But what exactly are the benefits of using lemongrass oil in the food and beverage industry?
Flavor and Aroma
Lemongrass oil has a distinct citrusy flavor and aroma that makes it an excellent addition to many dishes and beverages. Its unique flavor profile can enhance the taste of desserts, sauces, teas, and more.
Lemongrass oil is known for its antimicrobial properties, which can help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in food and beverage products. This is particularly important in the production of canned and packaged goods where bacteria can thrive if not properly handled.
Lemongrass oil has been shown to aid in digestion and alleviate digestive issues such as bloating, cramping, and constipation. It can also help reduce inflammation in the digestive system.
At Pearl of Africa, we adhere to the highest quality standards in the food and beverage industry (and other industries, as well). Our lemongrass oil meets FDA and EU regulations, such as the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for the minimal citral percentage above 75%, the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) for the minimal citral percentage above 65%, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and European Medicines Agency (EMA). We also comply with labeling and packaging regulations and adhere to international standards such as ISO 22000.
By incorporating lemongrass oil into their products, food and beverage companies can provide their customers with high-quality, natural ingredients that offer a range of health benefits. At Pearl of Africa, we are committed to providing our clients with the best essential oils to meet their diverse needs.
