Filtration of Botanical Extracts

Xtract’s technology is utilised in the filtration of efficacious extracts from botanicals from across the world. These extracts are used in a widely diverse product range from pharmaceutical actives in human medicinal formulations to food flavours to animal healthcare products.

The control of micro-organisms in the finished products is of critical importance across the whole range but particularly the so-called ‘strong infusions’. This range of products features direct extraction of herbs and botanicals, used as flavours predominantly in drink formulations, and as such the criteria for microbial control is well defined with low limits.

Specific applications for Xtract's technology in the food flavour category are extracts such as:

  • Elderflower
  • Guarana
  • Ginseng (Korean and Siberian)
  • Green Tea
  • Ginkgo
  • Passiflora

These extracts can be either alcoholic or aqueous.
