Welcome to our Nopal powder section where we give you our future nopal wholesale customer an overview of our Nopal dehydration process. From start to finish we take great interest and pride in providing the best quality Nopal powder currently available in the international market. How we do this is to continue our commitment to "CARE" - Create with the Ability to Respect Excellence Here below we will show you the stages involved in our Nopal powder. From the fresh Nopal pads that we hand pick to the final stages of Packaging. Please understand that we have to be careful what to show on this open internet page so unfortunately we are not able to show you our complete dehydration technique. Of course our clients do have access to this information and have never doubted that our natural dehydration process lives up to what there quality standards require.
This picture shows a typical Mother pad from our fields with baby Nopalito leaves that are almost ripe for cutting our fresh Nopal product for export. The larger mother pad is what we use for our Nopal powder, we use the mature pads because of the higher nutrient and mineral content. The standard size is over 30 cm in length and can be up to 2 kg. or more in weight.
Here we show you a mother pad that has been vertically cut to show the true content of a mature Opuntia ficus Indica Nopal pad. Notice the heavy concentration of fiber rich membranes. This size is the best for dehydration. It is what we exclusively use for our Top quality Nopal powder. Many other dehydrators will tell you that they use this size but they really cannot because of the extra cost of buying them as the price is higher. They often buy fresh Nopalitos baby leaves when the product is available at a cheaper price at wholesale food markets. We as growers have these mature mother pads available all year around and this is why our Nopal powder is prized as the finest in consistent quality, guaranteeing you a high nutrient, mineral, and fiber rich Nopal powder product.
Our dehydration technique is unique and a secret, once you are a customer we will explain but for now we can say we are one hundred percent natural, solar with shading. This allows us to be clean, precise and above all sanitary.
* We do NOT dry on concrete floors.
* We do NOT have cross contamination.
* We DO use natural solar dehydration.
* We DO have the best sanitary method known.
We can assure you the very best quality Nopal powder on the global market. We hope that you will contact us very soon and become a valued customer so you can be guaranteed top quality Nopal powder.
