Kemin Food Technologies Asia has launched Powerpacked Molecule, a new technology which is said to enhance the chemical blending process and keep food and beverage products safer and fresher for longer.
Using the technology, Kemin has developed naturally derived antioxidants within similar levels of food protection as conventional natural antioxidants, but at reduced dosage amounts.
In laboratory tests, frying oils that contained Kemin antioxidants crafted with Powerpacked Molecule exhibited improved oxidative stability and reduced total polar compound compared to untreated oils or those treated with other antioxidants.
Kemin said that Powerpacked Molecule-crafted antioxidants help to delay the darkening of oil and extend the frying cycle for food before it needs to be replaced.
Fintan Sit, president of Kemin Food Technologies Asia, said: “The technological breakthrough of Powerpacked Molecule has created a new method for ingredient blending as a starting point in our product development. We have created a new generation of naturally derived antioxidants a using Powerpacked Molecule technology.
“Our core strength has always been helping food and beverage manufacturers maintain the freshness and quality of their products. At Kemin, it is our long-standing commitment to be at the forefront of delivering superior technology for food science to our customers who demand fresh, safe and cost-effective solutions.”
Powerpacked Molecule technology will be marketed under a new Kemin brand of antioxidant products which will be developed from natural extracts.
Earlier this year, Kemin launched a new food safety solution for processed meats called NaturCease Dry, as a response to increased consumer demands for products without artificial ingredients.
The product is a clean-label combination of buffered vinegar and natural plant extracts developed to keep processed meat products safe and fresh.
