are stepping up to the occasion and developing
innovative meal and snacking solutions. They
are employing various ingredient, packaging and
processing technologies to keep product in prime
quality as long as possible.
Kemin Industries is a global ingredient
manufacturer that strives to sustainably transform
the quality of life every day for 80% of the world
with its products and services. The company
markets an extensive portfolio of ingredients for
the meat and poultry industry, including traditional
and plant-based clean-label ingredients to keep
meat and poultry products fresher, longer and
safer. (See page 6.)
"A growing number of meat and poultry
processors are exploring clean-label alternatives
to protect product quality during shelf life," says
Ms. Schwartz. "Plants in the Lamiaceae family,
such as rosemary, contain phenolic diterpenes that
can serve as effective molecules to scavenge free
radicals and delay oxidation in food applications.
When rosemary extract is combined with green
tea extract, a source of molecules known as
catechins, the resulting natural plant extract blend
can provide superior performance to stabilize meat
products during shelf life."

Kemin recognizes that the marketplace is
changing and processors must adapt quickly to
stay relevant. Retailers want to stock products
that shoppers buy. That's why Kemin encourages
product developers to work with its Customer
Laboratory Services (CLS) team to formulate
fresher, safer, longer shelf life meat and poultry
"The team's technical expertise and problemsolving skills will help you develop a tailored
clean-label solution to assist with producing the
highest-quality product," says Ms. Schwartz. "Our
CLS team provides dedicated support throughout
all phases of testing to understand the influences
of all food ingredients on the stability of your
final product. Whether you are formulating a new
product or reformulating an existing one, CLS can
help reduce your testing time and meet your goto-market goals."
The research scientists evaluate the oxidative
stability and microbial stability of meat and
poultry products using a combination of analytical
techniques and accelerated oxidation tests. They
assist with maximizing ingredient efficiency by
helping to determine the most effective treatment
for the product, identify the correct inclusion rate
