Supercritical extraction

Is a sophisticated method of extracting bio-actives where the extracts retain biological activity.

Benefits of supercritical extraction:

  • High extract yield

  • Heat sensitive materials are gently treated

  • Extracts and residues are solvent free; making them both saleable unlike other solvent extracts

  • Selective extraction and fractionation of extracts is possible

  • Extraction solvents are recycled within the plant

  • De-selection of heavy metals

Pharmalink have developed a proprietary process to enrich liquid extracts.

 

Food grade Co-solvent extraction

Additional benefits of co-solvent extraction:

  • Increases extract yield from raw materials that contain polar lipids or with compounds with low solubility.  This is a great benefit for raw materials that contain phospholipids

  • Different fractions of polar and non-polar lipids can be separated in this process
