Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer that strives to sustainably transform the quality of life every day for 80% of the world with its products and services, has developed a new cost-savings indicator for Kemin Food Technologies – Asia customers in the region's frying industry to better understand and see the benefits of using antioxidants to extend the shelf life of frying oil, especially during times of market volatility.
Leveraging company expertise and internal studies conducted by Kemin scientists over the years, Kemin Food Technologies – Asia developed its cost-savings indicator as a tool to help food manufacturers learn more about using antioxidants to extend the life cycle of frying oil and save costs on oil usage. Through Kemin's historical data, the cost-savings indicator illustrates cost-saving scenarios based on the inputted information.
"On average, we found that effective adoption of antioxidants in vegetable oil can provide as much as 40% more frying cycles for frying oil and increase product shelf life by approximately 30%, which helps reduce the cost of using oil and ease pressure on the supply chain," said Michelle Lim, president, Kemin Food Technologies – Asia.
Adding antioxidants to vegetable oil provides production-cost savings and extends shelf life. Longer product shelf life reduces the use of raw materials, enhances logistical efficiency and minimizes food waste—all of which can impact climate change.
As fats and oils experts, Kemin Food Technologies – Asia recognizes the importance of vegetable oil in food manufacturing and how costly discarding sunflower, canola and palm oil can be for producers. The global challenges of the past few years have had a tremendous impact on the food industry, which continues to face rising costs and price fluctuations. To fulfill its role as part of the global food supply chain, Kemin Food Technologies – Asia is managing the impact of these variations to maintain pricing stability for its customers.
Kemin Food Technologies – Asia provides food processors, manufacturers and formulators the ability to reduce costs and control inventory, all while providing the visual appeal and flavor protection that consumers demand.
