Use of pulsed electric field to extract valuable components from plant materialPlant extracts are the heart of modern cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, but are also widely used in food supplements, as food additives and generally in the food industry. The research for new techniques to extract important compounds from plants is one of the major goals of all industries involved (pharmaceutical, food, beverages, etc.). Until recently, the extraction of targeted ingredients (polyphenols, flavonoids, colorants, carotenoids, essential oils, etc.) from plant material required the use of high temperature and thus energy or large quantities of toxic organic solvents with a corresponding environmental burden and high cost of removal of their residues from the final product. As industrial demands are continuously increasing, new and more cost-effective methods are being introduced to optimize the extraction procedure.
