Frutarom expands organic oxidation management offering
Frutarom Food Protection Business Unit has expanded its organic oxidation management solutions line with an organic rosemary extract designed to prevent oxidation and increase shelf-life of food products. The natural Mediterranean botanical has been made possible through collaboration between Hishtil Nurseries in Israel and organic farmers in Spain.
A rising demand for natural and organic oxidation management solutions encouraged Frutarom to seek expertise in growing organic rosemary and incorporating its active ingredients, carnosic and rosmarinic acids, into food formulation to naturally increase shelf life of foods and beverages.
“We’ve eagerly responded to the demand to increase our offerings of organic ingredients in addition to our full line of natural products,” said Yoni Glickman, President of Frutarom Natural Solutions. “While it takes a considerable investment of time and resources to do it right, through the collaboration with Hishtil Nurseries and Spanish farmers, we have succeeded in creating a sustainable supply chain for this ‘farm-to-fork’ organic product, increasing value to consumers and serving a growing circle of customers.”
Rosemary is a plant that is said to have some of the greatest anti-oxidative potential. Native to the Mediterranean region, it is the source of powerful natural protection from free-radical damage. Carnosic and rosmarinic acids can be concentrated naturally using modern technology and yielding the full variety of rosemary extract ingredients available today.
“The challenge of staying close to nature involves high standards, with multiple protocols and certifications,” said Glickman. “But by putting the process through a detailed traceability approach and methods, Frutarom is able to take the lead in this complicated approach to providing the highest quality in organic solutions.”
