RENDOX® Synthetic Antioxidants for Rendering and Petfood Production

To provide maximum protection from oxidation, Kemin offers a dynamic range of synthetic antioxidants for rendering and petfood production under the brand name RENDOX. Specifically formulated to stabilize animal fats and protein meals during the rendering process, RENDOX antioxidants enable rendering companies and petfood manufacturers to maintain product freshness, protect product quality, and increase product shelf life and customer satisfaction.

The Right Antioxidant for Every Application

The oxidation process cannot be stopped or reversed. However, a complete stability assurance program can help to control oxidation through the petfood production process. Antioxidants function to inhibit or slow down oxidation by terminating free radicals. One of the key components to a stability assurance program is having an integrated approach to freshness protection.

Kemin understands that a successful quality assurance program must consider the entire scope of stabilization—from raw material quality to stability in the finished pet food product. Formulating a stability assurance program specific to each petfood diet is critical. That’s why Kemin offers a wide range of synthetic antioxidants like RENDOX, ensuring you have the right antioxidant blend for every application to achieve complete pet food preservation and freshness protection.

Not All Synthetic Antioxidants Are Created Equal

Numerous antioxidants used in the production of pet food – including tertiary butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), propyl gallate (PG) and ethoxyquin (EQ) – an effective job of controlling the free radical chain reaction associated with the oxidation process.

These antioxidants provide oxidative stability to ingredients used in the rendering and pet food industry, and while they are generally effective in controlling the autoxidative process, Kemin scientists recognize that these antioxidants react differently depending on the process and the substrate that is being stabilized. That’s why Kemin offers a range of synthetic formulations to provide maximum protection from oxidation.

Stabilizing Animal Fats and Protein Meals

RENDOX brand antioxidants are specifically formulated to stabilize animal fats and protein meals and aid in maintaining product freshness, protecting product quality, increasing product shelf life and ultimately increasing customer satisfaction.

The ideal antioxidant blend must be able to easily mix with the fat or protein meal it's designed to protect. RENDOX is manufactured to enhance the dispersion of the antioxidant within the matrix. Adding a RENDOX liquid antioxidant to fat or protein meal at the rendering plant requires extensive expertise and knowledge about plant and equipment design. Kemin’s Product Application Department (PAD) and Customer Laboratory Services (CLS) can provide the processing and testing expertise to support your quality programs.
