Our grower Cooperative is a Rural Production Society association made up of over 350 growers and processors that grow and process top quality fresh Nopal, Nopal Juice and Nopal powder. We naturally dehydrate and Spray-dry our Nopal, close to our fields assuring you freshness and quality.
We are located close to the Region of Milpa Alta, renowned for its high quality Nopal throughout the world. The central and northern areas of Mexico grow Nopal mostly for Cattle and livestock consumption. Don't be misguided by this desert region Nopal, it is low in nutrients, minerals and mucilage. The desert variety has large irritating spines and is generally a low quality producer and not a high quality fruit and vegetable producer.

We continue to strive to develop new cutting edge products and up till now we can offer you our Nopal powder, our fresh Nopal, Nopal juice concentrate, Nopal body lotion, Nopal shampoo, Nopal hair gel, Nopal facial mask and Nopal soap.

For over 12,000 years fresh Nopal cactus has been consumed for its legendary qualities. Only recently, in the last 20 years, has modern science truly been interested in the investigation of Nopal's nutritional properties.
Nopal is a rich source of dietary fiber, especially non-carbohydrate polysaccharides, such as pectin, mucilage, and hemicellulose.
Calcium is a major component of bones and teeth. It also is required for the clotting of blood to stop bleeding and for normal functioning of the nerves, muscles, and heart.
100 g of fresh leaves carry just 16 calories. Nonetheless, its modified leaves (paddles) have many vital phytochemicals, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can immensely benefit health.
Also, the juice extracted from the nopal has been suggested to have an immune booster and anti-inflammatory properties.
