NaturFORT is a versatile combination consisting of rosemary and green tea extracts that complement each other. They provide superior protection with a positive impact on flavor, color and odor. The blends are highly efficacious in sauces, dressings and condiments as well as in meat and poultry products.
The combination of rosemary and green tea extracts provide many advantages over single-ingredient antioxidant solutions:
- The combination of water and oil soluble ingredients gives a stronger protection of the entire food matrix.
- Due to milder, more balanced flavor characteristics of the blend higher application rates can be used compared to single ingredients. For example, the addition of high levels of rosemary extract or green tea extract alone may negatively affect the flavor profile of meat.
- The catechins in green tea extract are known for their potential to act as an iron chelator, suppressing the pro-oxidant iron that can be released from the hemoglobin during the production of ground meat.
