Production & Sourcing
Cleaning: The process begins with cleaning the raw red lentils to remove any impurities such as dirt, stones, or debris. This is typically done using mechanical separators and air currents to ensure that only clean lentils proceed to the next step.
Dehusking: After cleaning, the outer seed coat of the lentils is removed through a dehusking process. This can involve using mechanical abrasion or friction methods to gently rub off the outer layer while leaving the inner lentil intact.
Splitting: Once the lentils are dehusked, they are split into two halves along their natural seam. This is usually done using specialized machines that apply gentle pressure or cutting blades to create the split effect.
Sifting and Grading: The split red lentils are then sifted to separate any remaining husk fragments or small particles. They are also graded based on size and quality to ensure uniformity in the final product.
