In early of United States, Japan and some European countries, Rosemary Extract was developed as antioxidant, which have been proved to be safe by toxicological experiments and are widely used in fats, oil-rich foods and meats, to keep the products fresh. At present, 30% of antioxidants are natural antioxidants used in the United States and Japan, mainly vitamin E and rosemary antioxidants. It is predicted that this proportion will continue to increase in the future, with an annual increase of more than 10%.
Natural polyphenol antioxidants derived from rosemary have the characteristics of high antioxidant properties, good thermal stability, low production costs and natural non-toxicity, avoiding toxic and side effects on the human body.

Rosemary extract is a safe and efficient free radical scavenger, which can effectively prevent the oxidative rancidity of oils and prevent fading or discoloration caused by oxidation. The antioxidant effect is 2-4 times that of synthetic antioxidants BHA and BHT. Better than Vc, 1-2 times of tea polyphenols, 1-2 times of TBHQ. Its structure is stable, not easy to decompose, and can withstand high temperature of 190-240℃. Synthetic antioxidants such as BHA, BHT, PHT, PG and TBHQ have irreparable defects and bring unsafe factors to food.
