Penca Zabila has the most modern factory in Europe for Aloe Vera processing and has the most advanced industrial technology at their disposition. Among other advantages it has exclusive access to a tunnel for continuous Cold Processing without AIR throughout all production cycles, which allows obtain fresh pure Aloe Vera free of bacteria and without contact with AIR, for a unique worldwide quality.
As our 100% Organic farms, also Penca Zábila have Industry Organic Certificated to comply with all requirements of development and ecological composition imposed. This dual classification Ecological Farms + Ecological Industry, gives our products a special added value because it certifies that the whole process has been developed under rules 100% Eco-Friendly, from cultivation to final packaging, ensuring that Aloe Penca is the Organic European Aloe Vera.
Always the latest technology to preserve our Aloe in its pure origin.
Aloe Vera packaging that incorporate silicone valves to prevent the entry of oxygen, maintaining the quality of our aloe until the end of its consumption. Aloe Vera w/o AIR to preserve the maximum effectiveness of the active ingredients and release each day the best Fresh Aloe Vera. AirFresh boxes to conserve our plants without soil for months, Dispensing siicone valves, …
The PENCA ZABILA complete AIRLESS COLD TUNNEL process and the subsequent stabilization of the juice of the leaf with the minimum amounts of natural additives, ensure the permanence of the active principles of the fresh Aloe plant. The Penca Zábila industrial process is subject to the strictest standards of European Manufacturing
It is important that this whole process is carried out as quickly as possible, since the aloe vera leaves, begin to rust and lose their properties immediately after being cut, so it is vital, to get a high quality product, thoroughness At the time of collection, hygiene and speed to move the harvested product to the processing plant.
Once our raw material is transported to the processing factory, and as soon as possible, all the leaves of Aloe Vera Barbadensis Miller are introduced in pools of cold water where they remain for 24 hours. This process serves to clean the leaves externally of all the natural impurities of a farm, and internally to remove from the leaves all the aloin.
After the cleaning, the operators select the leaves of Aloe to which immediately, the lateral peaks and the base are eliminated. This operation is carried out with a system of blades specially designed for this purpose and placed before the peeling machine.
Once the peaks and base of the Aloe leaf are removed, it is introduced into the peeling machine, whose mission is to remove the hard bark from the leaves and get a clean file of aloe vera pulp that immediately falls into the crusher machine where the Larger pieces of pulp are converted into smaller ones that can begin their homogenization.
At this point it is fundamental to introduce the cold chain, as soon as the Aloe Vera leaf is introduced into the peeler, we begin to work at 5ºC, necessary to paralyze the oxidation, the temperature is kept low throughout the following process, ensuring a product Finished of the highest quality. This cold is achieved with the tubular cooling tunnel connected to the crusher hopper, and where all the crushed product will circulate, cooling its temperature until the end of the processing.All the elaboration process is carried out in our exclusive AIR-FREE COLD tunnel Penca Zábila® that allows to obtain a fresh Pure Aloe free of bacteria and without contact with the air, and therefore of a unique quality in the world
This is the key point of our processing chain, since it is here where the definitive product is elaborated and where the necessary reagents are added for its attainment. Once past the initial process of crushing and chilling, the pieces of pulp are still too large and what we are looking for in obtaining a pure juice of aloe vera, to get it we must continue to crush our product. In the machine of homogenizado the product remains the necessary time to get that all the pulp has lost its consistency and it forms a kind of gel to which we add the necessary products to avoid its oxidation and to increase its conservation, in our case this is the Add preservatives.
When the product is homogenized, it is transferred by means of a helical pump through the tubular cold tunnel to the regulating tanks. These pumps are specially designed for the movement of very thick fluids and are the most suitable for our processing line.
PENCA ZABILA ® is scientifically certified as 'The Best Aloe Vera in the World' according to the Spectral Laboratory of Cologne in Germany, the most prestigious laboratory in Europe specializing in Aloe Vera.
After homogenization, our product is sent through the helical pump to the regulating reservoirs, the process continues when the regulator tanks are full, at which time we transfer our juice to the filtering machine by means of another helical pump.
This process is one of the most delicate in the chain. With it, we get a thinner or thicker product depending on what is required in the order. To achieve this we increase or decrease the number of filter plates that are placed in the filter press. This process removes most of the fibers from aloe vera, which can be obtained from a very fluid liquid to a much thicker. From here our final product is transferred to the launch tanks to the fillers where they are kept in the cold until the final packaging.
