Spice Extraction: Getting the most out of Spices.

Why Spices?

Herbs and spices are very powerful ingredients for cooking or even health. They also provide powerful health benefits like antioxidants, vitamins, and health compounds.

As consumer preference shifts towards products with natural ingredients and organic flavors, spice extraction will become a viable solution to meet the increasing demand for spices across the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and personal care industries.

The Extraction Advantage

Oleoresins are concentrated natural extracts with active compounds from plants, spices and herbs. These are 5-20 times stronger in flavor than their corresponding spices. During their extraction, fewer low flavor notes are destroyed as opposed to during steam distillation of essential oils.

Moreover, oleoresin oils contain some important flavor notes which are absent in volatile oils. For instance, while black pepper oil contains just the top black pepper notes, its oleoresin contains piperine and other low flavor notes, making it a more effective flavoring agent. Oleoresins are used at 0.1-0.5% in finished products.

Consequently, food and spices companies are inclining towards oleoresin production, thus heightening market growth prospects in the forthcoming decade's forecast period.

Requirements in Extraction

  • Lower adulteration in extraction process.
  • The extracted solvent should have higher bioactive and lower residues.
  • The output should be chemical free.
  • Multiple recipe selection.
  • Clean, safe and Green Technology.
  • Robust process and monitor controlling.
  • Operational safety.
  • Minimal human intervention.
