100kg Pandan Leaves = 10kg Pandan Powder
Natural Green Colouring
This is the process of FREEZE DRYING (not dehydrated nor sun dried etc and than pounded like crazy) “The biggest challenge of conventional freeze drying functional super foods and nutraceuticals is the high cost of machinery, operational costs, huge energy usage and small quantities produced. These factors combine to make conventional freeze drying slow and expensive.
The machine is complicated and took years to develop, but the concepts are simple and easy to understand. In conventional freeze drying the product is laid out on trays and the trays are placed on racks inside the product chamber. The exposed surface area (the drying surface) is limited, and only a small quantity of raw material can be processed.
In our process the product is not sitting motionless on trays, but is flying around inside the product chamber in a vortex. This dramatically increases the exposed surface area which, in turn, increases the rate of heat exchange allowing larger quantities to be dried faster”- in this machine up to 36 hours – only fresh produce goes in and dried powder comes out.
Soluble or dissolvable
The soluble Pandan Powder is processed through SPRAYED DRYING (not dehydrated nor sun dried etc and than pounded like crazy). Spray drying is a method of producing a dry powder from a liquid or slurry by rapidly drying with a hot gas.
In short, the soluble powder powder is made from pandan juice itself, thus the powder is soluble with no residual. Perfect for seri muka etc.
