Water-soluble terpenes have arrived

We’re proud to announce the launch of our water-soluble terpenes

How Do Water-Soluble Terpenes Work?

We’ve taken our all-natural botanical terpenes and run them through a proprietary emulsifying process using ultrasonic homogenization that allows terpenes to blend seamlessly with water-based products.

Terpenes are themselves an oil. As such, they only naturally blend or ‘solvate’ in alcohol or fats (oils) – never in water. You’ve seen this process at work anytime you’ve had to shake your favorite salad dressing in order to emulsify it, or have been at an Italian restaurant and noticed that the olive oil and balsamic for dipping your bread in have separated. That’s because oil and water are, generally speaking, immiscible, or un-mixible, liquids.

At Abstrax we’ve developed a work around for this by utilizing the power of sound waves (ultrasonic) to disperse terpenes in small pockets that are fairly evenly distributed (homogenized) throughout the solution (water, in our case). What this does is effectively open the doors for recipe experimentation! Terpenes that were previously only useful in oil-based applications will now  interact nicely with your alcohol and water-based innovations.

Why Can’t I Use Regular Terpenes for Cocktails?

Well, let’s make that visual, see below how our standard terpenes can’t dissolve in water, due to their oil-based nature. However, when water-soluble terpenes are added to water it becomes clear once mixed. Watch below why you can’t use regular terpenes in liquids, only for oil-based products.

What Do Water-Soluble Terpenes Do For My Products?

Water-soluble terpenes can round out the flavor of your product to a more full and rich profile. They also enhance the effect, giving it a kick that will come to define your brand. They also give you the ability to get creative in the kitchen, allowing you to bring out new flavors that are not possible without terpenes but require water-soluble terpenes, such as for cocktails. A healthy, natural, sugar-free alternative to artificial flavors or traditional juice.

What Can Water-Soluble Terpenes Be Used For?

This is the breakthrough to round out the flavors of your products and be more creative. Say goodbye to limited oil based flavors and hello to innovative water-based flavors to get your customers excited and set yourself apart from your competition.
