Production of Ducal® Beans

A unique food

We know that beans are a super food. Good for your health and for the environment, that is why we are very careful in the manufacturing process of our beans to ensure quality, flavor and versatility in our different flavors and packaging.

Bean making process

Our elaboration process is divided into 7 stages, which go from the reception and cleaning of grains, through cooking and grinding to ensure a correct formulation and homogenization in our recipe.


• Grain washing
From the moment of receipt of raw material we ensure the safety of the product, going through 2 types of grain cleaning: dry and wet to ensure that there are no natural particles, foreign materials or metals.


• The secret of flavor
The grain is put into pressure cookers where it is cooked to eliminate tannins, to increase the digestibility of proteins and carbohydrates, to later go through a grinding system using hammer and mesh mills. Already in the mixing tank, the spices are applied and mixed with an external circuit that allows another control point.


• No preservatives
Through a thermal process using steam autoclaves, we ensure sterilization by heating in hermetically sealed containers to keep our food free of microorganisms and pathogens, allowing food to be stored for long periods of time.

And that is how we managed to share with you a bean recipe that has been improved from generation to generation to offer the best combination of softness, flavor and nutrition.
