Consumers are reading product labels and gravitate to products with clean label ingredients they recognize. The trend for transparency in labeling is the new normal and driving innovation across all CPG categories. Hence, non-GMO, high purity ingredients are at the top of the list to replace synthetic ingredients such as BHT and BHA.

Discover Blue California’s Clean, Nature-Based Preservatives


RosavelTM Rosmarinic Acid

A natural antioxidant found in RosemaryϮ

Rosmarinic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenol in the rosemary plant. Rosmarinic acid serves as an ideal alternative to synthetic antioxidants used in food preservation due to its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Rosmarinic acid demonstrates enhanced shelf life by preventing the oxidation of oils,3,4 browning of fruit and baked goods,5 as well as inhibiting microbial growth and the discoloration of raw meat.6

Blue California’s RosavelTM Rosmarinic Acid is:
  • Produced using a proprietary bioconversion manufacturing process
  • 95% high-purity rosmarinic acid
  • Compatible with clean label and Non-GMO
  • White color with low odor and taste compared to rosemary extract

p-Coumaric Acid

A NATURAL ANTIOXIDANT and ANTI-MICROBIAL FOUND IN NATURE

P-Coumaric acid is a natural occurring polyphenol found in wine, vinegar, honey, tomatoes, basil, garlic, several edible plants, many fruits and cereals. P-Coumaric is a potent antioxidant that can inhibit lipid peroxidation and radical scavengering, comparable to BHA, BHT, a-tocopherol and ascorbic acid.9 It is also an effective anti-microbial against E. coli and S. aureus,10 and shown in food systems.11

Blue California’s p-Coumaric Acid is:
  • Produced using a proprietary fermentation manufacturing process
  • 95% high-purity p-coumaric acid
  • Compatible with clean label and GMO-free
  • White color with low odor and taste

OataViaTM p-Coumaric Acid

A NATURAL ANTIOXIDANT and ANTI-MICROBIAL FOUND IN NATUREϮ

P-Coumaric acid is a naturally occurring polyphenol found in wine, vinegar, honey, tomatoes, basil, garlic, several edible plants, many fruits, and cereal grains like oats. P-Coumaric is a potent antioxidant that can inhibit lipid peroxidation and radical scavenging, comparable to BHA, BHT, α-tocopherol, and ascorbic acid.7 It is also an effective anti-microbial against E. coli and S. aureus,8 and shown in food systems.9

Blue California’s p-Coumaric Acid is:
  • Produced using a proprietary fermentation manufacturing process
  • 95% high-purity p-coumaric acid
  • Compatible with clean label and GMO-free
  • White color with low odor and taste

Taxifolin BC-DHQ®

A potent antioxidant for food preservationϮ

Taxifolin, also known as dihydroquercetin, is a potent lipid-soluble antioxidant found in onions, apples, and larch trees. Emerging research shows that it has an antioxidant activity similar to Trolox, α-tocopherol, BHT, and BHA, and can be used to extend shelf life, prevent oxidation and preserve color in ground meats or colored fish like salmon. An additional advantage is that taxifolin has potential immune health-supporting properties, so consumers can feel good about ingesting food that contains taxifolin as a preservative while at the same time potentially imparting health benefits.

Blue California’s Taxifolin BC-DHQ® is:
  • US FDA no objection to self-affirmed GRAS (GRN No. 916)
  • Non-GMO, vegan, and kosher
  • Sustainably produced using a proprietary bioconversion manufacturing process
  • Clean, reliable, and scalable production methods
