Manufacturing process is standardized and simple. Various ingredients are dried to bring down the moisture level before grinding. Then they are mixed in the required proportion and blended thoroughly and then packed. Baking powder is made from sodium bi-carbonate, edible starch and sodium aluminium sulphate whereas jelly crystals from sugar, fumaric acid, potassium citrate, edible gums, salt, carrageen and food colours and flavours. Making of custard powder requires edible starch, corn flour and food colors and flavours.
The method of production used to produce the jelly crystals is to mix sugar, gelatine, colours and flavours together and place into the ribbon mixer for approx five minutes to ensure that all ingredients are evenly distributed and blended together.
This is then discharged through the bottom outlet into a stainless steel tub set up on a roller platform and positioned close to the sachet machine. The crystals are then placed into hopper attached to the sachet machine ready for filling into sachets.
The size of the sachets are determined by the forming box fitted on machine and is capable of producing sachets with a max size up to 120mm x 120mm or as small as 50mm x 25mm and is capable of an output of 75 sachets per minute.
The machine was previously packing 55 x 44g sachets per minute containing jelly crystals in assorted colors and flavours each weighing 44g. These sachets were then placed into a pack 75mm x 120mm. The packs were then sealed by carton sealer ready to be placed into the outer shipper for distribution.
