The FDA has no objections to the GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status of Kemin’s oil-soluble green tea extract GT-FORT, says the company.

GT-FORT​–which is heat-stable – combines the benefits of oil solubility with the antioxidant properties of traditional green tea extracts, and can be used as an alternative to traditional tocopherols and replace synthetic antioxidants such as TBHQ in products such as soybean or canola oil, said Kemin​.

Suitable for oils, snack food and bakery products as well as sauces and dressings, GT-FORT significantly delays lipid oxidation, and lengthens the shelf life of food.

GT-FORT harnesses the antioxidant properties of green tea in an oil soluble form to significantly delay lipid oxidation in food, thus extending shelf life in a consumer-friendly way.”
