This high pressure extraction process enables the extraction of bioactive compounds with high yield, from a range of health food, including the Chinese medicinal Ganoderma lucidum spores breaking. This novel methodology enhances the extraction rate of bioactive compound by up to 200% compared to solvent extraction, and achieves Ganoderma lucidum spores breaking rate of up to 95%.
Conventional extraction methods are typically operated at high cost with low extraction yield, long processing time and low extraction purity. These extraction methods also bring adverse impact to the environment, such as producing large amount of chemical solvent. The health supplement industry has an increasing demand for a more effective extraction method to tackle the above issues.
