Our Antioxidant Products

Antioxidants are compounds that prevent oxidation, which is a chemical reaction that ultimately damages the cells of organisms. They work by neutralizing free radicals by giving up some of their own electrons, which helps break a chain reaction that can affect other molecules in the cell. Antioxidants can either be manmade or derived from natural sources, such as fruits and vegetables, and are used in everything from processed foods to chemical products. At United Foods, we offer a wide range of antioxidant products for our customers across various industries.

Some of our available antioxidant ingredients are listed below.

Calcium Ascorbate

This nutritional compound combines ascorbic acid with calcium carbonate to create a buffered source of vitamin C.

Ascorbic Acid

This glucose compound is found naturally in citrus fruits and many vegetables and has vitamin C as its biologically active form.

Sodium Erythorbate

A food additive used mainly in meat and poultry, this antioxidant helps improve flavor stability and prevent the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines.

TBHQ

Tert-butylhydroquinon, or TBHQ, is a synthetic antioxidant added to prevent oxidation in food and preserve flavor, quality, and color.
