CO₂ is one of the few solvents that is GRAS (generally recognized as safe). We use it as a safe, non-toxic, and effective extraction medium. After extraction it evaporates completely, leaving behind pure extracts virtually identical to their natural origins. Because CO₂ technology is versatile and tunable we offer selective extraction, isolation and separation of specific compounds. Due to the extracts’ improved quality, one of the main benefits is that less of the ingredient needs to be added to the end product, to achieve the same or even better result.
Many natural compounds are sensitive to light, oxidation and/or heat. FeyeCon protects these valuable ingredients by transforming them into stable powders. Additionally, we use CO₂ (micro-) encapsulation technology to coat actives, preventing them from degradation. Our tailor-made coatings ensure that powders are stable in both aqueous and non-aqueous formulations. Our technology provides 100% yield, meaning no losses of valuable active ingredients during processing.
