FAIRFIELD, NJ, September 6, 2016 -- A&B Ingredients announced the availability of 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, A&B Ingredients' new Cytoguard antioxidants are based on a natural blend of tea extracts.
In making the announcement, Gil Bakal, A&B Ingredients Managing Director said, "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. Our new Cytoguard® OX-WST, water-soluble antioxidant, and Cytoguard OX-OST, oil-soluble antioxidant, directly addresses this problem and offers food manufacturers a natural means of reducing oxidation problems while ensuring quality and extending shelf life."
Cytoguard OX-OST is a powerful antioxidant that is specially designed for use in fats, oils, and food products with lower water content to reduce oxidation and rancidity while ensuring food quality and extending shelf life. It is well suited for food applications that include frying oils, as well as other types of fats and oils.
When used in nutraceutical and cosmetic applications, Cytoguard OX-OST is highly effective in cosmetic and fish oil applications.
Among the benefits of Cytoguard OX-OST:
