What is it?
Phytonext is a novel extraction technology that is particularly suited for selective extraction of phytochemicals from natural material. The technology is a milder replacement for the toxic hexane and acetone that are currently used in the food industry. Many of the extracted phytochemicals have functional properties that can substitute synthetic chemicals that are currently in use. These phytochemicals can thus provide natural solutions for the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Lab scale extraction with this novel method has been described in scientific literature for years. With the rising ‘clean label’ trend in the food industry, TOP decided to invest in and develop the scale-up of this promising technology. The resulting company Phytonext is an example of the Clean label food trend.
