Supercritical Fluid Extraction of Nutraceuticals and Bioactive Compounds
edited by Jose L. Martinez

Supercritical Fluid Extraction of Nutraceuticals and Bioactive Compounds presents the state-of-the-science in the extraction and fractionation of bioactive ingredients by supercritical fluids.

Focusing on implemented industrial processes and trends, the book covers the fundamentals of the technology and examines the economics of supercritical fluid extraction systems and processes.

The book presents the supercritical fluid extraction processes in:

  • edible oils, including fish oils and specialty oils
  • herbs, such as Latin American plants and those used in Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • algae
  • spices
  • antioxidants and essential oils

It also covers the processing of micro and nano-scale materials by supercritical fluid technology.

Each chapter covers the major active components in the target material, including:

  • chemical, physical, nutritional, and pharmaceutical properties
  • an analysis of the specific supercritical fluid process used
  • a comparison of traditional processing methods versus supercritical fluid technology
  • a set of conclusions with supporting data and insight

Features:

  • Focuses on the extraction, fractionation, and purification of nutraceuticals and bioactive compounds using supercritical fluids extraction
  • Reviews the chemical, physical, nutritional, and pharmaceutical properties of the major bioactive components
  • Compiles extensive data on the extraction and fractionation of specific compounds using supercritical fluid technology
  • Examines process parameters and comparative data- and quality-yields using supercritical fluid technology versus traditional processing methods
  • Describes the design and selection of the most critical equipment for a supercritical fluid processing plant
