Pneumatic conveying and separation systems are used which eliminate human touch to the extent possible .
The plant setup on a 30,000 sq/m area with solid concrete structure is located on the main Ahmedabad-Delhi National Highway 115 Kilometers from Ahmedabad, connected by Rail , Road and Air with the National/International routes. Good Manufacturing practices integrated with International Quality Management System have been implemented for achieving consistency in product quality, increasing customer confidence and satisfaction.
The major cultivation centers for Psyllium seed more commonly known as Isabgol are located in the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. The plant grows on well-drained sandy loam soil. Seeds are sown (3.5 to 4.5 Kg per acre) in November and December. Cool dry weather is favorable to the crop. Rainy and cloudy weather at the time of maturity and frost at the flowering stage affect adversely both yield and quality of seeds. The crop is given 5-7 irrigation and weeding is done when the crop is about 1 ½ months old. The plant gives out profuse tillerings and the tillers vary from 25 to 80 in number depending on the fertility of the soil. Manure or chemical fertilizer applications are not required. The crop is ready for harvest in about 3 ½ – 4 months from sowing. The spikes are harvested in March – April when they turn red. The yield per acre varies from 6.5 to 8.5 quintals depending on the cultivation areas, the weather conditions at the time of flowering and harvesting.
The Product & Use
Psyllium , Isabgol or Isphagula (Botanical: Plantago Ovata Forsk) is mainly grown in India was popularised with the advent of Arabians and Persians in India as early as 10th Century A.D. under the popular name of Fleawort or Flea Seed Husk. Its use as a mild bulk laxative spread to the United States and other European countries during middle of 19th century and increased substantially later on and has maintained an important place in therapeutics inspite of the development of many newer synthetic compounds.
In indigenous medicine Ayurvedic and Unani the seeds and husk are used as emollient, demulcent and laxative and in the treatment of chronic constipation, amoebic and bacillary dysentery and diarrhea. The efficacy of Psyllium is due tothe large quantity of mucilage, the action of which is purely mechanical as the husk swells into a jelly like mass with liquids. Recent advance research carried out in the United States and elsewhere shows that Psyllium Husks used as adietary supplement has helped lowering the human serum cholesterol level
