Supercritical CO2 extraction of black pepper oil

CO2 extract black pepper oil

Black pepper essential oil

Black pepper mainly contains piperine, piperine, piperine, and volatile oil components (such as phellandrene, caryophyllene, β-pinene, carene, piperine, α-water anise terpene, lemon terpene, linalool, pepper Aldehydes, etc.), so it has a strong aroma and pungent spicy taste and is a kind of spice that people love today.

Recent studies have shown that pepper is active in many aspects such as analgesia, sedation, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, insecticidal and anti-cancer.

Black pepper essential oil and black pepper oleoresin are the main deep-processed products of black pepper.

Black pepper oleoresin has anti-corrosion and anti-oxidation effects and is an important additive in the food industry.

Black Pepper Oil CO2 Extraction Process

The extraction of black pepper oleoresin is mostly based on solvent extraction, supplemented by ultrasonic and microwave. Among them, although the solvent extraction method has a large amount of treatment, it has the disadvantages of a large amount of solvent, long extraction time, destruction of active ingredients, and residual organic solvents.

Supercritical CO2 extraction is usually carried out at low temperatures, which can effectively prevent the oxidation and dissipation of heat-sensitive components; CO2 is a gas under normal conditions, non-toxic, and the extracted components are easily removed after separation, and there is no solvent residue at all, which effectively solves traditional extraction. The problem of solvent residue in the method and low product aroma quality.

Supercritical CO2 has gradually become an effective and widely used technology in extracting essential oils and oleoresin from natural products. Supercritical has been regarded as an effective extraction method that can replace traditional solvent extraction and molecular distillation techniques.

The CO2 extraction method for black pepper oil

Black pepper → drying and crushing → sieving (20 mesh) → installing in the extractor → controlling CO2 flow → setting pressure, temperature and time → collecting essential oil.

The optimization CO2 extraction process for black pepper essential oil

Black pepper particle size 20 mesh, CO2 flow rate 22kg/h, extraction pressure 34MPa, extraction time 140min, extraction temperature 38℃, under these conditions, the yield of black pepper essential oil is 7.02%.
