Supercritical CO2


.

MAHALO uses many organic supercritical CO2 extracts in many of our products.

Supercritical CO2 method extracts herbal active substances, sensitive flavors and fragrances with a gentle, natural and clean method, safe for the environment. Carbon dioxide, the gas that gives all the freshness to sparkling drinks is the new and Generally Recognized As Save (GRAS) – approved solvent for lipophilic molecules. The high pressure process works without the stress of high temperatures and under exclusion of oxygen which allows for the purest preservation of the valuable and potent plant nectars. CO2-extracts offer the most authentic plant properties and natural flavor, a fresher fragrance and a superior activity.

The extraction process is certified for organic production according to the Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 and the USDA NOP standard.
