Solution Provider Help Desk:
NineSigma, representing a global consumer product company, invites proposals for novel antioxidant systems that can protect against oxidation in lipid/protein systems (up to 30% fat) at atmospheric environment.
Sustainability and safety are of primary importance in current and future consumer-product goods. The industry strives to provide safe and effective antioxidant solutions from sources consumers would recognize when reading the ingredient line of their products.
NineSigma’s client manufactures consumer products that rely on the synthetic ingredients for shelf-life extension. The RFP sponsor seeks safe and reliable ingredient and formulation alternatives that prevent lipid and protein oxidation to the same level of efficacy as synthetic ingredients (i.e. BHA, BHT, Citric Acid, Propyl Gallate, etc.) while being recognizable to consumers on the product’s ingredient line.
The successful technology will:
Possible approaches include ingredients, natural agents, and other physical or chemical processes with known antioxidant characteristics and/or mechanisms and no adverse effects to consumer recognition of ingredients in their product. Industries with possible solutions may include, but not be limited to, medical, pharma, chemical, food/beverage, nutrition, aerospace, military, and oil/gas.
The following approaches are not of interest:
