So I made a banana peel extract. Here is the procedure.
I boiled distilled water and put in a container along with the banana peels.
I let the containter cool down and after that I homogenized the mixture.
Then I filtered the slurry and put it back in the container.
Then I let the liquid turn from yellow into black-ish.
After that, I'm having a dilemma.
According to one study, the liquid must be filtered again but according to another, the liquid is just as it is. However, I proceeded by filtering the liquid again.
When I filtered it, the liquid turned from black-ish to opaque.
My question is Will the opaque liquid still contain the extract?
I need the antioxidant in the extract.
Will the filtered extract just have no color but it will still have all the antioxidants?
