The difference between French fries and potato chips production plant process
In addition to the different shapes in the production process of french fries and potato chips, there are still some differences. First, the cutting shape and thickness of potato chips and french fries are different, this results in different frying times for French fries and potato chips, the frying time for fries is relatively shorter. Some people may find it incredible. Although French fries are thicker than potato chips, most of them are lightly fried, frozen, and then packaged and sold. Potato chips are sold directly as finished products.

How long do potatoes need to be cleaned？
For potato cleaning time, there are two situations. First, if fresh potatoes are used for production, the cleaning time is generally 1-2 minutes. However, if you are using stock potatoes, the cleaning time will be longer, generally 5-6 minutes.
What is the thickness of the potato slices cut by the slicer?
The machine can cut potato chips between 2-9mm, but the thickness of potato chips in the potato production process is generally between 1-2mm. If the cut is too thin, it will cause the potato to be fragile during the frying process. If it is too thick, It will affect the taste, so the thickne
ss of potato slices is very important. In addition, the slices of potato chips need to be uniform, so that the heat can be better controlled during the frying stage.
Why blanch potatoes in potato chips production plant
Since potatoes are vegetables with a relatively high starch content, blanching can remove the starch on the surface of the potatoes, making the potato chips more crispy when they are fried, and avoiding too much starch which may cause the potato chips to be too soft. During the blanching process of potato chips, the machine needs to be preheated for 15-20 minutes at a temperature of 80℃-100℃, but the blanching time should not be too long, and the general time can be 1 minute.
