When treating ingredients, identifying the correct antioxidant for your application can be the difference between success and failure. To provide maximum protection from oxidation, Kemin offers a dynamic line of liquid, synthetic antioxidants under the brand name RENDOX®. Formulated specifically for treating commonly used rendered fats and oils, RENDOX antioxidants help maintain product freshness and protect product quality, as well as increased product shelf-life and customer satisfaction.
A number of synthetic antioxidants—including Tertiary butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and Propyl Gallate (PG)—are used to provide oxidative stability to fats and oils. While these antioxidants are capable of effectively controlling the autoxidative process, Kemin scientists recognize that these antioxidants react differently depending on the fat type being stabilized.
Adding a RENDOX liquid antioxidant to fat at the feed mill can be as easy as flipping a switch. The antioxidant can be directly injected into the line as fat is being pumped into the storage tank. This technique guarantees a more consistent dispersion.
