Solubility: Very limited water solubility so this powder is best added to your formula after infusing it in water and filtering it. The resulting extract will have a low colour and odour, taking on a light yellow colouration.
Production Process: Air drying of the whole fruit.
Use Levels: 0.5-20% as supplied into your product after filtration. To create a tincture we suggest adding 20g extract to 80g warm water and letting it steep like you would a cup of tea. The resulting mixture is filtered once the colour of the liquid stops darkening and that liquid can then be added into your product. 0.5% of the liquid tincture is the equivalent to 0.1% of the dried powder while 20% of the liquid tincture made as per the above is equivalent to 4%
Heat Tolerance: Low due to the vitamin C
