Each production phases is subjected to rigorous product and analytical (chemical and microbiological) checks.
OUR 4 MAIN
Existing technologies combined with respect for relevant regulations and voluntary international protocols allow us to obtain the highest quality products with high food safety standards.
The shelling process involves four main steps:
1. STONE REMOVAL
Impurities are removed through adjustable speed airflows.
Fruits are separated according to size by cylindrical sieves.
Shell is removed through roller system which protect the kernel inside.
Optical sorters allow foreign bodies (shells, vegetable materials, etc.) and seeds with defects and/or insect damage to be eliminated.
The chopping process involves two main steps:
The fruit is cut through a cold system with adjustable rotating rollers.
The sieves calibrate the product according to customer requirements.
The peeling process involves five main steps:
Fruits are placed in special tanks containing water at a temperature of approximately 90 degrees.
The kernel is separated from the endocarp through specific rollers that exercise a cushioned friction on the product.
The product is dried by means of an adjustable-flow hot-air system to obtain the desired humidity.
A cooler tunnel allows the product to be brought back to an optimal temperature.
5. SEPARATION IN COLORS
Fruits are separated by colour gradation using optical sorting machines.
The production of paste involves five main steps:
The fruit is roasted through roasters with the capacity to vary in time, temperature and product quantity.
A coolet tunnel allows the product to be brought back to an optimal temperature for the sub-sequent processing.
3. PRE- MILLING
Controlled temperature mills allow an initial grinding of the product.
Sphere refiners allow to be obtain a finished product with different level of refinement .
The product is sieved to the customer's desired grain size.
