DES MOINES, IOWA — Kemin Industries has released a new bakery and snack-themed animated video called “Antioxidants in Action” that showcases the oxidation process of bakery and snack products to explain why products lose color and flavor over time.

“This video is designed to help snack food manufacturers understand the impact of oxidation on their products,” said Courtney Schwartz, marketing director for Kemin Food Technologies. “Antioxidants play an important role in formulations, delaying the onset of oxidation and lengthening product shelf life.”

Des Moines-based Kemin offers several plant-based ingredients that control oxidation of bakery and snack products: GT Fort, NaturFort and Fortium. En-Hance, meanwhile, is a blend of antioxidants.
