Rosemary Ingredient Naturally Extends Shelf Life

MORRISTOWN, N.J.Kancor North America launched Oxikana full range of natural antioxidants derived from rosemary to increase shelf life in products without the use of chemical ingredients. 

Kancor has identified three active properties in the rosemary molecules that inhibit oxidation, which are used in Oxikan to improve shelf life, while also stabilizing natural colors, fighting rancidity in oils, and providing superior flow and oil miscibility.

Oxikan comes in a full range of flavor profiles to suit multiple applications, and has proven effects in meat and poultry applications. The Thiobarbituric Acid Reactives Substances (TBARS) analysis method tested ground chicken and buffalo patties treated with Oxikan for lipid oxidation, which showed lower oxidation levels than untreated samples.
