Production & Sourcing
Drying Peppers: Sweet peppers are harvested and cleaned. They are then dried using methods like sun drying or low-temperature drying. This reduces their moisture content and prepares them for the steam treatment process.
Steaming: The dried sweet peppers are exposed to steam in a controlled environment. The steam helps soften the peppers and eliminates any potential contaminants or pathogens.
Second Drying: After the steaming process, the peppers are dried again to reduce their moisture content to a suitable level for grinding.
Grinding: The dried and steamed peppers are ground into a fine powder using grinding equipment. This creates the characteristic texture of steam-treated ground paprika powder.
