BIOACTIVE PROPERTIES OF CBC SOL

BIOACTIVE PROPERTIES OF CBC SOL

Bordas has carried out a collaborative project with the aim of determining the different Bioactive Properties of the Bitter orange extract (Citrus Aurantium), CBC SOL, produced by Bordas.

CBC SOL is a mixture of citrus bioflavonoids with a minimum of 45% of content of these, produced in Spain and supplied all around the world by Bordas S.A.
What sets CBC SOL apart is its remarkable solubility, a remarkable feat in contrast to the traditionally low solubility of individual flavonoids.

To unveil the full spectrum of CBC SOL’s bioactive properties, we have embarked on a collaborative venture with the prestigious IATA Research Center, an esteemed division of the CSIC (Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology). Together, we delve into the depths of scientific exploration to unlock the secrets of this exceptional compound.

CBC SOL: PRESERVING QUALITY AND NUTRITIONAL PROPERTIES

Antioxidants play a vital role in preserving the freshness and quality of food products by counteracting oxidation reactions triggered by free radicals. At Bordas, we proudly present CBC SOL, a powerhouse with remarkable antioxidant capacity.

In the fast-paced world of the food industry, maintaining the nutritional properties and high-quality levels of products is of utmost importance. CBC SOL offers a solution by significantly extending the shelf life of food items. This exceptional compound acts as a shield, preventing rancidity and preserving the integrity of essential nutrients.

To ascertain the antioxidant activity of CBC SOL, we employed two standardized methods: the ABTS Method and the DPPH Method. These rigorous testing procedures allowed us to evaluate the efficacy of CBC SOL and confirm its exceptional antioxidant properties.

As we strive for excellence, it is worth noting that CBC SOL exhibits a remarkable antioxidant power comparable to that of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). With an equivalent value of 3680 μmol Trolox/g, CBC SOL stands as a formidable contender in the realm of antioxidants.

1. ABTS method

The ABTS method is carried out using Trolox as a standard, an analogue of Vitamin E, in an aqueous medium, obtaining the following results:

Sample ABTS method (μmolTrolox / g extract) ABTS method (μmolTrolox / g extract)
Water Ethanol
CBC SOL 2310,57 ± 85,74 2131,26 ± 58,50
ABTS method

2. DPPH method

The DPPH method is performed using ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) as controls, obtaining the following results:

Sample DPPH method (μmol Ascorbic Ac. / g extract) DPPH method (μmol Ascorbic Ac. / g extract)
T = 30 min T = 60 min
CBC SOL 122,71 ± 2,70 293,51 ± 3,36

HARNESS THE POWER OF CBC SOL: UNLEASHING ANTIMICROBIAL EXCELLENCE

In the food industry, preserving the integrity and quality of our products is paramount. At Bordas, we proudly present CBC SOL, a game-changing solution with exceptional antimicrobial capacity.

As per European Regulation 1333/2008, preservatives play a crucial role in extending the shelf life of food and beverage by safeguarding them against spoilage caused by microorganisms. They act as a formidable defense against the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

To ensure the efficacy of CBC SOL, we conducted a comprehensive evaluation of its antimicrobial potential. Our rigorous testing encompassed the determination of both the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and the Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC). Through these assessments, we gauged CBC SOL’s ability to inhibit bacterial growth and eradicate harmful microorganisms.

MIC

The lowest concentration of that inhibits the growth of a microorganism after its incubation. It is considered that there is inhibition when a growth inhibition value equal to or greater than 2 log of colony-forming units per milliliter is reached.

MBC

It is defined as the lowest concentration of antimicrobial that produces a reduction equal to or greater than 99.9%, equivalent to a decrease of 3 decimal logarithms.

The results obtained from the study are the following:

Sample L. innocua S. aureus
MIC (mg/ml) MBC (mg/ml) MIC (mg/ml) MBC (mg/ml)
CBC SOL 13 30 10 16

CBC SOL: A NATURAL MARVEL FOR FOOD INNOVATIONS

As we draw our conclusions, the potential of CBC SOL becomes increasingly evident. Its exceptional antioxidant capacity and antimicrobial effectiveness make it a powerful tool for food innovation.

In the ever-evolving realm of the food industry, finding natural and effective solutions is paramount.

Our extensive research has revealed that CBC SOL’s exceptional antioxidant capacity is likely attributed to its abundance of phenolic compounds. These natural powerhouses combat oxidation, preserving the freshness and quality of food products.

Remarkably, CBC SOL exhibits an antioxidant capacity of approximately 66% compared to the reference antioxidant, ascorbic acid (vitamin C).

Moreover, our study showcased CBC SOL’s impressive antimicrobial performance against the two strains examined. Its ability to combat microorganisms positions it as a compelling alternative to conventional antioxidants and preservatives. With its natural origin and incredible efficacy, CBC SOL emerges as a promising solution for the food industry.

What sets CBC SOL apart is its suitability for formulating clean label products. As a natural ingredient, it aligns perfectly with the demand for transparent and clean label food options. This makes CBC SOL an ideal choice for manufacturers in the food, beverage, and food supplement sectors.
