Graminex® begins preparing its Rye Pollen Flower Pollen Extract™ early each year by selecting premium quality seed and the appropriate acreage amounts to plant. At the optimal time for each pollen type, Graminex® harvests the pollen. It then moves through our proprietary process consisting of a tightly controlled series of steps that separates the pollen from the plant material. Yearly differences in the properties of the pollen, such as moisture and pollen density, require minute adjustments in the processing to achieve standardization. Before processing our laboratory technicians test each batch in the laboratory on smaller scale equipment near the manufacturing floor, in order to minimize the equipment set up time.
Storage for quality approved pollen and dried material exceeds 285,000 cubic feet, enabling Graminex® to produce our Flower Pollen Extract™ to order, just in time, all year round. Our temperature controlled storage ensures the maintenance of pollen potency and efficacy.
After passing through multiple quality control checkpoints the finished bulk Flower Pollen Extract™ is either sent directly to our customers or used to make capsules and tablets that are packaged on our state of the art automated packaging line.
