A Quick Soluble, Natural Antioxidant for your Cold Brines
Herbalox® Seasoning Type QS (Quick Solubility) is a specially formulated natural antioxidant with excellent miscibility in cold brines for a clearly injectable solution to oxidation. Often, super-chilled water temperatures and competition among dry ingredients for available water prevent complete solubility of functional ingredients. Incomplete solubility can cause processing difficulties such as clogged injection needles or filters. Herbalox® Seasoning QS is formulated for cold brine miscibility to optimize your finished product, which means it is 100% functional as a natural antioxidant. With standard agitation, Type QS enters into solution easily and your brine remains transparent after its addition. No ringing out and no clinging to your tanks. Transfer loss is minimized and equipment malfunctions such as clogged injection needles or filters are avoided. The result is a flavorful product with a clean-cut face when sliced.
Improved Storage Stability in Poultry Products
Herbalox® Seasoning Type QS was added to a typical brine solution of pre-cooked chicken thighs and fresh chicken breasts. A control sample and the Herbalox® dosed sample were then held in frozen storage. TBA quality deterioration was measured over several months of frozen storage.
Test results indicated improved storage stability during frozen storage. Products made with Type QS were the least oxidized (lowest TBA values), while those without Type QS were the most oxidized (highest TBA values).
