Summary

Natural products extraction is well established in food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industry with fast growing rates. The production chain starts with agriculture, followed by crude extraction and purification. In order to obtain highest yields all three steps are discussed and as an example the separation of oleanoic and unsolic acid from sage has been given. A special focus is on solvent regulations with edibles and other foods.
