Cactus pads contain high levels of vitamins A and C, B-complex vitamins and iron. Also, internal its mucilagenous fluid is extracted to be used as a dietary fiber supplement. Industrializing cactus-pad harvests could be a boon to the health-food industry, but the tough exteriors of cacti present a problem with manual processing.
Multiple thorns or spines must be shaved off the pads before they can be diced. "In order to streamline this process, we conceived of our design," said one of two inventors from Ontario, Calif.
Serving as an alternative to manual processing, the CACTUS CLEANER allows for quicker, easier de-thorning and peeling of cactus pads. Besides saving time and effort, it also prevents wastage. The device is easy to operate and ideal for food processors, health-food companies, vitamin companies, etc.
The original design was submitted to the Orange County office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
