The device comprises a forming chamber (12) for forming the food mass, a conveyor belt (32) for conveying of the portioned food mass, a cutting device for portioning the food mass introduced into the forming chamber, and a supply device for supplying water in the forming chamber and/or in the cutting device. The food mass is supplyable and guidable in and through the forming chamber. The cutting device comprises a movable cutting body. The cutting body and the forming chamber are adjustable and fixable to each other. The forming chamber has a longitudinal axis. The device comprises a forming chamber (12) for forming the food mass, a conveyor belt (32) for conveying of the portioned food mass, a cutting device for portioning the food mass introduced into the forming chamber, and a supply device for supplying water in the forming chamber and/or in the cutting device. The food mass is supplyable and guidable in and through the forming chamber. The cutting device comprises a movable cutting body. The cutting body and the forming chamber are adjustable and fixable to each other. The forming chamber has a longitudinal axis and the cutting body is movable in a moving direction. The longitudinal axis and the moving direction are adjustable to each other. The cutting body is formed as one or multi wing cutting knife (18) rotatable to a rotation axis and the rotation axis and the longitudinal axis are adjustable parallel to each other. The cutting knife is arranged in a bearing casing. The rotation axis is adjustable within the bearing casing and/or the bearing casing is adjustable with respect to the longitudinal axis of the forming chamber. The forming chamber is mounted at a fixture. The forming chamber is adjustable in or on the fixture or the fixture is adjustable with respect to the rotation axis of the cutting knife. The conveyor belt and the forming chamber are adjustable to each other. The moving direction of the cutting knife is selectable so that the portioning of the food mass is carried out with a movement of the cutting knife directed against the effective direction. The forming chamber comprises a wall section (14) for limiting the forming chamber with a column (16) for introducing the cutting knife in the forming chamber, a suction opening for releasing portion of the food mass formed through the introduction of the cutting body into the forming chamber, and a forming chamber section for supporting the portion of the food mass limited by the column and the suction opening. The forming chamber section and/or the cutting body are dimensioned in such a way that the portions are released by the movement of the cutting body through the suction opening. The cutting knife comprises a one-sided connection. The portioning device further comprises a filling machine for supplying and guiding the food mass in and through the forming chamber, arranged upstream in the conveying direction of the food mass, and a conveyor means for receiving and conveying the portions of the food mass, arranged downstream in the conveying direction of the food mass. An independent claim is included for a method for the portioning paste-like food mass such as sausage meat, dough or like.
