The source of our Dried Red Chili is from audited supplier from Guangxi, one of the main growing areas of Red Chili in China. Among many other varieties， small Rice Chili produced in Guangxi is the hottest one in China.
We buy Red Chili from our audited suppliers who grow Red Chili in remote mountainous areas far away from industries with low heavy metals, managing the application of pesticides as per our supervision so that there is no pollution of pesticide residues in the products.
The harvest begins from late August on when the Red Chili begins to show red color. Just like drying Star Anise, Red Chilis are usually dipped in hot water of about 80 degrees centigrade for about 2 minutes, and then put in the sunshine for about four days. Processed in this way, the Dried Red Chili shows very bright red color. If the weather is not good, drying machines will be applied to ensure that the Red Chili is dried in time to avoid Aflatoxins.
In the market, to save trouble, some people fumigate the Red Chili with SO2 instead of dipping down in hot water. The Red Chili processed in this way shows yellowish red color, and what worse, the pungency has been greatly affected.
Our company handles Dried Red Chili processed in the traditional way-- dipping in hot water before drying.
After we have purchased raw materials from our audited suppliers, our workers will remove the stems from the Dried Red Chili with the special machine. If you also want the stems and caps of the Dried Red Chili removed, however, the job has to be done manually. After that, our workers will remove impurities and foreign matters from the Red Chili and finally pack them in PP bags of 25kg net each. During the whole course, strong magnets and metal detectors are applied to avoid pollution of iron and other metals.
Dried Red Chili is usually used as raw materials for making spices and seasonings, as raw materials for making animal feeds, and even as raw materials for making pharmaceuticals.
Our annual output of Red Chili Broken is about 100 tons.
