Our main products for contract extraction are:
Hops - Aroma and bitterness in the brew house!
The bittering and flavoring components of hops are important for the brewing process. Using supercritical CO2 these components are recovered and concentrated to a viscous extract which features long shelf-life, simplified logistical properties and easy dosing for the brew master.
Cocoa - Defatted powder and pure butter!
Cocoa cake is defatted at NATECO2 using supercritical CO2. Due to the absence of organic solvents, the defatted cake as well as the cocoa butter can readily be used as additives in diet food and in cosmetic products.
Saw Palmetto Berries - High-valuable oils out of US-berries!
The berry of the saw palmetto palm from Florida is a specialty for men’s health: Its high content of phytosterols and free fatty acids is believed to reduce the risk of prostatic hyperplasia. By extracting the berries using CO2 in an oxygen free atmosphere, the active components are concentrated in the oil ready for use as additives in nutraceuticals.
Carotenoids - Concentrated at ultra-high-pressure!
Most carotenoids are highly sensitive to oxidation. Additionally the extraction of carotenoids only becomes economical at pressures higher than 600 bar. Consequently the ultra-high pressure plants at NATECO2 are optimised for the CO2-extraction of sensitive molecules in the absence of oxygen. Materials like algae, marigold or paprika are already extracted on a large scale at NATECO2.
Xanthohumol - Precious polyphenols from hops!
Xanthohumol is a polyphenol in hops which possesses anticarcinogenic properties. With a special patent protected technology NATECO2 concentrates the valuable ingredient and extracts ready for pharmaceutical or nutraceutical applications are gained.
