Antioxidants

Plants are composed of an amalgam of molecules with multiple properties. Among these compounds, some are powerful antioxidants.

By replacing synthetic antioxidants, you are simplifying the list of ingredients in your food products. For example, rosemary and acerola cherry extracts are rich in antioxidant molecules and are excellent alternatives to limit fat rancidity or to protect natural food pigments. A multitude of other natural extracts is available to meet the needs of each application.

BSA’s technical experts will help you find the right antioxidant so that you can reach your goals.

Lactic cultures

 

Fine deli meats, such as salamis and fermented sausages, fall into the value-added processed meat product category. To ensure the safety and quality of these meat products, it is essential to use microbial cultures adapted to each recipe and each manufacturing process.

Using the appropriate cultures adds extra protection against pathogenic bacteria such as Listeria monocytogenes, provides an authentic flavour to the product as well as optimizes and standardizes production cycles.

 

Thanks to its expertise in the food processing industry, especially with meat, BSA provides you with personalized assistance in the choice and use of lactic ferments in your meat products.
