Rosemary revs up antioxidant power
Vitiva introduces AquaROX, a water-soluble, antioxidant rosmarinic acid in concentrations up to 70% for dietary supplement and food product applications. The product is completely soluble in water and is available in a wide range of concentrations (from 5% to 70% of rosmarinic acid active ingredient).AquaROX is a powerful water-soluble antioxidant that can be used in all water-based applications such as energy beverages and bars, breakfast cereals and other products. In many cases, blends with other natural antioxidants can provide synergistic effects. These blends are suitable for applications where it is important to preserve stability.Since AquaROX is highly concentrated, it contains fewer ingredients that can effect the organoleptic characteristics of food. AquaROX can also be used in other applications such as mayonnaise and processed meat by mixing it with oil-soluble rosemary extract. This combination may create a synergistic effect.AquaROX is also available in higher concentrations of up to 60% for very special applications in which tablet volume is critical. Vitiva offers a full range of deodorized oil- and water-soluble rosemary extracts at higher and lower concentrations and in powder and liquid forms.
