I. Overview of plant extracts Plant extracts use plants as raw materials, and undergo physical, chemical extraction, and separation processes to obtain and concentrate one or more active ingredients in plants without changing Its active ingredient structure, the final product formed. According to the composition, plant extracts can be classified into categories such as alfalfa, acid, polyphenol, polysaccharide, anthraquinones, flavonoids, and alkaloids; according to different product properties, they can be classified into vegetable oils, extracts, powders, and crystals.

Plant extracts are abundant and diverse. At present, over 300 kinds of industrial extracts have been introduced. It is a very important type of intermediate product with a wide range of applications. It can be used for pharmaceutical raw materials, but also for health products, nutritional supplements, food additives. , cosmetics and other industries.

Second, the development process of plant extracts industry In the early 1980s, developed countries such as Europe and the United States that basically completed industrialization set off a trend of returning to nature, and people’s attention and degree of reliance on chemical synthetic products with side effects gradually increased, and it was natural and safe. The plant extracts have a good feeling of return and are highly respected, and the industry should rise. In 1994, the United States promulgated the "Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act," which formally recognized the acceptance of plant extracts as a food supplement and the rapid development of the plant extracts industry.

China has a long history of Chinese medicine, and medical personnel have always attached importance to the analysis of the traits and medicinal properties of plants. By the 1970s, some domestic pharmaceutical factories began to use mechanical equipment to extract plant constituents. However, this was only used as a production link in pharmaceutical manufacturing and did not develop into an independent industry. After the mid-1990s, as the degree of opening up to the outside world deepened, foreign trade began to thrive and the plant extracts industry, which was less subject to policy restrictions, began to develop.

Since the 21st century, the plant extract industry has entered a golden period. On the one hand, the improvement in living standards and the increase in health awareness have led to a strong demand for plant extract products; on the other hand, it has benefited from more advanced plant extraction technologies (eg enzymatic extraction, ultrasonic extraction, supercritical extraction, Applications such as microwave extraction and membrane separation technologies have greatly improved production efficiency.
