Natural stabilizer for fish oil
Fish oil is a type of marine oil which is derived from the tissues of fatty fish. Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids which are beneficial to our body. But oxidation of fish oil is very rapid so in order to decrease the rate of oxidation, Prasan has developed natural stabilizer which helps in decreasing the rate of oxidation and increase the shelf life of fish oil.
Natural stabilizer for paprika
All forms of paprika, like the powder, flakes or oleoresin, processed from the matured fruit of Capsicum Annuum L. are used as industrial as well as culinary food colourants. The striking red-orange colour of paprika is mainly due to the presence of keto-carotenoids, namely capsorubin and capsanthin which comprise 70-80%. of the total carotenoid content of paprika. During processing and storage, the colour of paprika degrades mainly due to deterioration of carotenoids and this process is accelerated at higher temperatures and when exposed to light. prasan’s extensive and in depth research in this area has led to the development of RobustTM Red Paprika with decelerated colour degradation
Natural antimicrobial for Meat
Microbial spoilage and lipid peroxidation are primary causes of quality deterioration in meat and meat products, as it largely contributes to colour and flavor deterioration, loss of nutritional value and generates compounds that may be detrimental to consumers. Antioxidants inhibit lipid peroxidation and other free radical-mediated processes: therefore, they are able to protect consumers from several ailments attributed to the reactions of free radicals. Synthetic antioxidants have several toxic side effects. On the other hand, natural antioxidants have an advantage of being more acceptable to consumers as they are considered nontoxic.

Natural antimicrobial for vegetable stuffing
Cooked vegetables are the base material for traditional and convenient food products like stuffed paratha, samosa, puffs, etc. Cooked vegetable based food will spoil in very short time due to the microbial action which gives undesirable flavour and make it non edible. Prasan has developed natural antimicrobial which can extend the shelf life of cooked vegetable stuffings, thereby extending the shelf life of cooked vegetable based food products. Moreover, frozen storage to extend the shelf life of the food products may lead to various rheological, physical and sensory changes, which will affect the consumer’s acceptability towards that particular product. Prasan’s antimicrobial can be an effective solution for these kind of challenges faced by the industry.
Natural Antimicrobial for Apricot Chutney
Apricot chutney is an intensely flavored condiment made from apricot fruit. The acidity (low pH) of the chutney prevents growth of several spoilage and pathogenic bacteria, molds and yeasts. This acidity is derived from the added vinegar and the natural acids of the fruit. The cooking step also kills most microorganisms that may be present. Cooking the mixture to concentrate it lowers available moisture that is needed for microbial growth.
Processing the filled jars in a canner uses additional heat to kill spoilage organisms that might contaminate the product as jars are filled and to produce a vacuum seal for later storage. For most chutneys, a boiling water canning process is adequate, but other foods may require a pressure process. During storage in the sealed jar, oxygen and additional microbial contamination is kept from the product. Too much oxygen left in the jar will cause interactions with food components that lead to quality losses (for example, undesirable changes in color, texture, and flavor).
The Shelf life for Apricot Chutneys is very less and without any antimicrobial, the taste, color and consistency of the chutney may deteriorate. Our Research team at PRASAN SOLUTONS has developed a antimicrobial specially for apricot chutneys which will avoid any undesired taste and color changes with time. This avoids bacterial growth that may be possible when the jar is opened for quite a long time. This will prevent wastage of your favorite apricot jam in a more natural way and thus avoids any health repercussions there after.
Natural Antimicrobial for Fruit jams
Fruit jams are one of the most popular palatable food products not only because of its low cost but also of its all year long availability irrespective of the fruit season. Several types of seasonal fruits have been preserved and changed to value added food products such as jams. They are then canned or sealed to extend their shelf lives with added synthetic food preservatives during the commercial production .The synthetic chemical Benzoic acid in the form of its sodium salt is one of the most common chemical food preservatives in acid or acidified foods such as fruit juices, syrups, jams and jellies, pickles, fruit cocktails, etc. Similarly other synthetic chemicals like Potassium sorbate, Sodium metabisulphite, Niacin, Nicotinamide, Nicotinic acid etc. are also added in addition to acidity regulators like citric acid and thickeners like pectin. These chemicals when ingested with food will lead to severe health conditions which are hard to even diagnose and cure. The research team at PRASAN SOLUTIONS has developed a formulation designated as PRESOL PS 4606 based on natural ingredients that can effectively enhance the shelf life of Fruit Jams. The said formulation is perfect blend of natural organic carboxylic acids and green tea extract. These natural antimicrobial preservatives will prevent the fermentation of the food and are also safe for your gut.
