Rosemary - Natural Antioxidants
Spisys SCFE Facility for Superior Product
- Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L) leaves are a source of highly active antioxidants belonging to the group of diterpene phenols. Antioxidants are important additives in food and cosmetic formulations for increasing their shelf life.
- Rosemary extracts as new generation antioxidants meet the consumers demand for botanical functional additives.
- CO2-extraction allows the production of concentrated and well-standardised products with respect to the active diterpene phenols and the residual flavour.
- CO2-extraction gives products which have a superior composition profile since the genuine carnosoic acid as the most important component is widely preserved.
Spisys oleoresin rosemary is a purified extract of rosemary from which nearly all of the characteristic rosemary odor and flavour have been removed, leaving a faint note, which is usually absent at levels used in the final application. Rosemary contains a series of natural compounds, present in the rosemary plant (Rosmarinus officinalis), whose antioxidative properties retard the oxidation of lipids. Two of the compounds are carnosoic acid and rosmarinic acid.
- Retard rancidity in fats and oils
- Help protect carotenoidic pigments and essential oils from oxidation
- Slow flavour degradation
