Supercritical fluid extraction is an efficient separation method, to separate active ingredients from plant material. Supercritical solvent extraction is one of the gentlest, most flexible, dynamic and nature friendly techniques used for the extraction of spices, herbs, and flowers using food grade CO2. These are the products extracted at ambient temperatures and at high pressures to avoid loss of aroma and degradation of actives. Apart from being solvent and residue free, supercritical fluid extraction is a green process, highly rated for its eco-friendliness. The low viscosity and high diffusivity of supercritical fluid enhances the penetrating power based on the high mass transfer of solutes into the fluid. Supercritical extraction using CO2 is considered organic compatible and widely used in the manufacturing of organic certified products.
Mane Kancor, with the global sourcing capabilities in various spices and herbs, with more than two decades of experience in CO2 extraction technology, gives a competitive edge over others with its wide range of products in this category.
