Code Information - Extract liquid


Extract liquid

A "liquid extract" is prepared either (a) by maceration or percolation of the herbal material with suitable solvent(s) and separation of the fluid fraction, often by straining or filtering or (b) by the addition of liquid diluents(s) to a soft or dry extract. In the first case, the liquid extract is usually concentrated to the desired strength by evaporating some of the solvent.
