Utrasonic topic: "Ultrasonic production of extracts"
Extracts are substances, which have been released from a raw material via an extraction process. Ultrasonic extraction (also sono-extraction) is a highly efficient, rapid, safe, and user-friendly technique to extract bioactive compounds from botanicals such as herbs, seeds, fruits, vegetables, flowers, roots and bark. For the extraction process a solvent is required. One advantage of ultrasonic extraction is the broad selection of solvents to chose from: Ultrasonic extraction works with common solvents (e.g. ethanol, methanol, heptane, hexane etc.), but also very mild, green solvents such as water, vegetable oils, glycerine etc. are suitable for the ultrasonic extraction from many raw materials.
Extracts are available as tinctures, absolutes or in powder form. Extracts are often used in the food, pharma and nutraceutical industry, where extracts are used as flavour additives or as bioactive compounds with medicinal or nutritional effects.
