Lemon Essential Oil consists of more than 90% terpenes which have very little flavour value. Their insolubility in alcohol is a nuisance in flavour compounding. With our Five Fold system distillation, most of the terpene fractions of Lemon Oil can be removed. Therefore, Lemon Oil 5 Fold is soluble in ethyl alcohol and paraffin alcohol, water and propylene glycol. It has no explosive or oxidizing properties and it is 5 times more concentrated than Lemon Essential Oil.
This type of oil has a light yellow colour, its aroma is the typical of fresh lemons, and it has a clear mobile liquid aspect. Lemon Oil 5 Fold is obtained from the peel of fruits of different varieties of Citrus Limon by Supercritical Fluid Extraction and Chromatography. This technology uses CO2 in supercritical condition as a solving agent, and through it we obtain pesticides, fungicides and heavy metal-free products without any solvent residue trace. This product does not contain preservatives, essences or colour, as is produced according to G.M.P. requirements. It is also alcohol-free. The Lemon Oil 5 Fold is stabilized in a Nitrogen atmosphere and packed in special containers. A chilled storage between 4 and 10 degrees Celsius is recommended for this product to preserve its properties and quality.
