The PhytoClean Method water-based extraction process concentrates bioactives by pressurizing water at moderate temperatures; this greatly increases the water’s ability to solubilize bioactive compounds. In effect, this extraction process generally provides better yields and purities than industrial solvents. This environmentally friendly, clean process can be applied to extract a wide range of compounds for use in nutraceuticals, cosmetics, flavorings, colorings, pharmaceuticals, functional foods, and beverages.
“This is a significant milestone for Mazza, as Life Extension’s Mediterranean Whole Food Blend is the first product on the market to carry the PhytoClean seal on the label to meet its solvent-free and clean-label standard,” said Mazza Innovation President Benjamin Lightburn. “We’re pleased to have worked with Life Extension on this exciting quality advance.”
“Life Extension has been committed for more than 35 years to producing the highest-quality supplements, and this starts with using only the best ingredients,” said Andrew Swick, PhD, senior vice president of product development and scientific affairs at Life Extension. “Mazza’s PhytoClean extraction process uses only water and this ensures that Life Extension’s Mediterranean Whole Food Blend has superior ingredients without unnecessary additives.”
