The ingredients delay oxidation to maintain color in paprika and red-colored spice blends.

Kemin Food Technologies (Des Moines, IA) has launched Fortium TR30, a unique liquid blend of natural and plant-derived ingredients that the company says delays oxidation to maintain color in paprika and red-colored spice blends.

Fortium TR30 is a liquid combination of the company’s proprietary natural rosemary extracts and tocopherols. It effectively increases the color stability of paprika powder and other spice blends.

“Fortium TR30 was formulated to be the optimal alternative to traditional synthetic antioxidants,” says Will Schroeder, PhD, director of research and development for the Food Technologies division of Kemin Industries. “Our product offers a more cost-effective, consumer-friendly label option that is easy to use.”
