Production methods

With goose (chicken bile) from the process of bile acid deoxidizing goose chicken bile, goose by NaOH to digest, hydrolysis acidification have total bile, HCI with degrease gasoline, ethanol defatted to acid deoxidizing goose was in ethanol and barium chloride into salt to BeiYan acid deoxidizing goose with ethyl acetate and barium must pass off HCI crystallization of ethyl acetate washing dry to acid deoxidizing goose. The total yield of chicken bile (or goose 1.92%).
