The extracted inner gel (fillet) is further processed to remove the pulp and fiber.

This gel is then concentrated utilizing cold-temperature evaporation to produce a liquid concentrate ready for spray drying. Finally, the non-preserved gel concentrate is spray dried, guaranteeing the presence of polysaccharides and leaving the natural balance of rich nutrients undisturbed.
