Oxidation and development of rancidity is a major challenge for food manufacturers, reducing shelf-life and altering the quality and nutritional value of their products. Consumers’ interest in natural antioxidants has increased dramatically over the past years and the general trend requires the substitution of synthetic molecules (e.g. erythrobates, BHA, TBHQ, BHT, propyl gallate, and Sodium nitrite) with natural compounds.

 

Guardox™ AE is a natural acerola cherry extract rich in vitamin C and is used as an antioxidant flavouring for preventing lipid oxidation in fresh ground beef and pork.
