Fishmeal contains a significant amount of unsaturated oils. Also, due to the different manufacturing processes, it also has oxidation-promoting agents
This oxidation produces overheating of the flour, which can cause self-combustion if the process is not controlled
Several antioxidants have been used effectively to stabilize fishmeal, including ethoxyquin, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), and tocopherols (with or without rosemary extract). Of these, ethoxyquin has been, perhaps, the most widely used, and its efficacy is such that some researchers have considered it the standard against which the stabilizing effect of other antioxidants on fishmeal is measured.
The generically used antioxidant has been ethoxyquin, which, in accordance with regulations, is being replaced by different alternatives
The best alternative, for its cost effectiveness, is a synergistic mixture of BHA and BHT
All alternative formulations must feature a triple commitment.
1.- Demonstrated antioxidant efficacy
3.- Application conditions suitable for production facilities
Introducing the synergistic blend of BHA/BHT, of proven efficacy
As the first synthetic alternative
