How we do it

At our Florida plant, we create clear aqueous distillates, or Treattaromes, from a range of different fruits, vegetables, teas and coffees. In the video below, you’ll see whole pineapples being washed, pressed and run through our proprietary distillation technology to extract the real food flavours in the form of an essence.

This aqueous solution is then used by formulators in anything from a smoothie to a moisturiser and everything in between.

We also expertly process extracted oil. Orange oil is delivered to us by the tanker load. We then use our expertise to distil the oil to extract various fractions, which are then sold as separate ingredients (such as Terpenes, used in numerous cleaning products) or combined to create unique ingredient solutions specific to customer needs.

The video shows our Pineapple Treattarome® being produced at Treatt USA.
