PuntiaVera® Dehydrated Nopal Cactus Cladodes (Opuntia ficus indica) Tea Bag Cut, Ingredient is Certified Organic. Traditionally, Nopal cactus pads (Cladodes) have been sliced and sun-dried, however that traditional method exposes the delicate inner flesh of the vegetable Nopal to UV radiation (possible nutrient degradation) and more importantly it exposes this human food to potential rodent, bird droppings and insect contamination and infestations. Garuda International's PuntiaVera® Certified Organic Nopal Cactus Cladodes Powder (Opuntia ficus indica) raw material is sliced, dried and milled under strictly controlled conditions in regulated, indoor food processing facilities. While controlled food-grade processing is more costly and capital-intensive for vegetable products, safety, quality & consistency are fundamental requirements for all of Garuda International's ingredients/raw materials. The particle size of this material is especially suitable for use in herbal teas and tea bags (tea bag cut).
Microbial counts, moisture content and particle size are carefully controlled through proprietary processing techniques in food processing facilities (no outdoor sun-drying) with rigorous testing of every batch.
