Plant-Derived Oxidation Control Solutions

When it comes to food, oxidation is the enemy. Oxidation deteriorates the appearance and quality of your food product and can cause off flavors and odors. At Kemin, we help make a wide range of food products fresher and more appealing with longer shelf life.

How do we do it? With our plant-derived label-friendly oxidation control solutions. Watch the video below to learn more.


Why Label-Friendly Oxidation Control Solutions?

The trend towards clean eating is across the food industry, and it is here to stay.

Recent survey results found the importance of simple, short and recognizable ingredient lists-the hallmarks of the current clean label trend. 50% said they are more likely to buy a product if they recognize all the ingrdients listed on the label and 44% said they are happy to pay a higher price for a product with recognizable ingredients.1

Clean label can mean many different things including:

  • more natural, less processed
  • made with tradtional ingredients that are familiar to consumers
  • greater transparency and simplicity
  • free of artifical components
  • locally and sustainably sourced


The Role of Antioxidants

Antioxidants are molecules that significantly delay or prevent oxidation, lengthen shelf life and help to maintain consumer acceptance and brand loyalty.

We understand the synergies of ingredient behaviors and use our extensive know-how to develop oxidative control solutions that positively affect shelf life. Unlike processing or packaging changes, ingredient adjustments are the most cost-effective method to delay oxidation.2

Antioxidants can help:
