Abstract How to extract bioactive compounds safely and efficiently is one of the problems for food and pharmaceutical industry. In recent years, several novel extraction techniques have been proposed. To pursuit more efficient method for industrial production, high intensity pulsed electric field (HIPEF) extraction technique has been developed. HIPEF extraction technique, which is based on the conventional pulsed electric field (PEF), provided higher electric field intensity and special continuous extraction system, has been confirmed less extraction time, higher extraction yield, and mild processing temperature. So this innovative technique is promising for application of industrial production. This review was devoted to introduce the recent achievement of HIPEF extraction technique, including novel HIPEF continuous extraction system, principles and mechanisms, the critical process factors influencing its performance, applications and comparison of HIPEF extraction with other extraction techniques. In the end, the defects and future trends of HIPEF extraction were also discussed.
