Betacarotenes molecules extractions using acetic acid (99% of purity) as solvent followed by distillated water neutralization or hexane solvent to get back betacarotenes. To obtain pure betacarotenes molecules, distillation step is necessary for the second process which use hexane solvent; however for the first process which use distillated water neutralization, decantation step is enough. The first process is energetically profitable. Unrefined palm oil which contains betacarotenes molecules with triglycerides and grease acids is used as model product for betacarotenes extraction. Both of the two processes have extraction rate more than 27% which increases proportionally with the weight of unrefined palm oil used for extraction.
