Ecom offers rosemary based antioxidants, through our Rosemarox™ Antioxidant line, which are suitable for slowing the oxidation of fats. Wherever fatty foods are used, Ecom's Rosemarox antioxidant extracts can preserve taste, improve appearance and extend shelf life.
How do Rosemarox™ Antioxidants work?
Over time the fats in food are degraded by oxygen. Rosemarox™ Antioxidants contain a number of compounds that slows the oxidation of fats.
By inserting Rosemarox™ Antioxidant extracts with these inhibitors into foods before fats start degrading, lipids maintain their integrity longer.
At Ecom we have considerable expertise in working with manufacturers to develop antioxidant products for specific manufacturing environments.

Applications for Antioxidants
Ecom has natural Rosemarox™ antioxidants with higher levels of carnosic acid that will lengthen the shelf life of light flavored products like mayonnaise without adding flavor or color.
Seasoning blends and processed meats
Ecom’s Rosemarox™ Antioxidant NR3401 is often used in applications that are especially price sensitive, and allow a hint of rosemary flavor.
Ecom’s Rosemarox™ Antioxidant NR3408 is used to enhance shelf life for the oils in skin creams. Since the added tocopherols act synergistically, this product is an effective choice.
