CytoGUARD® OX line of label-friendly natural antioxidants is highly effective at inhibiting oxidation in foods to maintain taste, texture, and color over shelf life. Labeled "natural flavors", these powerful antioxidants are natural, clean label ingredients that ensure the safety and quality of your products throughout their shelf life.
Our natural antioxidants are produced through a solvent-free extraction of the phenolic compounds naturally present in Oregano, Jasmine Tea, and Mediterranean spices. We don't use chemicals or solvents in the extraction process. Unique, natural water- and oil-soluble extract blends, CytoGUARD® antioxidants provide a clean label solution that maintains quality and freshness in food products over shelf life.
A&B's line of natural antioxidants provides a clean label solution that addresses the problems of oxidation in food manufacturing. For instance, rancidity in certain foods results from lipid material (fat) undergoing oxidation reactions that produce aldehydes, ketones, keta acids and other compounds 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. CytoGUARD® water-soluble antioxidants can help reduce oxidation at the lipid/water interface. CytoGUARD® oil-soluble antioxidants can help extend the shelf life of the oils and the shelf life of the fried foods.
