Colour-free, scent-free rosemary extract

Kancor Ingredients Limited offers its OxiKan CL rosemary extract to help extend shelf life

Kancor Ingredients Limited offers its new anti-oxidant OxiKan CL.

The company says the ingredient “is a major breakthrough in the field of natural extracts that help prolong shelf life.”

OxiKan CL is a fully de-colourized and de-odourized extract of rosemary.

For many manufacturers using rosemary extract to extend the shelf life of a product poses the challenge of aroma and colour.


But OxiKan CL has had “unwanted molecules such as chlorophyll, carotenoids, xanthophylls and other less oil soluble non-anti-oxidant molecules” removed, says the company.
