HANDO® stands for high quality standards in the production and processing of Nopal powder. For the production of Hando® Nopal powder only cacti from untouched eco-systems are used.
Vitamin C, calcium, potassium and beta-carotene are just some of the active ingredients of Nopal. In order to maintain the quality of the nutrients, HANDO® attaches great importance to high quality in the production and processing of Hando® Nopal powder.
Nopal: Use as tea or powder
Two species of cacti are particularly important in processing: tea is mainly extracted from the Nopal species “Opuntia ficus indica”. The cacti needed for this grow on natural soils without artificial irrigation and without the use of synthetic fertilizers. This is the only way to ensure the highest quality. In order to achieve optimum drying results, the cactus shreds are placed in foil tunnels. Dried in the sun, they turn black through oxidation. In the drying chambers, Nopal tea retains a lighter colour. There, the Nopal shreds are turned by hand every day. The tea is used to support a cholesterol-conscious diet.
