Frutarom Food Protection Business Unit’s organic rosemary extract prevents oxidation and increases shelf-life of foods and beverages by incorporating its active ingredients—carnosic and rosmarinic acids—into food and drink formulation.

Rosemary is a plant with anti-oxidative benefits and it can be used as natural protection from free-radical damage. Carnosic and rosemarinic acids can be concentrated naturally to yield the full variety of rosemary extract ingredients.

The antioxidants are produced using sustainable sources, heat stable up to 70 deg C, and both Kosher and Halal certified.
