What functions do plant raw materials and extracts have and what is the difference between them?
Plant extracts have an influence on the various metabolic processes in the human body and in animals. Carotenoids, for example, promote good health in the case of age-related eye disorders.
Extracts are substances taken from plants, whereas plant products are normally subject to mechanical treatment.
It often takes only one or more processing steps from the original plant to the raw material, with carob powder, for example.
