Production & Sourcing
Cleaning: The process begins with cleaning the raw whole red lentils to remove any dirt, debris, stones, or other impurities.
Dehusking: After cleaning, the outer seed coat of the lentils is removed in a dehusking process.
Sifting and Grading: The football lentils are then sifted to separate any remaining husk fragments or small particles. They are also graded based on size and quality to ensure consistency in the final product.
Drying: Once the football lentils are cleaned, de-husked, sifted, and graded, they may undergo a drying process to reduce their moisture content. Lower moisture levels help prevent spoilage during storage and transportation.
