Apparatus (10) and methods are disclosed where plastic extrudable food product is provided such as by an extruder or pump and is combined with another food product without intermixing to form a complexly patterned food product, such as by a pattern forming die (20). The cross-sectional area of the patterned food product is reduced from an inlet end (34) to an outlet end (36) by a factor of 4:1 to as much as 50:1 at an average convergence angle of 5 to 65.degree. while maintaining the cross-sectional pattern to form a reduced cross-sectional patterned foo...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. A method for preparing a food product having at least two colors exhibiting improved detail resolution; comprising the steps of:A. providing a first plastic extrudable food mass having a first color;B. providing at least a second flowable food material having a second color differing from the first color in color or hue;C. combining the first food mass and the second food material without intermixing to form a complexly patterned food mass having an initial cross sectional area;D. reducing the cross sectional area of the com...
