Nigella Sativa Seed Extract Manufacturing Process
The manufacturing process of thymoquinone begins with the raw material, typically the black seed of the Nigella sativa plant. The seeds are then crushed and refined to remove impurities. The refined filtration process helps to purify the thymoquinone and increase its purity. Next, the thymoquinone is extracted using ethyl alcohol. This step helps to preserve the beneficial compounds in the thymoquinone. Finally, the thymoquinone is purified through a process of advanced filtration. This step ensures that the thymoquinone is of the highest quality and purity.
