Kemin offers a guaranteed source of proprietary rosemary extract. Our plant-based ingredients have both flavoring and antioxidant properties that delay oxidation and increase shelf-life. Managing the entire process - from plant breeding and growing to extraction and blending - allows us to guarantee a sustainable, consistent supply of high quality products.
The shelf life of processed meats is limited by microbial spoilage and oxidative rancidity. During grinding, phospholipid membranes are disrupted, exposing unsaturated lipids, heme iron, and pro-oxidant enzymes to oxygen, which accelerates oxidation.
Treating your meat and poultry products with ingredients from Kemin can delay oxidative rancidity, while maintaining the flavor and color of your product.
