Chimab R&D presents NATUROXI®, aromatic preparation, slightly vegetal flavoured, very effective and rich in spices extracts and vegetable extracts counteracting oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

In meat sector, and more generally in the food industry, traditional antioxidants such as ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate, often do not provide a complete anti-oxidant action due to:
 - variability of raw materials (age, origin, feeding);
 - variability of the production cycle (pH, Aw, presence oxygen, temperature);
 - variability of the conservation system (temperature-time, ATM, oxygen);

Extensive research carried out by the R&D of Chimab Meat Division have shown that specific plants and spices extracts have antioxidant properties which help resolving problems arising with exclusive use of common antioxidants.
Laboratory tests also show that the active principles of plant extracts have better performance than classic antioxidants: they act more effectively and in synergy with each other.

Observing these results, Chimab has developed NATUROXI®, balanced flavoring preparation, slightly vegetal flavoured, spices extracts and vegetal extracts based, rich in active principles with antioxidant power –  20 times better performing than ascorbic acid and 50 times better than Vitamin E – and with antioxidant, lipophilic and hydrophilic action.

NATUROXI® is ideal in:
 - processed meat products;
 - fermented and emulsified products;
 - hams and fresh sausages;
 - processed chicken and turkey
 - culinary and ready to eat products (fillings, lasagne, tortellini, cream based food preparations, hamburger, breaded products, sauces and many more)
   
Application tests have proven that NATUROXI® spices extracts and vegetal extracts cover off-flavours and have moreover antimicrobial properties helping shelf life extension.

NATUROXI® slows and prevents the oxidation and allows the possible complete replacement of traditional antioxidants.

NATUROXI® is an innovative and natural solution which helps also in:
 - clean label (no E numbers)
 - shelf life extension 
 - effective aid in slowing the developing of microbial.

Outline:

  • The role of fat, sugar and replacers cannot be ignored
  • Sugar and/or fat reduction results in higher biscuits with a smaller diameter
  • Replacing sugar and/or fat with Frutafit® CLR has a positive effect on the biscuit dimensions
  • Additional replacers, especially FOS, have an additional positive effect
  • Frutafit® CLR recommended for both sugar and fat replacement in sheet-and-cut short dough biscuit
  • Replacement level with Frutafit ® CLR of 50%, other 50% filled up with ‘matrix’
  • Optionally Frutalose ® OFP can be used additionally

Most attractive claim: Less sugar, rich in fiber

Sugar in biscuit recipes is important for dough properties, flow behaviour in the oven and texture, appearance and taste of the final product.

Typical for a soft American cookie is the soft, chewy texture. Maintaining this texture over shelflife is a challenge. Frutalose® oligofructose works excellent as sugar replacer in this type of product. The water retaining capacity keeps the cookies moist and soft over shelf life.
For cake and muffin Frutalose® oligofructose is recommended for replacing sugar up to 50%. These cakes and muffins with only half of the sugar level of the reference are slightly less sweet, but have a very tender crumb and soft texture.
