Oxidation Control

Antioxidants for Rendering Processes

At Kemin, we understand that an ingredient quality assurance plan must address your entire manufacturing process, from raw material quality to finished product stability. A successful program requires selection of the right natural or synthetic antioxidants, the technical expertise, and product application support needed to ensure your objectives are met.

Natural Antioxidants




Natural Antioxidants for Rendering Stability

Successful formulation with natural antioxidants demands a thorough understanding of how processing impacts the quality and stability of a rendered protein meal and fat. Selecting the right antioxidant at the right dosage level is key to achieving desired targets. For over 25 years, Kemin has led the way in developing natural antioxidant formulations that satisfy customer expectations as consumer needs have changed.




Synthetic Antioxidants

Synthetic Antioxidants for Maximum Protection from Oxidation

There are several synthetic antioxidant options available to control free radical chain reactions in the rendering manufacturing processes. These include Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), Tertiary butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), Ethoxyquin (EQ), and Propyl gallate (PG). Kemin understands that the effectiveness of these antioxidants can be impacted by many things, including the manufacturing process and by the kind of ingredients that are being stabilized. You can be confident that our diverse portfolio of synthetic antioxidant formulations provides maximum protection from oxidation.
