Protecting Fats and Oils

Let Kemin solve your fats and oils challenges

Kemin can help keep your fat and oil-based products fresher, longer – with our value-added plant extracts and antioxidants.

Kemin understands fats and oils – and how these ingredients play an important part in your final food product, especially since they carry the taste components that make products pleasing. Since lipids are often the principal cause of sensory degradation, it is essential to protect them, so they continue to perform properly.

Because most lipids are susceptible to oxidation, they have a major impact on shelf life. Oxidized lipids will react to form volatile compounds that cause rancidity in many food products. Consumers expect their product to taste fresh throughout its shelf life. Ensuring the stability of your lipids will help meet consumer expectation.

How can you stabilize fats and oils?

The most efficient way to delay oxidation and resulting rancidity is the use of synthetic antioxidants or plant extract blends – that is where Kemin comes in. Kemin’s products are proven to perform, enhancing the shelf life of your fats and oils.

Kemin offers a variety of protection solutions for fats and oils. Our product range offers synthetic antioxidants, tocopherols and plant-based solutions, with clean label options available to help you meet your product needs. In addition, our experienced technical team understands how ingredients work together, ensuring we can help processors determine whether they need a simple, single-ingredient formula, custom blend or extract designed to solve difficult, specific technical challenges with cost-effective solutions.

Learn more about these technical challenges and solutions in our webinar.
