SoftAcid® is a highly efficient acidifier for fish silage production. It preserves the fish by-products from oxidation and reduces corrosion.
By-products from both farmed species and wild fish are used as raw materials for fish silage preservation. For this application we have developed a combination of formic acid and lignosulfonic acid, which controls the pH and reduces corrosion.
The lignosulfonic acid in SoftAcid acts as an antioxidant, which provides extra protection against degradation of the fish silage. Hence, SoftAcid improves the quality of the fish silage by preserving the fish by-products from oxidation.
- Increased antioxidant effect
- Stable fish silage/refined products
- Reduced corrosion
- Safer and easier to handle than pure acids
- More sustainable than pure acids
