Process of manufacture of the vegetables powder
We are showing a process of manufacture of the vegetables powder below.
We use all vegetables from West Japan for raw materials of the fine powder.
Therefore, we can offer safe powder to the customer. A photograph is an Angelica keiskei field in Yamaguchi-shi. The vegetables which they are brought up carefully in this way, and were harvested become the fine powder.
The vegetables have been sent to the Yamaguchi factory from the estate.
We wash off the mud which attached to root crops neatly. We completely remove the damaged part of raw vegetables and the insect which attached.
We wash vegetables in water continually while making bubbling in a water tank type alien substance removal device. We in this way completely remove garbage attaching to vegetables.
We cut it to size suitable for dry processing using a slicer.
Step6: Sterilization and Primary dry processing
We work to sterilize vegetable chips with superheated steam sterilization dryer. We developed these facilities in collaborative investigation with Professor Miyatake of Osaka Prefecture University.
Step7: Second dry processing
We dry vegetable chips with a hot-air drier again. And we do below the component water rate 8%.
We pulverize dry vegetables with a current of air-type crusher.
Vegetables particle clashes by a current of air and becomes particular to approximately 10 microns.
※ 10 microns is size same as a one-100th millimeter. It is the texture that melts when you put a particle of 10 microns on the tongue. In addition, the temperature of the vegetables particle does not rise because we crush vegetables by a current of air. Therefore, we can pulverize vegetables without breaking a nutrient to contain.
We inspect the general number of living bacteria and perform the inspection of the particle diameter.
Step10: Sorting and Packing
We fill an aluminum bag while measuring completed powder. A heat seals an aluminum bag immediately after this and completely seals it up and prints the expiration date in an aluminum bag.
Step11: Inspection of the alien substance
We confirm that there is not the mixture of the alien substance with an X-ray check machine and a metal detection machine for exclusive use of the aluminum bag.
We send reliable safe vegetables powder to a customer in this way.
