Freshness Matters

Consumers base their initial meat and poultry purchases on color, but fresh and consistent flavor convinces them to buy the same meat products again. The biggest enemy to fresh and appealing flavor is oxidative rancidity (lipid oxidation), the cause of off-odors and off-flavors. Kemin’s natural plant extracts help delay lipid oxidation, protecting your product’s appeal by preserving its fresh aroma and flavor.

Consumers base their initial meat and poultry purchases on color, but fresh and consistent flavor convinces them to buy the same meat products again.

The Kemin team has the protein knowledge to determine the proper food ingredient solution to delay oxidation, considering

  • fat content
  • ingredient interactions
  • storage conditions

The team has the capability to conduct sensory acceptance testing in a specific meat matrix in our application kitchen in order to provide targeted solutions.
