A&B Ingredients now brings you two new powerful naturally blended CytoGuard® antioxidants — CytoGuard® OX-WST and CytoGuard® OX-OST.  Providing a clean label solution that addresses the problems of oxidation in food manufacturing, these two extraordinary antioxidants are based on a natural blend of tea extracts.

We know that rancidity in certain foods is the result of lipid material (fat) undergoing oxidation reactions which produce aldehydes, ketones, keta acids and other compounds that are responsible for odor and off-flavors. Not only does this cause flavor and quality loss, but it also affects the nutritional quality of your food product, not to mention the health risks associated.

Now A&B Ingredients CytoGuard OX-WST, a water soluble solution, and CytoGuard OX-OST, an oil soluble solution, offer food manufacturers a natural means of reducing oxidation problems while ensuring quality and extending shelf life.
