Solve Your Meat & Poultry Challenges

Kemin is your one-stop shop for meat & poultry solutions, offering both shelf-life extension and food safety options, as well as extensive technical expertise.

Watch to see how we “meat the challenge” of oxidation and food safety to help keep your meat & poultry products fresher, safer, longer.


Kemin helps you solve your meat & poultry challenges: colorfreshness and safety.

Lipid oxidation, or oxidative rancidity, is the cause of off-odors and off-flavors. It is the enemy attacking your product’s appealing color, appetizing flavor and aroma, as well as its overall safety. We have the tools and know-how to help you delay or slow the speed of lipid oxidation.

Our robust product portfolio was developed to help you meet your specific brand objectives, offering a range of ingredients from cost-effective synthetic antioxidant solutions to plant extracts, blends and organic options.

The increased consumer demand—especially for label-friendly products—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.

We can help you solve your colorflavor 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 one-ingredient solutions to more complex blends, with a highly experienced technical team. Not only do they understand the synergies of these ingredients, they can offer recommendations on the best point of application.

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.
