-pending process. This process fully utilizes Okara in a blend with simple cornmeal. By adding a special pre-mix of vitamins and minerals during processing, we can customize the final nutritional profile to specific requirements based on age, gender, malnutrition status, and cultural preferences.

Our product, PTO (Polenta Tamal Okra), undergoes thermal processing for shelf stability at room temperature and can be further retorted in autoclaves for an extended shelf life. We are prepared to conduct feasibility studies for complete production lines ranging from 300 to 5000 Kg per hour. This project may incorporate a soy milk processing line or stand alone using soy meal instead of Okara. We invite you to watch the video and share your needs for further collaboration.
