Fenchem to provide customised antioxidant formula
Fenchem has recently established a team specialised in tailor-made antioxidant formulas.
Antioxidants are attracting more and more attention in both ingredient and finished product markets and they are so important that they even appear in all daily-consuming stuffs for both human and animals, mainly used as food and feed additives to help guard against food and feed deterioration.
These additives include natural antioxidants such as ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and tocopherols (Vitamin E), as well as synthetic antioxidants such as tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), propyl gallate (PG), butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT).
In addition, antioxidants are famous for their healthy benefits both in the human and animal body, like scavenging the strong free radicals and quenching the singlet oxygen, to prevent damage or death of cells.
Many plant-based products are active in this area such as green tea extract, rosemary extract, lutein, lycopene and so on.
Fenchem, supplier of natural and synthetic antioxidants for more than 16 years, recently established a team specialised in tailor-made antioxidant formulas.
The people in the team have plenty of experience in studying antioxidants, especially in pet and livestock food.
The panel provides the value-added know-how solutions to customers and focuses on designing all new antioxidant formulas on each customer's requests, to make the formula more suitable for the customer's products.
There are synergistic effects between antioxidants, like Vitamin C and Vitamin E, Vitamin E and citric acid, meaning that when mixing two or more types of antioxidants, we can obtain a stronger antioxidation while using fewer amounts of antioxidants, which is efficient and economical for the customers.
