Protein Dried

Kaamos Inc. is bringing Protein Dried™ Technology to Canadian Cannabis Producers that will increase both production and processing.

There are two challenges for licensed producers, especially with the legalization of recreational marijuana coming next year:

  • Cannabis processing is often delayed due to the lengthy drying period, which currently is about two weeks
  • Cannabis has a shelf life of only 4-6 months.

Protein Dried™ will reduce cannabis drying time from 14 days to 18 hours and extend current shelf life from six months to at least 18 months.

Kaamos Inc. has signed a Letter of Intent with Protein Solutions Group (PSG) to purchase an exclusive license allowing Kaamos Inc. to immediately sell and sub license PSG’s proprietary Protein Dried™ technology to Canadian licensed producers.

If you are interested in finding out more about the process and/or buying a license, please contact Donna Tremble, CEO, Kaamos Inc. at 807-630-6865 or info@kaamos.ca

Questions & Answers

What are the three parts of the Protein Dried™ process?

The three steps to this proprietary drying process are cleaning, enrobing and drying.

First, cleaning. The cleaning stage is critical.

The enrobing stage consists of either dipping or spraying the PS Coating onto the prepared items that need to be dehydrated. From there, the product is drained and put onto drying trays.

Once on the drying trays, it moves onto the drying stage. This is where the material is placed into PSG’s proprietary drying tunnels. And then, in less than 18 hours, there is fully dehydrated, cellularly intact product that can be packaged, milled or pressed.

What is the PS Coating used in the Protein Dried™ process?

PS Coating is a 100% organic, whey based protein that enrobes organic matter and protects it while dehydrating it.

What makes the PS Coating organic?

It is sourced from only organic products. And all of the ingredients are FDA and GRAS approved. You can even eat PS Coating straight.

How quickly does the process take to dry organic materials?

It depends on several factors, especially at what water level the organic matter starts with. To bring something down to the 5 – 10% dehydration level it can be done in 18 hours or less. If you are starting with a product with a low moisture level to begin with or you are looking for a moisture level above 10%, then it could take even less time.

How are mold, bacteria and other contaminants prevented during the drying process?

Because the organic matter is coated to be dried with the PS Coating, the enrobing process keeps all of the good contents in and the bad contents out. This is also why it is critical for the product to be contaminant free prior to the enrobing process.

What can the client do with their dehydrated organic matter?

If you take the matter all the way down to 5 – 10% dehydration level, you can now safely store or package/ship it anywhere. 

What makes this process better than other dehydration products and systems out there?

It is the only 100% organic dehydration system out there. It doesn’t use temperature extremes, expensive equipment, toxic chemical, or leave product exposed to the elements. It has a whey-based protein coating that enrobes any organic matter. It is then put into PSG’s proprietary drying tunnels which are clean rooms with humidity control. And, within 18 hours, you have a cellularly intact, dehydrated and preserved product.

In the Cannabis Industry, the need for curing is eliminated. Because the cells are preserved, intact and rapidly dehydrated, there is no opportunity for the cells to break down.

Protein Dried™ processes and products are safe, inexpensive and maintain more of the nutrients and minerals you are looking to maintain or extract from your products.

What are the drying tunnels?

They are essentially clean rooms with temperature, humidity and air flow control. They cost fractions less to implement and operate than traditional drying equipment such as freeze dryers, tumble dryers, etc.

What size is a typical drying tunnel?

The drying tunnels are customizable to any production size needed; from a 6’x6’ portable grow tent size to a multi-room, automated “clean room”. Typically, a 6’x6’ area could dry about 100 pounds of product.

What type of license is Kaamos offering?

We are offering sub licenses in the areas of cannabis.

What exactly do I need to purchase?

A sub-licensee will be required to pay a one-time license fee and procure a minimum product purchase. 

What are the costs associated with this process?

Once the right sized drying tunnel is developed for you, the only ongoing costs would be for the PS Coating.

Is there a minimum order of PS coating per month?

Yes which will be determined by geographical location, size of market and other factors.

How much product does PS Coating dehydrate?

PS Coating dehydrates on a 1:100 ratio. Therefore 1,000 kilograms of PS Coating will dehydrate 100,000 kilograms (110 tons) of raw product.

Won’t this process damage the plant or knock off the cannabis trichomes?

Typically, the raw materials would be dipped into the PS Coating. But, for Cannabis, it is beneficial to use PSG’s strategic partner’s electrostatic spraying technology to ensure proper and complete coverage for materials with as much surface area as cannabis buds.

You mention the ability to forgo the curing process . . . is this even possible?

Because the cellular structures are kept preserved, intact and rapidly dehydrated, there is no opportunity for the cells to break down and form chlorine or lose terpenes. So, the drying time is cut down from 2-3 weeks to only 18 hours. The curing phase would be entirely your decision. If you still wanted to use the curing process, you would just need to take the product down to a higher moisture content.

What about the chlorophyll that usually gets removed during the curing process?

While it is true that this process does not remove the chlorophyll during the drying process, the freshness of the finished product appears to have eliminated any off-putting flavours from the burning magnesium within the chlorophyll.
