OxiKan – Unique natural antioxidants for meat applications
Fresh meat is always preferred in a bright red colour. However, it is highly prone to oxidation and needs to be treated with an anti-oxidant to prevent from spoilage. Commercially available Rosemary extracts pose a major challenge when applied to high fat, high protein meat due to the presence of natural fat-soluble colour compounds that bond with the fats giving it a yellowish-brown colour. Kancor with its proprietary technology has developed OxiKan R, highly refined extracts of selective anti-oxidant molecules from rosemary. It has excellent oil solubility and has very low colour and odour impact on the meat application.
