Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) -  Antimicrobial

How is grapefruit seed extract (GSE) made and what are its active components?

How is GSE made and what are its active components?

More than a simple extract.    GSE is synthesized from the polyphenol (flavonoid) compounds in grapefruit seeds and pulp left over from grapefruit juice production:

•  Grapefruit pulp and seed is dried and ground into a fine powder.

•  The powder is dissolved in purified water and distilled to remove the fiber and pectin.

•  The distilled slurry is spray dried at low temperatures forming a concentrated flavonoid powder.

•  This concentrated powder is dissolved in vegetable glycerine and heated.

•  Food grade ammonium chloride and ascorbic acid are added, and this mixture is heated under pressure. The amount of ammonium chloride remaining in finished Citricidal is 15-19%; the amount of ascorbic acid remaining is 2.5-3.0%.

•  The ammoniated mixture undergoes catalytic conversion using natural catalysts, including hydrochloric acid and natural enzymes. There is no residue of hydrochloric acid after the reaction.

•   The slurry is cooled, filtered, and treated with ultraviolet light.

The main active components of Citricidal®.     A group of quaternary ammonium chlorides formed by the ammoniation process, including benzethonium chloride or a compound nearly identical to it, comprising 7-18% of the product, when analyzed in accordance with USP XXII/NF XVII (United States Pharmacopeia and National Formulary standards). Richard Perry, Managing director of Citricidal said in an interview: “The difference is our product has an oxygen and carbon bond that is different than that of benzethonium. Our product also has an LD50 of over 5000 mg/kg of live body weight. That means that an average weight human would have to consume a quart of Citricidal® daily before there would be a 50% chance of death as a result. Our product is used by the drop. "
