Oxidation and development of rancidity are major challenges for food manufacturers, resulting in shortened shelf-life and changes in the quality and nutritional value of their products. Consumers’ interest in natural antioxidants has increased dramatically over the past years and the general trend requires the replacement of synthetic molecules (e.g. erythorbates, BHA, TBHQ, BHT, propyl gallate, and sodium nitrite) to natural compounds.


Guardox™ BL is a natural bamboo leaf extract rich in flavonoids, used as a multi-functional antioxidant flavoring for preventing lipid antioxidation, decreasing the use level and residue of nitrate or nitrite colorants, antibacterial, color retention, odor-removing and taste-modifying in various foods.
