Production & Sourcing
Air-dried okra powder is made through a process that involves drying fresh okra and grinding it into a fine powder. Here’s how it’s made!
Harvesting: Fresh okra pods are harvested when they are at the appropriate stage of maturity and size.
Cleaning and Preparation: The harvested okra pods are thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt or debris. They are then trimmed and sliced into smaller pieces to facilitate the drying process.
Drying: The sliced okra pieces are laid out in a single layer on trays or racks. The okra is left to dry naturally. The drying process removes the moisture from the okra, gradually dehydrating it.
Grinding: Once the okra slices are fully dried and brittle, they are ground into a fine powder. The grinding process breaks down the dried okra into a consistent particle size, resulting in a smooth and fine powder.
