Author(s): Sontakke MD, Syed HM and Sawate AR
Abstract: This investigation aims to study physicochemical composition and Extraction technology of Essential oil from Cardamom and Cinnamon. Different physicochemical properties viz., moisture, fat, protein, carbohydrates and ash were evaluated. The Extraction of Essential oil from Cardamom and Cinnamon was carried out by using two methods Viz., solvent extraction and steam distillation methods. It was observed that yield of cardamom essential oil by solvent extraction was high (7.3%) whereas cinnamon had (4.2%) whereas the extraction yield by steam distillation was 2.6% and 1.8% for cardamom and cinnamon respectively. It can be revealed that extraction of essential by solvent extraction method had high extraction yield compared to steam distillation method.
