Advantages of Carnosic acid

Nov 05, 2021

Carnosic acid is a diterpenoid monomer derived from the interior extract of the rosemary, which has a low polarity, it is insoluble in water and is readily soluble in oils, featured by high antioxidant properties, safe and non-toxic, and resistant to high temperatures. Because the antioxidant effect is obvious, safe and non-toxic, and resistant to high temperature, it is still stable and antioxidant at 200 degrees C, so that it can still be used in food processing processes, such as boiling, frying, frying, baking, etc., as a multi-life antioxidant.

Advantages of Carnosic acid

Here it needs to be said that a concept, terpenoids, and diterpenes, with a lot of their counterparts in foreign trade, might be asked. The main chemical constituents of rosemary are terpenes, mainly mono -, sesquiterpenes, di - and triterpenes, among which mono - and sesquiterpenes are the main constituents of rosemary essential oil. Diterpenes are the main components of rosemary antioxidants and include carnosic acid, carnosol, rosmarinol (ISO, table), rosmarinin (ISO), rosmarinic dialdehyde, and carnosol methyl ester, among others. Triterpenes mainly include ursolic acid, oleanolic acid β- Sitosterol et al.
