Kemin launches EDTA alternative to delay lipid oxidation
Kemin has introduced its NaturFORT RSGT as a replacement for chemical food additive Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid to delay lipid oxidation in products like sauces and salad dressings. "While rosemary targets the oil phase when added to an emulsion, spearmint and green tea remain in the aqueous phase. A part of the actives works at the interphase, which is known to be the hot spot for oxidation, slowing down lipid oxidation and extending shelf life," said technical service manager Chandra Ankolekar.
