Quillaja Extract Powder is a natural emulsifier, foaming agent and non-ionic natural surfactant for agricultural and soil amendment applications. The extracted powder contains a minimum of 20% saponins (that provides the surfactant properties).
Mix 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water as a wetting agent along with whatever nutrient / amendment you are going to foliar spray or soil drench. The saponins in the quillaja powder act as a surfactant, allowing the spray to stay on the leaves longer, rather than running off.
Quillaja extract powder 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.
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.
Quillaja Extract Powder has a shelf life in excess of two years without loss of foaming ability or product integrity.
It is a carefully refined ingredient from sustainably harvested Quillay trees.
