FORTIUM RGT is a versatile combination of rosemary and green tea extracts that complement each other by providing superior antioxidant protection without negatively impacting flavor, color and odor profiles.
These blends are highly efficacious in sauces, dressings and condiments as well as meat and poultry products. When treated on an equal cost basis, a rosemary/green tea extract combination is a more effective label-friendly solution than rosemary or green tea extracts alone. Why? It protects the entire lipid portion of the ground meat and allows for a higher application rate.
Using a rosemary extract and green tea extract blend may provide other advantages over single-ingredient antioxidant solutions.
First, adding high use levels of rosemary extract or green tea extract alone may negatively affect the flavor of the meat, but the blend of both extracts would not and thus can be applied at higher use rates.
Second, the catechins in green tea extract may act as an iron chelator, suppressing the iron released from the hemoglobin that can be prevalent in ground meat and can act as an oxidant.
