Brushed - Washed Potatoes
Potatoes naturally are grown underground. In Cyprus they are grown in red soil which is particularly thick and can become very sticky under different circumstances. When they are harvested there is always soil remains on the tube. Red soil though can give a golden brown finish to the tube. We as a company had to come up with a solution for our customers either wanting the golden look or a clean soil free potato.
Our equipment is able to remove 95%, sometimes reaching 100% of soil remains from tubes. This way the potatoes keep a golden brown look but the excess weight is removed in order to provide a high end product with minimum deficiencies.
If the client wants to provide a more convenient approach for the consumer, he can choose to wash the potatoes. By doing that the end product will be soil free and ready to be consumed.
