Classical extraction methods

  • Extraction with benzene, alcohol, and dichloromethane
    Disadvantage: traces of benzene or dichloromethane in the extract

Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction

  • Consistent product quality of the extract
  • Prolonged shelf life of the extract
  • Greater independence from the world's crop quality by standardization of the extracts 

The supercritical process for hops extraction was commercialised very early, today more than 80 % of hop extracts are produced with SFE
