processing

Once the pulses reache our warehouse we segregate our them for initial quality checks. Before processing, the pulses are washed, cleaned, as all the unwanted dust and mud sticking to the pulses are separated out and disposed. This initial process of pre-processing is to ensure the pulses are clean even before processing.


During the processing stage, the skin from the pre-processed pulses are removed through silting process and pulses are split and packed as required, while the left behind husk is packed separately. During the processing stage the output ratio of pulses to husk is an approximately 80% pulses to a 20% husk.

The husk is packed separately. The husk is used for manufacturing high quality animal feed.
