Seed to shelf, Allive has teams of subject matter experts who understand the challenges associated with our operations.
As hemp growers and suppliers, we’ve successfully decreased environmental impact at every stage. Our manufacturing process relies on cutting edge methods and technology to optimize efficiency, reduce our footprint, and yield products of game-changing quality.
Approved seed varieties, suitable for climatic conditions, are cultivated in the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, three countries known for the fresh, clean earth and pure water. By working with hemp growers who are stewards for the planet, mindful of what goes into the earth, we’ve elevated farming standards and created an effective model for creating the high-quality hemp outputs sought-after globally.
To extend shelf-life while preserving beneficial compounds, raw, whole seeds are processed using a gentle water steam treatment.
After briefly being heated through contact with a hot tube, a small amount of steam is injected to reduce the presence of microorganisms and halt the germination process. Proper storage, handling, and care are maintained at all times.
We test all hemp seeds before harvest and cleaning for various attributes: microbiological quality, physical purity, sensory and chemical composition, including THC levels. All seeds are treated to a rigorous cleaning process that is designed to remove contaminants and prolong shelf-life, while preserving beneficial compounds.
For the kill step, we use an organically certified water-steam process called Log5, which is significant to maintaining food quality and safety. The raw, organic whole hemp seeds are briefly heated through contact with a hot tube before a small amount of steam is injected to minimize contaminants and halt germination, without causing harm to vital organoleptic properties.
This thermal treatment is effective against a variety of microorganisms, particularly pathogenic organisms (germs) as E. coli, coliforms, Enterobacteriaceae, listeria monocytogenes, bacillus cereus, TPC, anaerobic sulphite reducing bacteria, salmonella, mould, yeast, staphylococcus, and inactivate viruses.
At no point does product temperature exceed 75 °C. Hemp seeds are then stabilized through a quick cooling process that introduces filtered air in a vibrating fluidized bed. We ensure proper storage, handling, and care at all times. Hemp seeds are kept at an ambient temperature of 10 °C before being shipped or produced as hemp food products.
Our agronomists work directly with farmers, offering guidance and tips throughout the growing and harvesting process. Through a model that brings together cultivars, geneticists, and other strategic partners, we test and refine, choosing the best seeds to produce naturally hardy, nutrient-dense crops. Our purpose is to bring superior products to the medical, consumer, and lifestyle market and advance Allive as a mainstay in the global hemp-derived market.
