Spice oils are a treasure of nature. They are responsible for each of the unique aroma that characterizes spices, and they come with amazing industrial benefits as they can be standardized readily. Additionally, they are consistent and naturally hygienic. The most common method for spice oil extraction is steam distillation, which may have residual solvent. The quality of spice oils may differ depending on expected final utilization and the desired output, so a customized extraction process and method for spice oils is heavily advised in the field. Generally, spice oils are widely used in cooking, perfume additives, pharmaceutical and personal hygiene product components, as well as cosmetic applications.
Perhaps the most important substances found in spices are oleoresins. These are semi-solid resin extracts that contain the flavor concentrate of the spice. These substances come in both volatile and nonvolatile forms. Spice oleoresins are acquired through a solvent extraction process that requires the evaporation of a non-aqueous solvent, which is our spice oleoresins extraction machine do. Spice oleoresins, steady and aromatic, can effectively substitute every food seasoning.
