I have a steam distillation setup with the flask for boiling the açaí powder with distilled water. Are you able to extract the essential oil from the boiling material?
Açaí oil is obtained by cold pressing. Steam distillation may be able to extract compounds like vanillic acid but may not get the anthocyanins or the triglycerides. Many of the health benefits are from the healthy triglycerides and the anthocyanins.
