Turmeric oil extracted by the Co2 extraction process is top quality oil with the use of a solvent, called liquid carbon dioxide. High pressure and low temperatures are used to convert carbon dioxide to liquid resulting in an effective and safe solvent. Without any heat degradation risk, it can be safely collected. Co2 is then allowed to return to its gaseous and natural state thus leaving behind the plants extracted essence. In this extraction method Co2 selects and Co2 totals are the two oils obtained.
In the SCFE-Super Critical Fluid Extraction process, a solvent is used above its critical temperature and pressure. It helps in improving turmeric oil extract quality. It contains active components in high concentration, with no residual solvent and microbial or biological contaminants. Synergistic bio-activity of molecules is preserved.
Tumeric oil extracted from the rhizome or the root contains compounds that are oil friendly and has many amazing properties to promote health. It has a woody, earthy, warm, strong and spicy aroma. Turmeric oil is a certified organic oil obtained from the rhizome by Co2 extraction. It comes from the zingiberaceae botanical family, and the sesquiterpenes and ketones chemical family.
It contains rare compounds and around 400-500 molecules of different kinds namely, zingeriberene, sesquiterpene, other sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, cineol, d-a-phellandrene, d-sabinene, valeric acid and d-borneol which have receptor sites in neuroendocrine systems of the human body.
