The most efficient way to delay oxidation and resulting rancidity in fats & oils is the use of synthetic antioxidants or plant extract blends—that’s where Kemin comes in. Because most lipids are susceptible to oxidation, they have a major impact on shelf life. Our products are proven to perform, enhancing the shelf life of your fats and oils.
Since lipids are often the principal cause of sensory degradation, it is essential to protect them, so they continue to perform properly. Oxidized lipids will react to form volatile compounds that cause rancidity in many food products. Kemin offers a variety of shelf-life ingredient solutions for fats & oils that help slow oxidation.
We can help solve your challenges right here, because we understand fats & oils and how they affect your final food product. Fats & oils play an especially important role, since they carry the taste components that make products pleasing.
In addition, our experienced technical team understands how ingredients work together, ensuring we can help you determine whether you need a simple, single-ingredient formula or a custom blend or extract designed to solve difficult, specific technical challenges with cost-effective solutions. Ensuring the stability of your lipids will help meet consumer expectations for fresh-tasting products.
Today’s consumers are reaching for simpler, natural, or ‘free from’ products, but still expect the utmost in terms of taste and freshness.
Consumers expect a product to taste fresh throughout its shelf life, but they demand much more beyond simple freshness. They want foods that taste great, have ingredients they feel good about, and are also a good value. But consumers have a wide range of expectations, so you need multiple options to help fulfill them. That’s why we offer a wide range of product solutions including synthetic antioxidants, tocopherols and plant-based solutions, with clean label options available—all to help your end product meet consumer demand, with just the right ingredients.
