Hilltech has a wide range of Pure Essential Oils meeting FCC/USP specifications. They are used throughout the food industry as flavoring agents, for aromatherapy, in perfumes and fragrances and in other pharmaceutical products for flavor or antibacterial properties.
These highly purified oils are the volatile components extracted from a wide variety of spices, as seeds, root, stems, bark, leaves, buds, flowers or fruits of plants.
These Volatile Oils are produced through a steam distillation process which vaporizes the volatile components of the oils and then condenses this vapor to a liquid. They are also produced by cold pressing or expression. The essential oils are obtained from the peel by rasping or grating the fruit.
Essential Oils provide aroma and immediate release of flavor. They are very popular in the candy/confectionary and pickling industry and used extensively in the flavor industry where they are often spray dried. They are very stable in alcohol and are used by distilleries.
Hilltech can also custom blend a mixture of oils with other natural extract or aroma chemical to your specific needs or create a unique flavor for your products. We can also adjust the concentration level as needed using a fixed oil e.g. soya, canola, etc.. or render the formulation oil or water soluble.
