    Food Antioxidants

    Food antioxidants are food additives that can prevent or delay food oxidative deterioration, improve food stability, and extend shelf life. There are currently more than 150 compounds available as antioxidants. However, food antioxidants require rigorous toxicological testing, and few of them can really be used as antioxidants. Mainly include free radical absorbers, enzyme antioxidants, oxygen scavengers, metal ion chelating agents. "Antioxidants" on Echemi mainly supplies chemical raw materials for food antioxidants.

    Other Food Additives

    Commonly used food additives include two categories: natural additives and synthetic additives. Natural additives come from natural products, mainly extracted from plant tissues, and also include some pigments from animals and microorganisms. Artificial synthetic food additives refer to organic pigments made by artificial chemical synthesis methods, mainly made of aniline dyes separated from coal tar as raw materials.


    The food defoamer is refined by dispersing aids and emulsifiers with excellent properties. It has the characteristics of low dosage, safe and non-toxic, and obvious defoaming effect. The edible defoamer is specially designed for defoaming in the food processing industry, and is widely used in the food industry such as soy products, dairy industry, pharmaceuticals, dairy products, beverages, sugar industry, soy protein extraction, soy vinegar brewing, cigarette holder adhesives, etc. "Defoamers" on Echemi mainly supplies raw materials for food defoamers.


    Food preservatives are additives that prevent spoilage caused by microorganisms and extend the shelf life of food. It is also called antimicrobial because of the role of preventing microbial reproduction from causing food poisoning. Its main function is to inhibit the reproduction of microorganisms in food.
