At Kalustyan, we offer services that are top-notch due to state-of-the-art food safety and quality controls in place supporting them. We are known for getting ahead of regulation by ensuring our standards are air-tight in coordination with FSMA, CTPAT, and other regulations. To ensure speedy turnaround time, it’s all about keeping documentation current and up to date, a process that we’ve been able to carefully fine-tune over the years. Unlike most competitors, Kalustyan has total control over the production line and manufacturing using cryogenic mills and specialized toll work. Custom blending and private label services are guaranteed to be sustainable and safe, with the traceability of each product reaching back to the original farm.


Cryogenic Milling

Kalustyan uses a cryogenic milling process that grinds products at sub-zero temperatures, optimizing both quality and flavor. Standard milling often results in an inferior product due to:

  • Icon
    Heat Generation
  • Icon
    Loss of Volatile Oils
  • Icon
    Residual Stress
  • Icon
    Shorter Tool Life
  • Icon
    Product Oxidation
  • Icon
    Gumming and Clogging

Many spices naturally have high moisture and the high heat produced by standard milling allows the moisture to escape the product and cause the mill to clog. Cryogenic milling at Kalustyan begins cooling the product before it enters the mill and continuously throughout the process using liquid nitrogen. Cryogenic milling allows us to keep the volatile oils and moisture in our products, not on our machinery.

Cryogenic grinding also allows products to be ground and crushed at a lower level of stress, depending on the hardness of each product, causing in lower energy output. Since less energy is used, there is an even amount of pressure used during the grinding process. This results in a higher quality product that is more fine, uniform, and has an improved aroma.


Contract Manufacturing

Kalustyan offers customized, large scale product cleaning for raw material and regrind for customers. Providing steam, chemical, or irradiation treatment, we will handle the product according to customer preference to ensure a clean and safe product.
