High Pressured Liquefied Nitrogen Gas is used to control grinding chamber at (-150 C) as a result loss of essential oils, minerals, olio resins and aroma can be marginally minimized. Cryogenic Grinding Technology reduces the material to particle size in less time with higher efficiency, which is difficult to attain at ambient temperature grinding in conventional grinding units.
The advantages of Cryogenic Grinding Technology with Respect to Conventional Grinding Techniques are as under:
|Cryogenic Grinding Technology||Conventional Grinding|
|Improves the natural Aroma by minimizing the loss of essential oils and olio resins (Approx. 3 – 10 %loss).||In Conventional Grinding Technique the loss is about 15 – 43 %.|
|Obtain finest particle size upto 50 micron (300 mesh).||Size ranges from 500 – 1000 micron (150 – 30 mesh) in Conventional Grinding Techniques.|
|Better in terms of higher natural aroma and natural colour due to lower grinding temperature.||Loss of color and aroma due to heat generated in grinding chamber.|
|Overall grinding capacity can be enhanced by 2 – 3 times as chilled process line & process equipment is not disturbed by thermal fatigue.||Lower grinding capacity at higher power consumption.|
|At Cryogenic temperature, the product at (-150 C) cools down and crystalizes at the microscopic level and hence it becomes rock solid. This crystallization locks the oils in the product and makes it easy to be ground.||While grinding, oil heats and evaporates making product dull and odorless.|
|Cryogenically processed spices have longer shelf life than the conventionally ground ones due to higher Volatile oil in them.||Due to loss of Oil, product life reduces substantially.|
|As cryogenically processed spices are rich in essential oils & olio resins, delicious recipes with higher taste and aroma can be made by adding little quantity of Hathi Spices.||Higher consumption of product.|

Color In Chilli
Characteristics color of the capsicum fruits are generated by the presence of pigments such as chlorophyll and carotenoids.
Capsaicin Chilli Content
The pungency of chilli is due to capsaicin and traces of allied chemicals. Pungency can be objectively evaluated by estimating the capsaicin content.
Water content or moisture content is the quantity of water contained in a material.
The ash content is a measure of the total amount of minerals present within a food.
Curcuminoid Content in Turmeric
The curcuminoids are natural phenols that are responsible for the yellow color of turmeric.
Piperine Content in Pepper
A pungent alkaloid that is concentrated in the outer skin of pepper berries.
It is a measure of flavour and aroma of the spices.
The insoluble residue of an acid hydrolysis followed by an alkaline one. This residue contains true cellulose and insoluble lignin.
Particle size distribution (105 μ)
An index indicating what sizes of particles are present in what proportions in the sample particle group to be measured.
Food poisoning caused by infection with the salmonella bacterium. Many infections are due to ingestion of contaminated food.
Cause biodegradation of natural materials, which can be unwanted when it becomes food spoilage.
Can cause serious illness in humans. Infection symptoms and signs include bloody diarrhoea, stomach cramps, vomiting and occasionally, fever.
Group of bacteria that are used as indicators of the potential presence of pathogens, viruses or parasites in a sample.
Total Viable Count
This is a count for all bacteria, fungi, yeast & mould that will grow in aerobic condition.
Yeast and fungi are normally found on wet or moist surfaces with an organic nutrient source such as aerators, screens or in nature on leaf surfaces and top soil.
PESTISIDE & Mycotoxins
Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2
Naturally occurring mycotoxin. Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aspergillus flavus is common and widespread in nature.
Is an synthetic organic compound with chlorinated aromatic molecules.
They are used primarily in pest control as an alternative to chlorinated hydrocarbons that persist in the environment.
A substance used for destroying insects or other organisms harmful to cultivated plants or to animals.
Secondary metabolites produced by microfungi that are capable of causing disease and death in humans and other animals.
A toxic metabolite from Aspergillus ochraceu.
