Duralox® Oxidation Management Systems
At Kalsec® all mechanisms causing oxidative deterioration are reviewed to provide maximum protection resulting in prolonged shelf life of your products. Our Duralox® Oxidation Management Systems are based on the use of Herbalox® Rosemary Extract, green tea, acerola and/or mixed tocopherols, plus the addition of quenchers and/or chelators. Utilizing component synergism, Duralox® Oxidation Management Systems provide maximum protection from multiple aspects of oxidative deterioration. Duralox® Oxidation Management Systems are designed for specific product and processing conditions unique to each application.
Shelf Life Extension of Fresh Sausage
There are high expectations among global consumers that meat and poultry applications should have clean label attributes. Four of 10 consumers are influenced in their food purchases by whether those products contain artificial ingredients.
Due to the increase in consumer demand for clean label ingredients, a manufacturer of fresh pork sausages sought to extend shelf life during refrigerated storage without the use of artificial preservatives such as butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), propyl gallate (PG), or other artificial preservatives commonly used in meat preservation.
Decreasing Hydroperoxide Formation
A Duralox® Oxidation Management System was added to fish oil emulsion to improve shelf life for a dairy application.
Replacements for Partially Hydrogenated Oils
Kalsec® Herbalox® Rosemary Extracts and Duralox® Oxidation Management Systems offer economical, naturally sourced partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) alternatives when added to standard canola and sunflower oils, contributing the same stability found in PHOs.
Specialty high oleic oils can also increase oil stability, but typically are significantly more expensive than their standard oil counterparts. The addition of Kalsec® antioxidants to standard canola and sunflower oils can improve both performance and economics over high oleic oils.
Stabilizing Omega-3 Oils
Clinical data suggests that many health benefits are associated with omega-3’s. Omega-3 oils are noted for their high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). As a result, these oils are extremely susceptible to oxidation, which results in free radicals, off flavors and odors, and reduced shelf life. Herbalox® Rosemary Extracts and Duralox® Oxidation Management Systems enhance omega-3 oils with improved stability and significant increases in shelf life.
