Antioxidants

Extend shelf life more naturally and effectively

With global food consumption rising year-over-year, food security and availability is becoming increasingly important. Likewise, there is a growing need to reduce food waste. Currently, over one third of all food produced is not being eaten [Food wastage footprint, FAO, 2012], leading to approximately 1.3 billion tons of food being wasted every year. [UN reporting]

One of the main causes of food waste is chemical spoilage or oxidation. This can lead to chemical reactions in food creating browning, staling or moisture reduction. These oxidation processes change food sensory properties, such as taste, smell and color, which inevitably leads to shortened shelf life and inefficient use of raw materials. 

DSM can help prevent chemical spoilage of foods with our antioxidant solutions. We have the expertise and a robust portfolio of products to design tailor-made, efficient antioxidant solutions for your products.

Our unique analytical methods help define the optimal amount and combination of antioxidants for your products. We measure the antioxidants naturally present in the raw materials you employ to manufacture your product and then build a custom antioxidant system to meet your specific needs, saving you both time and money.

DSM can help you get to market faster with solutions that take you further. With our platform of sales and marketing support, we can help you create and launch products that your consumers will love.
