Abstract:

The Supercritical Fluid extraction is also considered as a novel technology for extracting soluble products into a fluid from a wide range of materials using supercritical conditions of solvents. Bioactive compounds are secondary metabolites produced from a broad diversity of structures and functionalities. In the present article the potential bioresources mainly from agriculture and allied sectors have been reviewed which constitutes excellent pools for bioactive and nutraceutical compounds. These natural compounds play an important role in enhancing health, improving immunity, maintaining well being and thereby preventing as well as treating specific diseases. The present generation which is more proactive in identifying the intake of healthy food is also cautious about its processing technologies involved in it. The use of conventional solvents, thermally decomposing and unsustainable technologies in the food, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical industries have created marketing concern for their products. Hence there is a need for cutting edge technology which can overcome these legal limitations. Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) is the process of separating one component (the matrix) from another (the extractant) using supercritical fluids. The properties of the fluid (liquid and gases), under supercritical conditions, are used to extract most complex compounds. CO2 is nontoxic, inexpensive and non-flammable could be applied as a replacement for conventional solvents in an extractive process using supercritical fluid extraction process. The present paper reviews the basics of supercritical extraction technology and extraction of bioactive compounds from various agricultural and bio-resources.
