A note on CO2 Extraction: Hypercritical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Extractions were developed for the flavor industry using liquid CO2, a harmless solvent, and offer a quality that is different than essential oils. CO2 extraction produces interesting extracts that are less volatile than essential oils and embody a fuller spectrum of the raw material. Turmeric, for example, yields a CO2 extract that smells very close to the aroma of fresh grated turmeric root and exhibiting more of turmeric's rich vibrant orange color. Compared to absolutes, CO2 extracts are lighter and do not contain any traces of solvents making them more suitable for aromatherapy and flavoring purposes.
