Rosemary and sage CO2-antioxidants extend shelf life of food naturally
By Flavex. CO2-antioxidants from Rosemary and Sage are highly effective multifunctional ingredients for retarding oxidation of lipids, essential oils and stabilization of carotenoids. Low volatility and thus excellent carry-through-effects make them effective in low concentrations. More and more consumers are concerned about the presence of synthetic chemicals in their daily foods. Therefore the demand for natural and organic food is going up. Rosemary and Sage antioxidants meet the customers´ expectation of natural food ingredients. Since CO2 is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe)-approved and compatible to EU as well as USDA-NOP organic certification, CO2-Rosemary and Sage antioxidants are increasingly used in organic certified products.
