Fortium A

FORTIUM® A - Natural Acerola Extract to Preserve Colour

Natural plant extract rich in Vitamin C developed to preserve colour for meat products.

Acerola cherry powder, an extract which contains high levels of natural ascorbic acid, assures the colour of various food products. Acerola extract is the standard in the meat sector for its ability to speed up the curing process along with nitrites.

Straight acerola extract safeguards the organoleptic and nutritional qualities of products. It is an excellent consumer friendly option for meat manufacturers for keeping a bright, fresh meat colour.


Acerola extract is effective at delaying lipid oxidation of the iron present in the myoglobin, the red pigment in meat. Although acerola extract is an efficacious colour protector as a single ingredient, it becomes even more active when used in conjunction with plant extracts such as rosemary extract and green tea extract. The unique advantage of the blended extracts maximise flavour and colour protection during long-term storage. Blends are available in liquid as well as dry forms and are recommended based on packaging and process conditions.
