Ceratonia siliqua

Biosearch life provides a line of Exxentia® Innovation extracts originating from the carob tree in order to concentrate and enhance the beneficial properties of this plant.

The carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua), is an emblematic tree on the Mediterranean landscape and belongs to the legume family, which has been cultivated since ancient times. The fruit of the carob tree is an edible dark brown, elongated and curved bean. It contains seeds and pulp that hold different phytonutrients.

Spain is the leading producer of European Carob, where there are over 100 genetically unmodified (non-GMO), natural varieties.

Biosearch Life has a manufacturing facility in Peñafiel, in north-western Spain, exclusively dedicated to natural plant 100% water extraction, without the use of any other solvents. At this manufacturing facility, Biosearch Life manufactures 3 extracts naturally from the carob tree, the effectiveness of which has been guaranteed through clinical trials and some are protected by patent.
