CO2 Extraction Machines For Carotene
Carotene is an important natural pigment widely distributed in the field of plant, which has many health functions, such as anti-cancer, anticancer and enhancing immunity, and is widely used in food industry, drug industry and cosmetics industry.
The production sources of β-carotene mainly include extraction of Dunaliella salina, bio-fermentation, extraction of high plants, and the extraction of β-carotene from carrot is of great concern because of its abundant source, high yield and simple simplicity..
The extraction of carotene mostly adopts organic solvent method, but the method has some problems, such as excessive heavy metal, excessive organic residue, and different degree of pigment destruction. In recent years, some new extraction and separation techniques such as supercritical extraction and molecular distillation have improved the quality of the extracts. The supercritical CO2 extraction technology is widely used in the extraction of β-carotene because of its non-toxic, harmless, no residue and no pollution.
Processing pepper essential oil, black pepper essential oil, cumin oil, astaxanthin, lycopene, capsanthin, carotene, corn yellow pigment and other products, welcomed the consultation.
