This product has a yellow color because it is a pray-dried whole plant extract. We also have a freeze-dried deep red Hibiscus Extract that is made from the flowers exclusively.
This is an extract of Hibiscus made by cold water extraction of our hibiscus powder that is then filtered, spray-dried, and milled to a uniform powder. Spray drying is the most common method of producing botanical extracts because it is cost-effective. We also offer this extract in a freeze-dried version which is a higher quality and more expensive option.
