Solvent-free approach to high quality extraction
The analytical procedure for flavors and fragrances extraction from plants or spices comprises two steps: extraction by steam distillation or hydro-distillation, and analysis by GC or GC-MS. While the analysis step requires just few minutes, extraction takes several hours, using a standard procedure based on the Clevenger (1928 year!).
To address these limitations, Milestone has developed the new ETHOS X for the solvent-less extraction of natural products. ETHOS X utilizes a unique microwave selective heating mechanism. The internal water within the sample absorbs microwaves and heats up, distending the sample's cells and rupturing the glands and oleiferous receptacles. This process evaporates the in-situ water within the plant material to quickly extract the desired oils
