Paprika 140 ASTA
Paprika is a ground spice that is traditionally made from Capsicum annuum varietals. Here at Olam Spices, our paprika is grown from proprietary seeds that have been developed by our experts. The crop is cultivated by our farmers, with oversight by our crop managers, in the Southwestern United States and harvested by our agricultural operations team.
After it is harvested, the paprika is delivered to our processing facility in Las Cruces, New Mexico where it is dried, ground and stored in Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and kept in cold storage to preserve the color and flavor. When producing this product, we blend batches of ground paprika to match our customers desired ASTA level.
