Interesting stuff on Marine Foods

Antioxidants use to preserve Seafood

Seafood, a popular cuisine in many cultures, goes rancid quite quickly, especially once processed and not in frozen form.

Commercially, synthetic antioxidants are known to be used to preserved the seafood, especially while in transportation to the markets. As there are health and safety concern with using synthetic antioxidants, natural antioxidants are a better alternative to help preserve the seafood.
