In recent years, there has been a significant raising demand in natural preservatives for food, feed and personal care products. A mixture of polyphenols extracted from the flesh of the olive fruit is an exceptional source of natural antioxidants, antifungals and antimicrobials. The material has its own patent number and can be applied – providing immense benefits – in the food and feed industry.
According to clinical studies in the chocolate industry, the olive antioxidants have proved to be a great natural substitute of other chemical preservatives. Additionally, in the oenological field, studies showed that olive antioxidants are great natural preservatives that successfully replace products such as Potassium Metabisulfite, Potassium Sorbate or even Vitamin C !
