Morristown, N.J. â€“ Kancor North America has introduced Oxikan with a full range of natural antioxidants derived from Rosemary.
The company says the range can increase the shelf life in products without the use of chemical ingredients and provide a natural solution to the growing shelf life challenge facing food and beverage manufacturers.
Rosemary is known to be a safe, health-enhancing food ingredient. And Kancor says it has identified three active properties in the rosemary molecules that inhibit oxidation.
Oxikan uses these molecules for an all-natural ingredient that offers multiple advantages in addition to shelf life extension, including stabilizing natural colours and fighting rancidity in oils, offering a superior flow, excellent oil miscibility and a mild rosemary flavour.
Oxikan comes in a full range of flavour profiles to suit multiple applications and is ideal for meat and poultry products.
