Kemin's latest NaturFORT™ RSGT offers 'clean-label' substitute for EDTA
Kemin Industries, a leading provider of shelf-life extension and food safety solutions that help manufacturers keep food and beverage products safe, high quality and appealing, has recently unveiled NaturFORT™ RSGT, a blend of rosemary, spearmint and green tea plant extracts.
The new plant extract solution has been found to provide shelf-life extension in salad dressings and sauces and is a consumer-friendly alternative as manufacturers seek a replacement for previously used products such as Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA).
“Many manufacturers have been seeking consumer-friendly alternatives for shelf life extension since EDTA was removed from products,” said Chandra Ankolekar, Ph.D., Technical Service Manager, Kemin Food Technologies. “When replacing EDTA, manufacturers had to sacrifice shelf life or make significant adjustments to their supply chain to store and distribute these products in refrigeration. We have been working on this new solution and are pleased to share that the synergies of the extracts used in NaturFORT RSGT’s proprietary blend make it a more effective option than others currently being used in the market.”
“Our testing has shown great shelf-life extension results in salad dressing and sauces using this new blend of rosemary, spearmint and green tea extracts. It offers improved efficacy over the current plant-based solutions. While rosemary targets the oil phase when added to an emulsion, spearmint and green tea remain in the aqueous phase. A part of the actives works at the interphase, which is known to be the hot spot for oxidation, slowing down lipid oxidation and extending shelf life,” said Ankolekar.
Apart from salad dressings and sauces, the range of solutions under the NaturFORT™ brand can also extend the shelf life for a wide category of food and beverage products such as cooking oil, snacks, instant noodles as well as meat and poultry products.
NaturFORT™ contains a versatile combination of rosemary and green tea extracts with antioxidant properties that gives the synergistic benefit by providing superior protection and positively impact the flavour, colour and odour profiles.
Kemin provides food processors, manufacturers and formulators the ability to reduce costs, control inventory and meet demand, all while providing the visual appeal and flavor protection consumers demand.
