How are Holy Lama Spice Drops made?
Most of the spices and herbs used in Holy Lama Spice Drops are obtained from local farms in India. These farms are monitored by the Spices Board of India, ensuring they adhere to quality regulations. The field officers pay regular visits to Holy Lama's farmers, guiding them on best practice. The spices are first cold-pressed using rollers – crushing them in a non-heat generating manner ensures that the vibrant flavours are preserved. The crushed spices are then passed through an extraction vessel where the ethyl acetate (the solvent) is percolated in order to obtain the maximum volume of spice extract. The extracts are passed through a de-solventiser, where the solvent is removed using vacuum suction so as not to adversely affect the flavours. All that remains at this stage is the highly-concentrated oleoresin (oil & resin). Accordingly, the oleoresin is mixed with emulsifier polysorbate 80 to yield the final product in the desired ratio suitable for culinary use. Polysorbate 80 is extremely versatile, highly-effective, and entirely non-toxic, non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic. It is also listed as an approved ingredient by in The Handbook of Green Chemicals and Whole Foods whose standards, developed by a team of scientists over many years, are some of the strictest around.
