  • Washing/ Drying/ Fanning/Destoning
  • In line magnets

Grinding and Blending

At SDS Spices (Pvt) Ltd, we have a variety of machines to meet custom grinding sizes. In addition to pre- cleaning, we use various screen sizes to eliminate unwanted material post grinding. Furthermore, we have introduced a raw material cooling system to reduce the loss of volatile oils when grinding finer spice powders.

Sterilizing

We follow industry standards for microbial reduction by using Irradiation or steam sterilization. The type of treatment is decided based on customer requirements. Microbial and chemical testing completed at globally accredited laboratories. All finished material are tested prior to shipment.
