When flavors and fragances are extracted thanks to a supercritical carbon dioxide process, it presents a higher organoleptic quality. The extract is closer to the natural material and the is no residue of organic solvent which is very interesting in industries. It reduces post treatment steps and permits an easier process. Thanks to the various supercritical processes CO2 extracts can be obtains from many raw materials.
It is used for, among others:
- high-grade flavors of fragrances as Vanilla. SFEProcess has designed and manufactured a supercritical extraction system for Reunion Vanilla.
- Fractions of extracts impossible to obtain with classical processes (Pepper, Paprika, Ginger…)
- or without dangerous solvents ( Aroma of cognac, rhum or wisky for example).
SFE Process as expert in supercritical fluids technologies, developed an extraction and fractionation equipment to obtain higher quality extracts from solids or liquids stuffs for perfume and cosmetic industries.
