The manufacturer recommends that you store hydroxytyrosol this way
To store hydroxytyrosol without affecting its characteristics, you need to take certain precautions to prevent its degradation and maintain its quality. Hydroxytyrosol is a natural antioxidant compound found in olives and olive oil, and it is sensitive to certain environmental conditions that can lead to its degradation.
We store hydroxytyrosol in airtight containers made of antioxidant-compatible materials, such as dark glass bottles or sealed plastic containers. These containers help prevent exposure to air and moisture, which can lead to oxidation and degradation.
Due to the photosensitivity of hydroxytyrosol, especially to ultraviolet light, we place the containers in a cool and shaded area, avoiding direct sunlight or strong artificial light to reduce light exposure.
Hydroxytyrosol is stored in a cool, dry environment, avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures, as high temperatures can accelerate degradation. Room temperature or below is suitable for storage.
We need to prevent moisture from coming into contact with hydroxytyrosol to avoid hydrolysis and degradation. The containers should be tightly sealed and placed in a dry environment.
We need to ensure that the containers used for storage are clean and free from any contaminants that could interact with hydroxytyrosol. Pay attention to the manufacturer's provided shelf life and expiration date. Use hydroxytyrosol within the recommended shelf life to achieve optimal performance. Clearly label the containers with the name of the compound, storage date, and any other relevant information to avoid confusion.
By following these measures, we can maintain the quality and performance of hydroxytyrosol for an extended period. Proper storage will preserve its antioxidant properties and effectiveness, making it suitable for various applications in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries, among others.
