From January 2015 Vestkorn offers pea fibre in pellets. Vestkorn pea fibre pellets is a 100% Natural product – not processed by the use of chemicals. The ingredient is made out of the hull of cleaned peas. Pelletizing of pea fibre adds several advantages:
- Increased product safety
- Cheaper logistics
- Reduces space needed in your storage facility
- Easier to handle
- Less dust
As the hull of the pea is the part exposed to the environment, there is an increased risk that the hull may have unwanted levels of bacteriological activity. By the Vestkorn pelletising process, we have proven that the bacteriological activity is controlled and reduced to a low and secure level. For safety we highly recommend to use heat treated hullfiber.
Due to higher weight per liter, the pea fibre pellet from Vestkorn will imply cheaper transportation and handling cost both externally and in your facility. Higher weight per liter also reduces the space needed for a sufficient stock.
EASIER TO HANDLE
The pelletising og the Vestkorn pea fibre, makes the products much easier to handle. The big bag is much more stable and typically also has less height compared to un-pelletised pea fiber.
Pea fibre can be a dusty material. The pelletising reduces the dust and makes the product both easier to handle and improves the environment for your workers. This can also imply less cleaning and less wasted material to the benefit both for you and the sustainability!
