Food Antioxidant Solution

Food Antioxidant Solution

Oxidative deterioration of food has always been one of the concerns of the food industry and consumers. How to effectively improve food oxidation and develop new and safe food antioxidants has gradually become the focus of research. Aprofood deeply explores the mechanism of food oxidation and is committed to providing comprehensive food antioxidation solutions to customers around the world.

Why Foods Need Antioxidants?

Why Foods Need Antioxidants?

Oxidation reactions occur not only in the human body, but also in some foods. It will not only reduce the nutritional value of food, but also lead to food spoilage. Therefore, antioxidants are one of the important ways in food preservation strategies.

For example, high-fat foods such as edible oils and nuts often produce a savory taste due to oxidation, which is the "masterpiece" of oxidation. In addition, when fruits and vegetables are subjected to some mechanical damage, browning will also occur due to oxidative reactions, and at the same time, it is also accompanied by the loss of nutrients such as vitamins, carotenoids, and anthocyanins.

What Are Food Antioxidants?

Food antioxidants are a class of food additives that prevent or delay the oxidative deterioration of food, improve food stability, and prolong food storage period. According to their source is divided into:

Propyl Gallate (PG)

Chemically Synthesized Food Antioxidants
Common butyl hydroxyanisole (BHA), dibutyl hydroxytoluene (BHT), propyl gallate (PG), tert-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), ascorbyl palmitate (AP), etc. are all chemical Synthetic antioxidants, they can be used alone or in combination with synergists such as citric acid and phosphoric acid to enhance the antioxidant effect.

Rosemary Extracts

Natural Food Antioxidants
Natural antioxidants are extracted from food, such as vitamin C and vitamin E in vegetables, tea polyphenols in tea, licorice antioxidants in licorice, rosemary extract, and phytic acid in some plant seeds. They can not only provide essential nutrients for the human body, but also extract them to become important food additives in the food industry.

Of course, the use of natural or synthetic food antioxidants must be strictly in accordance with relevant national standards.
