Spices, Herbs, Dry Fruits and other vegetable substances bring aroma and flavor to your food. During the long journey from the farms to your table, spices and herbs become contaminated with bacteria and molds. Bacterial contamination may come from several sources-insects, birds, soil, water etc. Fungal growth may occur during drying, storage or shipping. People all over the world are now more conscious about microbial contamination along with impurities and foreign matter in food products. Rejection of imports due to substandard quality of the food also tarnishes the image of the importer. The AURACLAVE uses dry, superheated steam along with effective post treatment drying for sterilization or heat treatment of a wide range of organic or herbal products either in whole, broken, or powdered form.
