Visit our booth and taste the difference for yourself. Prior to 1980 the herbal industry standard process was primarily reliant on an alcohol base for extracting oils from raw herbs. L. Carl Robinson determined that a liquid delivery of herbs was far more efficient than what dried herbal products were capable of, however, he asked two questions, “Why is alcohol still the primary solvent used for liquid herbal tinctures/extracts in the liquid herbal products industry?” And, “Why are the process methodologies used for tincturing herbs so antiquated and not current to known science proven concepts?” Carl recalled in his chemistry studies that alcohol (i.e. grain based ethanol) possess the intrinsic effects of denaturing and rendering inert many organic compounds that are present in herbs. Alternate methodologies are required to effectively retain the intrinsic biological nature of different compounds while extracting them from a raw material. From these considerations Carl developed a multi-step process that utilizes the non-alcohol solvent glycerin for making liquid herbal concentrates. He named this unique technology the TincTract® process. The TincTract® process is geared towards extracting heat sensitive water soluble compounds and critical heat required compounds and many non-water soluble compounds requiring a super-critical/clarifying step– all in one multi-step process! A multi-step liquid processing approach had never been done in the liquid herbal products industry. The TincTract® process still holds the distinction of being the most thorough liquid herbal extraction technology in the herbal products industry.
