Field fresh butternut squash is sorted, washed, trimmed, blanched, and air-dried. Then, various cleaning, sorting, and food safety steps are conducted, prior to cutting or milling into the desired cut size. Silva’s production facility is an FSSC22000 certified operation. The fresh raw material is grown mainly throughout Chile, China, and Hungary.
Steam sterilization can be added for microbiological reduction or to introduce a validated kill step. This ingredient category is available as all-natural, as well as non-GMO verified.
