ERMAK Bio Qurt
ERMAK Bio Qurt is the only factory-made qurt in Uzbekistan.
Thanks to the state-of-the-art equipment that is used in our company, we have the full production cycle, from production to packaging. ERMAK Bio Qurt is available in any supermarket across Uzbekistan and comes in packs of 160 grams, 80 grams and 40 grams.
Qurt is a fermented dairy product. Qurt was invented by nomadic peoples of Central Asia. It is a dried concentrate obtained from natural milk and mixed with another natural concentrate, salt. The qurt production process rests on strict quality control of raw materials and of the whole production cycle, and it allows us to supply products of consistently high quality.
ERMAK Bio Qurt is not only tasty, but also healthy. Over 60 percent of consumers of qurt are children. This is for reason. The benefits of qurt for children are undisputable. Qurt promotes growth of healthy bacteria in digestive tract, and strengthens the immune system. Qurt is digested faster and easier than regular milk.
The unique content of ERMAK Bio Qurt benefits both children and adults.
Qurt is rich in vitamin A, which improves vision, promotes body growth, renewal of skin cells and rejuvenation of the skin. Calcium which is so abundant in qurt improves metabolic rate and strengthens the bone tissues. Vitamin E, present in qurt, slows down the skin cells’ aging process, and enriches the blood with oxygen and prevents the formation of blood clots.
Qurt also helps fat malabsorption. Delicious dairy product makes it easier to endure heat and is recommended for consumption in hot climates.
ERMAK Bio Qurt is unique, as in addition to basic minerals, it contains bifidus bacteria and lactobacilli. The unique composition of the qurt was developed in cooperation with the Institute of Microbiology of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan. Bifidobacteria contribute to improved intestinal function, and restore the Acid/Alkaline balance.
ERMAK Bio Qurt is available in two types: traditional qurt and qurt with basil taste.
The first batch of ERMAK Bio Culture Qurt (or Bio Qurt) was released in 2008. We started mastering the technology of qurt production with glass sheets. The technology is still popular to this day: the qurt gets a round shape, once it’s rolled between two large glass sheets.
Nowadays, we produce ERMAK Bio Qurt at the state-of-the-art production machine which has no parallels in Uzbekistan and Central Asia. To introduce consumers to the process of production of the popular product, we visited the sanctum sanctorum, the manufacturing department of the company.
Compliance with sanitary standards is a fundamental requirement. The production department resembles a medical institution. All employees wear white coats with their hair contained, and rooms are clean. Any food spoilage is immediately disposed of.
The process of manufacturing the ERMAK Bio Qurt begins with mixing the suzma (strained yoghurt) with salt. Then we add the selection of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium cultures to the prepared mixture. The unique composition of the qurt was developed in cooperation with the Institute of Microbiology of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan. Bifidobacteria contribute to improved intestinal function, and restore the Acid/Alkaline balance.
Once ERMAK Bio Qurt mixture is ready, it is shaped into larger cubes, which are cut into smaller ones by special knives. Then the cubes are placed on a special batch roller line. The machine processes the raw material and rolls the mixture into perfect balls — bio culture qurt.
The machine is unique and is second to none anywhere in Uzbekistan. Engineers polished out the idea of our Director and designed an equipment that has had no parallels so far. One may have a legitimate question: How do other producers roll qurt?
The answer is: They use large glass sheets between which the raw material is rolled. The disadvantage of their technology is that at a time one can roll up to 15 balls only. And the process requires the active operator involvement and takes longer time. With the machine installed in the ERMAK, the process of rolling the qurt is fully automated. This means that we can produce more products with right shape in less time.
After ERMAK Bio Qurt is rolled in balls, it is placed on a special board and put in the drying vault. There it is left to dry. Prior to packaging, the dried qurt is subjected to manual processing to remove edges.
The finished product is packaged in our production facilities. The packaging of qurt is as important as the product composition. That is why we use expensive and state-of-the-art vacuum packing equipment made in Germany for ERMAK Bio Qurt. We also use expensive vacuum bagging film for packaging. High-quality vacuum preserves beneficial bifidobacteria in ERMAK Bio Qurt.
The average manufacturing cycle (from strained yoghurt to packaged qurt) takes 12 hours. The cycle length depends on weather conditions. The ERMAK Bio Qurt manufacturing teams work in two shifts, each having 15-16 employees.
Today, ERMAK Bio Qurt is produced and packed in the state-of-the-art equipment which has no parallels anywhere in Uzbekistan. Why do we put such an emphasis on production and packaging? Unfortunately the wholesale and retail shops across the country are full of lower quality qurt. Since other manufacturers do not have their own production facilities, they buy qurt from regular food markets. In most cases, the qurt available there is blended with flour to give it a whitish color and heavier weight. Then they pack it in lower quality packaging machines that are usually made in China and cannot ensure proper vacuum packing. As a result, customers get a poor quality semifresh product without due protection.
The development of a large-scale production requires from us larger investments. Never the less, the outcomes justify our efforts. Special agencies of the sanitary-epidemiological inspection service lab test ERMAK Bio Qurt every three months. We regularly make sample purchases to check the quality our products sold on the markets.
We take pride in the fact that for all these years we have never failed to maintain the quality of ERMAK products that we committed ourselves to provide.
