Farmers milk Cows & Yaks daily using the traditional methods without any modern devices. They collect roughly 6 gallons of milk to make 2 pounds of Himalayan Chews. The milk is boiled for 4-5 hours then poured into a centrifuge device to remove all the fat. The fat is boiled to make butter and sold as a separate commodity. The fat free milk is used to make the Himalayan chew.
Once the milk has cooled it is treated with 10 ml lime juice & 10 mg salt per 100 gallons of milk to coagulate the milk. Solids are separated using a burlap sac, washed several times using warm water to remove the whey, hints of salt & lime.
The solids in the burlap sac are squeezed for 3 weeks until the cake is formed with a maximum moisture of 5%. The cake is cut to size then cooked under the sun & smoke for 2 to 3 months. The chews are collected from the farmers, brought to the Himalayan Corporation warehouse in Kathmandu and sorted for quality. The best 10-15% are retained and shipped to the USA and remaining are sold at the local market for human consumption & other purposes. The chews are further cleaned using a buffing machine & lime juice then cut to size and packaged in the facility in Washington State.
