To satisfy growing demand, both internationally and in the United States, the production of Danisco antioxidants recently began in St. Louis, Missouri. Products manufactured at the St. Louis facility include blends of natural antioxidants, blends of vitamin-based antioxidants and blends of traditional antioxidants.

The increasing demand for extended shelf-life foods has spurred the increased demand for Danisco#;s antioxidant line. The longer the shelf life that is required, the more protection is needed. Antioxidants help protect the flavor and color, primarily of fat-containing foods. The other major factor that has contributed to the increase in demand is the high usage of further refined oils, which contain antioxidants to prevent oxidative rancidity.

Danisco#;s extensive range of GRINDOX™ antioxidants are mainly sold as liquid blends, which are easy to handle and incorporate in a variety of products. Vitamin-based blends with ascorbyl palmitate and tocopherol, which provide a vitamin C and vitamin E effect respectively, and traditional blends with BHT, BHA, TBHQ and propyl gallate are available. Another product, Guardian® Rosemary Extract, meets the growing desire among some manufacturers to opt for natural solutions to extend shelf life.

The decision to expand production to the United States was made to better serve clients, and to take advantage of the growing demand for antioxidants in North America, one of the largest highly processed food markets in the world.

Besides increased capacity, the benefits of local production are many, explains Daniel Berlin, Industry Manager, Culinary with Danisco: “Local production allows us to customize products, allows us to make everything in a Kosher environment, and allows us to respond much more quickly to customer requests,” he said. “We should be able to easily meet the demands out of St. Louis,” said Berlin.

Antioxidant production got off to a smooth start at the St. Louis facility, where ingredient blending is one of their specialties. “Danisco can offer our expertise in emulsifiers and surfactants and a wide variety of food ingredients that allows us to more effectively use antioxidants in food products,” said Berlin. “We offer advancement in the functionality of the blends and how they can best be used.”
