Mazza Innovation introduces toll-drying service and more than doubles extraction capability through a facility expansion


Company is expanding in response to growing market acceptance and demand for its PhytoClean™ solvent-free, pressurized water processing method for extracting botanical ingredients, as well as its drying expertise


Vancouver, Canada (September 12, 2017) — Mazza Innovation Ltd. is pleased to announce that it is introducing toll-drying services for its customers’ extracts, and more than doubling its extraction capabilities through the construction of a second extractor processing unit. Customers have been requesting toll-drying services from Mazza’s experienced ingredient processing team for some time now, and the company has decided to add this specialized expertise to its business offerings. The new service will complement the expanded processing capability delivered by the second extractor.


“Mazza’s expertise in extraction and specialized drying, as well as handling of those ingredients, is increasingly being recognized by the marketplace, so it’s useful for us to offer this service to customers who have their own liquid ingredients that need to be dried and prepared for market,” explains Mazza Innovation CEO Benjamin Lightburn. “Having a second extractor processing unit more than doubles our production capability, enabling us to meet rising demand for both extracted ingredients and customer research. Combined with the toll-drying service, we’re now able to fulfill larger orders and meet specialized customer needs. We look forward to meeting with our clients and research partners at our exhibit booth PP-173 at the Supply Side West tradeshow September 25–29.”


Mazza is working with a number of leading companies, among them Naturex, which has exclusively contracted Mazza’s award-winning cranberry extract production, and Chromadex, which is partnering in the expanded use of the PhytoClean™ Method.  In addition, working with supplement leader Life Extension, Mazza recently released the first-ever retail product made using its proprietary solvent-free PhytoClean™ Method. Life Extension’s Mediterranean Whole Food Blend is now available and carries the PhytoClean™ seal on the label to confirm that a broad spectrum of natural bioactives have been extracted using Mazza’s solvent-free pressurized-water PhytoClean™ extraction technology.


About the PhytoClean™ Method

The PhytoClean™ Method water-based extraction process concentrates bioactives by pressurizing water at moderate temperatures; this greatly increases the water’s ability to solubilize bioactive compounds. In effect, this extraction process provides better yields and purities than chemical solvents. This environmentally friendly, clean process can be applied to extract a wide range of compounds for use in nutraceuticals, cosmetics, flavourings, colourings, pharmaceuticals, and functional foods and beverages.
