Oleoresins are spice extracts, obtained by solvent extraction of respected spices. This is followed by the standardisation of the active ingredients which gives the typical flavour, colour and aroma to a particular spice. The advantages of using Oleoresins over natural spices are consistency in quality, reduced dosage, increased shelf life due to no bacterial contamination and easy standardisation.

Roasted Oleoresins

AKAY has introduced a range of ‘roasted spice flavours’. For this, selected quality spices are roasted at defined conditions of temperature and pressure to develop unique aroma. These are then solvent extracted to make Roasted Oleoresins. Akay offers free-flowing Oleoresins with roasted flavour/aroma profiles in both water-soluble and oil-soluble forms. Our range includes, but is not limited to:

Essential Oils

Essential Oils are the volatile components of a spice or herb, obtained by steam distillation. We have a state-of-the-art steam distillation unit, which produces the highest quality of pure, natural essential oils. We produce a wide range of these including:

Encapsulated Oils and Oleoresins

We also offer a wide range of encapsulated oleoresins and oils. Encapsulation is the process of protecting the active compounds of food during storage and processing. Akay offers stable, free-flowing, water- soluble powders with customized oil loading. This helps in the easy dispersion and blending of the powders into various food matrices without any leaching issues. The powders have extended shelf life with ease of handling & usage.
