Meat and Poultry solutions

kemin helps you please consumers and solve your color, freshness and safety challenges

Today’s consumers are increasingly reaching for simpler, ‘free from’ and clean label products, but taste is still at the top of their shopping list. This increased consumer demand in an already highly competitive protein market requires effective solutions to help protect your products and increase your profitability. You can trust Kemin to deliver the difference you need for your product to succeed.

Watch to see how we tackle oxidation and help keep your meat and poultry products fresher, safer, longer.


We can help you solve your color, flavor and microbial challenges right here. We understand proteins—and how different processing techniques and packaging affect them. We offer solutions that are tailored to your individual needs, from simple solutions to more complex blends, with a highly experienced technical team who understands the synergies of these ingredients and can offer guidance on the best point of application. Our robust product portfolio was developed to help you meet your specific brand objectives, offering a range of ingredients from cost-effective synthetic solutions to plant extracts, blends and organic options.

Our Research and Development (R&D) team uses formulation technology to determine the optimal and most cost-efficient inclusion rate in each meat matrix. Our Customer Laboratory Services (CLS) team provides dedicated support throughout all phases of testing, using a combination of analytical techniques and accelerated oxidation tests to provide customized shelf-life solutions that also help you achieve ‘claimability’, with label claims that meet today’s consumer demands.


Our complimentary white paper “Time is Money: Oxidation and the Bottom Line in Fresh Sausages and Ground Meats” highlights how consumers ‘eat with their eyes’, relying on an appealing appearance to ensure fresh and flavorful choices. The white paper illustrates how shelf life oxidation changes affect purchase decisions and how antioxidant ingredients provide the most cost-effective prevention methods. 

Our complimentary inforgraphic "Meat Still Rules" takes a look at the ever-changing meat and poultry landscape. Plant-based meat alternatives are continuing to increase in the marketplace, but many consumers still prefer traditional meat and poultry options.
