Product Code: QUEXT100-O

Introduction
Garuda International's Certified Organic Quillaja (quillaia) Extract Powder 100%, Food-Grade NP is an ingredient made from the concentrated purified extract of the outer cambium layer of the Quillaja Saponaria Molina tree, commonly identified as quillay bark, or soap bark, native to Chile. Certified Organic Quillaja Extract Powder is a perfect raw material for use in Organic foods, beverages, specialized confections, natural vegetable/fruit washes, soaps and shampoos.

Benefits
Quillaja (quillaia) is a natural GRAS (generally recognized as safe) food-grade surfactant/emulsifier ingredient (raw material) rich in saponins and sapogenins. Quillaia Extract Powder has been used for decades as an ingredient to create the foaming in beverages such as root beer, low-alcohol beers and foaming carbonated beverages and bar mixers. Quillaja extract powder raw material is an ingredient that can also be used to formulate household/commercial liquid soaps without artificial saponification of fats or vegetable oils. Quillaja raw material can be used anywhere a non-ionic surfactant can be used. Besides its common use for foaming in beverages, Garuda's Certified Organic Quillaja Extract contributes natural emulsification properties essential when combining functional fats or lipid-based flavors into aqueous solutions/beverages. Quillaja Extract can be used to wash vegetables, fruits and produce to more effectively remove soil, pesticides and microorganisms. The foaming characteristics of Garuda's Quillaja Extract can also be used to prepare fluffy and light halvah (halwa or halva) confections as a replacement for egg whites or other foamers.

Advantages
Garuda's Certified Organic Quillaja (quillaia) Extract Powder 100%, Food-Grade NP will not impart the color or taste that is common in many other commercially available quillaja extract raw materials. It is a carefully refined ingredient from sustainably harvested quillay trees. Also available as a conventional (not certified organic) extract. It has lower allergenicity because no fish by-products are used during processing.
